Cruise Ship Interiors Design Expo Europe Association Partner the NEWH UK Chapter will be holding their TopID event in Roca London Gallery on the 31st March. Roca is a proud sponsor of the event, and the Zaha Hadid designed gallery is the perfect venue to host the project presentations and an evening of networking. This year NEWH was delighted to recognise the contributions of three leading design practices, Sparcstudio Designers, THDP Ltd and AD Associates within the UK hospitality sector.
NEWH is delighted to be awarding the TopID accolade to Sparcstudio Designers, a practice that focuses on designing spa, hotel and wellness environments. Sparcstudio recently designed the Sopwell Cottonmill Spa in Hertfordshire. The project involved a total refurbishment of the existing spa areas and a large glazed three-story extension. The brief for the project was to create a “world class destination spa”, with a natural bare foot luxury feel and dedicated private member areas. The building features an in-out hydro-pool which links to a beautiful award-winning spa garden and extensive thermal suite complete with a host of relaxation experiences.
THDP Design will also be receiving the 2022 TopID Award, and the practice has recently designed the Hilton Frankfurt City Centre. The hotel is designed with the global business traveller in mind, drawing inspiration from Frankfurt’s position as a global financial hub. Frankfurt is often referred to as the Mini Manhattan and so THDP drew inspiration from the other economic hub, New York. The Hudson Yards Bar resembles a typical New York bar with brass gantry shelving, custom counter lights and brass foot stops. In addition, THDP has also been the creator behind the Pigeon Post Bar & Eatery at Hilton Cologne.
AD Associates is another recipient of the TopID Award for 2022. The studio has a large marine project list, and has recently worked with SAGA Cruises, designing the living room and forward suites on board Spirit of Adventure. The living room combines relaxation and refined luxury, desiring to provide the ultimate setting for social gatherings at the centre of the ship. The suites are all inspired by the ship’s name and use a strong palette with vivid colours found in the carpets, tiles and fabrics selected.
There will be plenty of exciting NEWH events throughout 2022 to get involved in, which are featured on the flyer, such as the 20th Anniversary Party which will be held in June!
NEWH will be sponsoring Cruise Conversations Live 2022, a leading conference held at Cruise Ship Interiors Design Expo Europe. Find out more about this action-packed event and sign up here.
