Dramatic room schemes designed by Saar Zafrir marry elements of art nouveau with mid-century detail. Metal, wood and glass combine with collections of local art, vintage rugs, and custom-made furniture to create eclectic, supremely comfortable interiors. The attention to detail ensures fascinating arrangements, such as in the Sir Savigny Suite’s bathroom with dark-painted box shelving displaying a quirky mix of books, accessories and toiletries. The public areas, designed by the firm Baranowitz + Kronenberg, are open and convivial with some areas dedicated to peace and quiet, such as the Kitchen Library, while the Wintergarden with a patio area featuring striking graffiti art is for more social gatherings and exhibitions.
This 44-room urban hotel, built in 1893, has been redesigned to reflect the lifestyle of its mythical founder, Sir Savigny, a bon vivant who has dedicated his life to storytelling.
