Luxury liner look at Belfast’s Titanic Hotel
KäHRS Oak Chevron has been chosen to reflect marine’s heyday at the new Titanic Hotel in Belfast. Formerly the headquarter building for the legendary Harland and Wolff shipbuilders, the new boutique hotel is said to pay homage to the site’s heritage, with an authentic ‘titanic’ scheme designed by Dublin-based ADI Studio. All flooring was supplied by CECO Products.
Located at the heart of Titanic Quarter, the reportedly stunning Grade B listed building dates back to 1889; as home to the Titanic Hotel, it will include 119 luxury bedrooms with views across the waterfront. ADI’s Art Deco-inspired interior design celebrates the story of H&W’s industrial shipbuilding heritage, and is said to create an exciting experience for every guest.
The project has received funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund under a new enterprise scheme, which will support the restoration of the Drawing Offices for commercial use. Kährs Chevron will feature within the two iconic Drawing Offices, reportedly reflecting the style of the original timber floors used on board the shipbuilder’s luxury liners.
“Kährs Chevron is a great example of modern materials influenced by historical aesthetics, which the hotel has in abundance. It’s an exquisite bevelled parquet finish – rich toned and oiled - with all the benefits of a modern plank construction,” explained Maria Rice, Director at ADI Studio.
Kährs Chevron Collection includes four designs, in white, grey, light brown and dark brown, with matching frameboards. The Collection received the ‘Best Flooring’ Award in the prestigious FX International Interior Design Awards 2016.
