Inhabit Queen’s Gardens is a boutique hotel located in London and designed by Holland Harvey and Caitlin Henderson Design with calmness and wellbeing at its core.
Located in one of a mid-19th century townhouses in the London neighborhood of Bayswater, the hotel features peaceful color schemes and natural materials, guest rooms, and public areas designed with a passion for well-being that promotes health and sustainable approach to hospitality.
Holland Harvey Architects, Caitlin Henderson Design and art curators Culture A have collaborated with Inhabit Hotels to create the tranquil new space. Its soothing style blends contemporary Scandi inspiration and Eastern philosophical awareness with quintessential British design.
The hotel contains 159 guest rooms, along with guest facilities that include a ground floor cafe and bar, a lounge, a library workspace and fitness studios. The ground-floor space is designed to feel like one large, welcoming space, with the reception desk tucked away at the back to encourage more people to wander in from the street.
Inhabit showcases the ingenuity and creativity of craftspeople, working with more than 30 makers and artists to create Inhabit Queen’s Gardens. Goldfinger, an award-winning social enterprise demonstrating that high end design can and should be people and planet positive, has produced bespoke joinery for the hotel throughout the public areas and guest rooms.
Bedrooms prioritize sleep with decor that fuses Scandi, British and Eastern elements, whilst tranquil communal areas include comfortable lounge areas, a noise-free library, a 70-cover plant-heavy menu restaurant and bar, and a subterranean wellness area provides treatment rooms, a fitness suite, and yoga studio. With a genuine commitment to environmental initiatives and meaningful community partnerships, more than 30 makers and artists collaborated to make Inhabit Queen’s Gardens a reality.
The food here is in collaboration with award-winning Devon health retreat, Yeotown, who has conceived a 70-cover restaurant that serves up an all-day menu in a light and airy space that represents a whole new concept for the neighborhood. With a stylish marble bar, furniture from social enterprise Goldfinger, expansive windows, curated artwork, and design pieces from independent makers, it’s a perfect spot with around-the-day flexibility for diners, guests, or coworkers. The menu is inspired by the healthy living Californian lifestyle and is proudly meat-free, as well as being free from dairy and refined sugars, and largely gluten-free.
Inhabit Queen’s Gardens, the second property of a brand founded on the belief that design should have a positive social impact, joins sister property Inhabit Southwick Street to offer the modern traveler a holistic experience that seeks to instill calm from the moment you enter.
