NOBU SHOREDITCH

Located in the heart of London’s artistic district, The Nobu Hotel Shoreditch offers a dynamic blend of the Nobu brands signature design and culture merging east-meets-west energy.

 

Designed by Ron Arad Architects in conjunction with Ben Adams, see overhanging floor slabs and cantilevered steel beam forms create a contemporary and organic transition between the hotel and restaurant spaces. With the area’s extensive cultural significance in mind, the hotel was thoughtfully designed to incorporate the essence of London’s hub of creativity with the Nobu brands iconic aesthetic. The simple palette of concrete, bronze , timber and glass, with warm textured textiles, is a not towards location but also the subtle Japanese design aesthetics which can be seen throughout Nobu hotels worldwide.

 

Each guestroom is an intimate space but exudes elegance and sophistication in a stylish, industrial wrapping. Timeless, yet contemporary, the rooms feature black joinery details juxtaposed by refined, exposed concrete of the structure and soft textiles – this appeals to the senses as well as being visually interesting. The warehouse look has been polished to ensure a more luxurious feel.

 

Hackney-based artist Sichi was commissioned to produce art installations in all rooms, which represent the hotel’s location and its connection to Japanese cultural heritage. The series of original paintings is titled ‘Taizu’, which translates from Japanese as ‘stay’, directly relating to residing in a hotel.
