London’s Luxury Boundary Hotel
The stylish Boundary Hotel in London’s fashionable Shoreditch quarter is a celebration of fine art and impeccable taste for the sophisticated jet-setter. This luxury hotel has twelve elegant quirky bedrooms, which are spread across two floors, each inspired by a legendary designer or design movement, from Young British to Bauhaus, Eileen Gray to Le Corbusier.
Above, five duplex suites range from Modern Dickensian to Modern Chinoiserie, featuring private outdoor balconies and impressive urban views. The works of over 50 artists, photographers, graphic designers and print makers are distributed throughout these rooms and suites as well as in the rest of the building – many of them sourced directly from the collections of Terence and Vicki Conran.
But the Boundary is not all about art and aesthetics – environmental awareness has also played a central role in the construction of the hotel, from locally-sourced materials to the insulation of the 120-year-old building. The hotel’s most significant green features are its boreholes, drilled beneath the Boundary restaurant itself. One of the holes collects water and energy from the artesian reservoir, while the other returns the resource after it has been used to operate the air conditioning and refrigeration systems – fine living at minimal ecological cost.
In-room standard luxuries include flat-screen LCD TVs, Wi-Fi, handmade UK super King Savoir beds and high-quality English bedding. Bathrooms are individually styled too – some equipped with modern Japanese TOTO combined bidet lavatories, all include REN skincare products, heated floors and power showers. Additionally, many bespoke pieces of furniture were created for the hotel.
The hotel’s main restaurant, the Boundary Restaurant, pays homage to classic recipes from England and France, while the rooftop grill-restaurant and bar with its open fireplace is set in the midst of a dramatic garden by Nicola Lesbirel with panoramic views over London.
