One brand, two hotels.
The team at Spacebrand were tasked with redesigning guest rooms at Mercure Hotels in both Cardiff and Sheffield.

With both interiors, the brief was “to design both interiors with strong regional routes in an authentic and contemporary way which would evoke within the guest what is most appealing about each destination.”

The team at Spacebrand explained the design inspiration for both schemes, which include Yarwood Faux Leather Colorado Savana on Midj Sonny PB X desk chairs.
The refurbishment of the hotel rooms focused on the overall look and feel, operational efficiency and attention to detail to make a dramatic difference to the guest experience and ensures that their stay is a memorable one.

Mercure Cardiff Hotel Guestroom Design

“Undulating and flowing grooves represent the tidal sands of Cardiff bay, In Cardiff the use of graduated colour and a palette of ripples and organic textures is suggestive of a historical timeline, identifying a transient past. The layers of sand and colourful sediment reflect a diverse industry, culture and race within Cardiff and the surrounding area through the decades.”

  Mercure Sheffield Hotel Guestroom Design

“Cellular patterns and structural forms have been encapsulated through the use of textiles and colour within the interior design concept for the hotel rooms in Sheffield and natural materials pay tribute to a fresh forward looking city known as “ the Steel City” that has progressed from the nostalgic and retrospective use of steel and concrete.”
