Set in the Paddington neighborhood of West London lies The Pilgrm Hotel, a series of Victorian buildings split over various wings and sections with lots of little stairways and secret rooms. Before The Pilgrm stood as it does today — a celebration of its landmark heritage with sustainable design top-of-mind — it was rescued by Sheffield, UK-based design firm 93ft. Headed up by Tim Hubbard, the team including Amber Addison, Jim Butterell and Sam Skalli took care of the entire interior architecture and spacial planning of the hotel’s restoration, as well as designing and custom-making bespoke furniture. “We love amazing materials,” Tim shares. “We believe that great materials are at the heart of great design and therefore beautiful interiors. The reclamation and reuse of architectural salvage is prominent in all of our projects. It’s one of our particular trademarks that has a deeper meaning than just pleasing aesthetics. For us, design and making furniture gives us the chance to create legacy pieces and places.” That’s why the 18-month transformation of The Pilgrm was a perfect fit for the firm. From start to finish, the hotel was a strong collaborative approach with the hotel owners and 93ft. In keeping with their ideology, what 93ft put back into the building had substantial heart and a story worthy of the surroundings. They worked with materials that will last another 100-plus years. “The materials we?ve chosen and the way in which we?ve handled them set a precedent to give guests an understanding of a sense of quality and understated luxe. We have designed and made legacy pieces for The Pilgrm that have the benefit of heritage, but also the style and elegance to transcend trend,” Tim says. “We designed over a series of wings and multi-levels which had a complicated layout, which meant we honed in on reading the changing architectural landscape from street level upwards.”
Part of this involved redesigning key features, like the ground-floor shop front which originally was hard to read from the street, lost in the everyday bustle of the neighborhood. “We wanted to give the impression that the custom-built shop front has been there since day one with just the right amounts of heritage grandeur, set off with hand glazed tiles in cobalt blue and gold finishing in all the right places,” Tim notes. The colors of the hotel will welcome thousands of guests over time, with hues and tones to soothe and restore. 93ft chose heritage colors that are reflective of the history of the building yet embrace its new d...
