5* Luxury

Opening 21 November 2012, Sleep has built its very own hotel. We have simply built the walls, floors and doors the rest is up to the interior designers and architects who have booked their rooms. Take a tour round each of the rooms to experience their latest design ideas and see how they interpret the design brief written by Khirstie Gunn-Myles – KGM, Conrad Smith – ReardonSmith Architects and Javier Hortal – Mandarin Oriental Group to design a 5* luxury guestroom in 23sqm.
