Blacksheep. – Qbic Hotel London

Blacksheep. has unveiled its latest design wonder, the Qbic Hotel London City. This is an innovative hotel concept for the British market, Blacksheep describe it as being ‘an affordable pod style hotel for the budget savvy traveller.’


The creative brand definitely has a lot of character and Blacksheep have really shown that throughout the extravagant but affordable hotel, everywhere you look there are elements of technology and design, very much in accordance with current life.


The futuristic element of this hotel comes from the ‘Cubis’ an all-in-one living space, which is put together off site and then pretty much dropped into the room, with bed and the living room attached. (see image above) Each of the cube shaped living spaces has its own unique artwork based within, which is really what this hotel is about – being unique at an affordable price.


The Qbic Hotel is located in area of Brick Lane and the creativity of the area seems to flow into the hotel. The Qbic brand seeks to invite local bakers, small business owners and artists to use the space as their own ‘creative sanctuary’. The design process for this project saw Blacksheep using the innovation from a range of local suppliers but also from the company homeland of Holland.


These affordable luxury hotels are becoming vastly more popular and I can see many more popping up soon, Hotels that are creative in there look and feel but soak in their surroundings.
