Doubletree by Hilton

  • Communal hotel lobby and lounge


We were tasked with designing the lobby space and public areas within the newly opened Doubletree by Hilton hotel in Kingston.

Our brief was to create a comfortable, eclectic and functional space that works from day through to night, which uses a palette of refined urban materials as points of interest.


On arrival hotel guests are led through an inviting open-plan lounge area to an array of dedicated check-in desks, which are decorated with intimate drapes and soft cooper pendant lighting.

The lobby is designed to be a welcoming and social space, with a blend of relaxed seating and tables suitable for groups, lone travellers and casual business meetings – all of which project a sophisticated image and atmosphere that sets the tone for the guest’s experience.

A grand 10-metre bar illuminates the area with its rich cooper façade, seamlessly blending the ‘lobby lounge’ into the restaurant space.
