Athenaeum Hotel and Residences
The Athenaem is located in Green Park, Mayfair. Steeped in history, this 5 star hotel oozes luxury, on the doorstep of many tourist sites, with spectacular views across Green Park. Family owned since the 1990’s the hotel remains independent and is an award winning one of a kind.
Following a recent revamp to public areas and bars, and well aware of customers’ high expectations, the owners decided it was essential to refresh the guestrooms. A great deal of thought and detail was invested in to the development of luxury concepts to give this historic hotel the new look it deserves.
Martin Hulbert Design, a valued and trusted design practise were tasked with the refurbishment. The bedroom schemes needed to be cool and calming to fit in with beautiful views over Green Park.
The initial concept was adapted from a hand printed velvet. Skopos designers took inspiration from this and transferred an idea onto cool and calming sheers to cover the full floor to ceiling windows.
The design development process was a challenge. Skopos design team used their extensive print and design knowledge to rework the design and colours to achieve a graduated effect. The sheer panel was coloured in three different shades: Rust, Aqua and Natural.
Skopos were asked to source Luxury wool throws and cushions with a herringbone design to dress the bed. The designers developed bespoke colours to match each sheer. Delicate cushions with tassles were produced to sit alongside the throws.
The finished schemes look refined and elegant and have breathed new life into the rooms confirming the hotels unique status.
