The Mondrian

Shoreditch is a well-known hub for trendsetting and excitement, renowned for its celebration of the unique and the bold. With our work for the Mondrian Shoreditch, we wanted to create something that playfully incorporated Shoreditch’s originality and spark whilst maintaining a timeless and high-end feel. Our use of bespoke, double-layered chandeliers creates a beautiful visual to welcome guests to the East London hotel, offering continuity as the lights continue through to guide visitors into the lobby and on to the rest of the hotel. Alongside our feature lighting, we provided further lighting in the public areas of the hotel, including floor and wall lamps, all completely bespoke and intended to accentuate the hotel’s beautiful interiors and offer eye-catching details. This piece is sure to make a lasting impression on visitors for years to come.

Minories – Canopy by Hilton

Canopy is Hilton hotel’s luxury boutique branded hotel in East London. Hoad & More created this striking installation to match the building’s ornate exterior. The bronze dish lighting in the lift lobby is complemented by the continuation of the lighting in the guest room corridors. 

Residence Inn Ghent – Guestroom

For the guest rooms in this Belgium-based hotel, Hoad & More provided a range of features to enhance the guest experience. The mirrors appear in two sizes, and offer varied lighting options and demisting. Built-in illuminated buttons help the guest shape the products to their needs. The bedside lighting is brass-finished to suit the space and is completely adjustable. Complimenting all this are the backlit Wall murals, complete with matching imagery that ties in the rooms’ interiors with Hoad & More’s work in the public areas of the hotel.

Residence Inn Ghent – Public Areas

Inspired by American abstract artist, Alexander Calder, this mobile installation from Hoad & More draws the eye of visitors and guests and enhances the space in Residence Inn Ghent’s open-plan reception area. The piece’s three illuminated globes are suspended in a fashion that allows them to move slowly under their own weight. This dynamic feel, combined with the ambient light from the elegant globes, gives the installation an organic effect and creates a mesmerising feature.

Hilton Munich

The room numbering at the Hilton Hotel, Munich showcases Hoad & More’s commitment to the finer details in order to make a project work and work brilliantly. We were commissioned by Goddard Littlefair to produce a custom room number with appropriate lighting, something that matched and complimented the surroundings and existing signage. By using the colours and materials found elsewhere in the hotel we were able to design and create numbering with the rich brown outer loop as pictured, brought to life with an illuminated number set. The antique, hand-finished brass dish the numbers are set within offers exquisite colour tones and suits the rest of the hotel perfectly. From a large-scale, 300+ piece project to a single, bespoke installation, we believe in design excellence tailored to our client’s needs.

50 Kensington gardens

This project was an opportunity for Hoad & More to apply our expertise to develop a new door and wayfinding signage solution. Taking forward the concept design issued by Lynne Hunt interiors for the pictured London residential property, we set to work bringing lighting into the equation to create uniform numbering and lettering units that complimented each other and the features of the surrounding space. Each unit was supplied with a wall mounting bracket for ease of maintenance and installation. Each piece, featuring raised, laser-cut lettering or numbering, was individually illuminated by LEDs and is set proudly on a bronze frame to create clear and lasting signage, designed and manufactured with elegance in mind.

Admiralty Arch

Working with our partners Lutron Electronics, Hoad & More developed a range of switch and socket panels to control the lighting within the sample rooms at this landmark London location. Designed to compliment the interiors of this historic site, each panel has been manufactured from brass, with either a polished brass or polished chrome finish, and is engraved to indicate switch uses.  For our part in bringing this remnant of Empire into the 21st Century, we have also incorporated card reader technology and status indicators for Do Not Disturb, make up room and doorbell functionality.

375 Kensington High street

Each block of these prestigious Berkeley Group apartments had a different design brief so our team of designers created two new products, one to compliment each block’s design. The first variation was composed of backlit fawn glass with a touch doorbell, complete with a bronze frame.  This included an illuminated scroll detail designed by Sue Faulkner for the Tai Ping carpets that were installed in the corridors. For the second variation, we supplied a brushed stainless steel push button positioned in a stone door number panel. Our versatile approach to every project allowed us to fulfil this brief to create two very different, but equally striking, results.

Donnington Manor

Hoad & More’s work for this 15th Century manor house hotel in Sevenoaks has seen us customise our door signage solutions to incorporate the clients logo, adding a personal touch to the project. Manufactured from acrylic and stainless steel, the edge-illuminated door numbers also include integrated makeup room lights and do not disturb indicators. We matched further wayfinding and signage solutions to the door signage to tie together the individual components and create a cohesive feel for guests as they explore this historic space. 

The Arts Club

The Arts Club is a members-only social club in Mayfair, founded in 1863. In 2015, the club underwent a complete renovation and re-launch and Hoad & More were engaged to design and manufacture a new room-numbering and locking system. We kept the club’s wealth of history in mind when working on the project and created timeless additions to the space. The technology is modern but the style we have embraced compliments the surrounding decor to maintain a consistent and elegant feel. Each door number is manufactured from brass, recessed, and side-illuminated with LEDs. The lock reader cover for the VingCard Essence lock was produced to match the club’s wooden doors, seamlessly integrating the technology into the door. We pride ourselves on our ability and enthusiasm to customise our work to suit a client’s needs, a commitment that shines through here.

Bijou Bar

Hoad & More’s solution for The Bijou Bar is inspired by our award-winning lighting design, Catherine Wheel, evoking excitement and joy in the onlooker without losing the sophistication and elegance synonymous with the Radisson brand. Whilst a striking design, the piece remains subtle with its lighting output being diffused to create a gentle illumination in keeping with the relaxing, contemporary feel of the bar.
