PPHE Hotel Group has released new images of its first London brand Art’otel, which is due to open in Battersea later this year.
The 164-room Art’otel Battersea powerhouse will feature interiors by Spanish artist and designer Jaime Hayon, who was inspired by both the building’s history and ‘the future at the center of a new neighborhood and cultural district.
Rooms include a bold and colorful palette, and a collection of original artwork will be on display in rooms and public areas.
“I was very excited to develop the interior design for a hotel project in London at Battersea Power Station, which is set to become a new center for arts and creativity. art at Art’otel London Battersea Power Station makes it a unique perspective to explore the interplay between art, product and interior design and I look forward to creating something truly special in this iconic location in central London.
Boris Ivesha, Chairman and CEO of PPHE Hotel Group, added:
“Jaime Hayon’s diverse expertise made him an obvious choice when selecting a designer for this exciting new hospitality and art venue that sits at the heart of a new cultural district in London. Hayon is an exciting, internationally acclaimed artist whose designs fall outside the typical mold of hospitality, reflecting the distinctive energy of the art’otel brand, his vision will perfectly complement the architecture of Foster + Partners, making it a design center of excellence.
The construction of the hotel is coming to an end, the rooms, the bar and the restaurant are being fitted out.
Battersea Power Station will open from September and will house over 100 shops, bars and restaurants, a boutique cinema and event and leisure spaces. There will also be a glass elevator carrying visitors up one of the power plant’s chimneys to the top to enjoy 360-degree views of the capital’s skyline.
Business trip first reported on the 164-room property in 2015and was originally scheduled to open in 2019, but the group’s latest business update says the 164-room hotel will now be unveiled in the second half of 2022.
