Individuality at floor level

“The central feature of the carpet design is the ‘lollipop’ in the entrance lobby, which is a perfect circle highlighting the organic curves in the central core which continue up the steps to the raised bar area, encouraging people into other areas of the hotel. At the top, the carpet segments, directing visitors to the restaurant or bar area.


The corridor carpets have been designed to complement the energetic, fun design of the hotel interior. Water and waves provided inspiration for this design, highlighting the hotel’s unique location on the Garavogue River.”
