We are delighted to announce that together with Hot-wire solutions Ltd – Crowthorne Voice & Data have been awarded ICT contract for Nobu Hotel – Nobu Hospitality is excited to announce its first European hotel, the Nobu Hotel Shoreditch in London.
The Nobu Hotel Shoreditch London, which is currently under construction and projected to open in Q1 2017 and is under a long-term management agreement between Nobu Hospitality and the Willow Corp Sàrl, the owner of the hotel. It is being developed by Meir Abutbul, the London-based boutique hotel developer.
With the project underway, we are looking forward to making a huge contribution towards Nobu’s provision of excellent guest experience.
Nobu Hospitality will open the 150 room hotel at 10-50 Willow Street in the Shoreditch area of London with food and beverage menus to be developed by Chef Nobu Matsuhisa specifically and uniquely for the hotel. As with all Nobu properties, the design will reflect both the city of origin, as well as Nobu Hospitality’s signature east-meets-west philosophy. The overall interior design is a creative collaboration between Ben Adams Architects, Studio Mica and Studio PCH. Additionally, the hotel will feature banqueting and meeting rooms, a state-of-the-art fitness centre and modern amenities combined with superior service.
“The Nobu Hotel Shoreditch in London is our first European hotel joining our growing portfolio collection of hotels covering select locations in the Americas, Middle East and Asia,’ explains Trevor Horwell, chief executive officer of Nobu Hospitality. “Our proven business algorithm for hotel owners is our tactical and competitive advantage, focusing our effort on maximizing return per square foot. We are as such continuing to expand our global hotel footprint with a robust development pipeline working with the best strategic partners.”
The architectural design draws on the vibrant cultural and industrial context. The hotel’s five stories are fractured into angular, fair-faced concrete balconies which combined with cantilevered corten steel beams, form a seemingly frayed edge to the northern façade. Six protruding slab edges penetrate the glazing and accentuate the horizontality of the volume. Utilizing innovative printed, layered glass, the highly reflective façade balances privacy and exposure, and interacts with its surroundings through the interplay of color, reflection and light. An intimate landscaped garden at the site’s eastern edge is articulated into terraces, seating and planting, and provides natural light and access to the generous lower triple height restaurant and bar space.
Nobu Hotel will be part of Shoreditch’s dynamic creativity energy. “Expect imaginative food creations from Chef Nobu Matsuhisa and unforgettable guest experiences that will nurture Shoreditch,” said Gigi Vega, general manager of Nobu Hotel Shoreditch.
