New York-based design studio Grzywinski + Pons does it again with their interior design magic touch with Locke Living’s latest hotel, the
The Whitworth Locke is composed of 160 studios and one-bedroom suites, a bar, cafe, lounge, and co-working space, all housed inside a 19th century cotton mill made up of three linked buildings. Grzywinski+Pons executed a complete gut renovation but still retained the solid bones and beauty of the Victorian structure. A tonal color palette of muted pinks, greens, blues and yellows add a contemporary, inviting warmth to various spaces.
Natural light streams through the glass atrium that houses The Conservatory, the pop-up bar that brings together guests from the Whitworth Locke’s three buildings with a menu of hand-selected wines, craft beer and inventive cocktails.
Throughout the public spaces and guest rooms of the hotel, you can find quiet vignettes like the one above that speak to Grzywinski+Pon’s signature design style of creating intimate and understatedly elegant spaces.
