Holland Harvey has designed Inhabit Queen's Gardens in London, United Kingdom.

This project is a new wellness focused hotel led by principles of adaptive reuse and wellbeing for Inhabit's second hotel in Bayswater.

Inhabit Queen’s Gardens repurposes a crescent of Grade II mid-19th-century Victorian townhouses to create an intimate and welcoming building that brings the public spaces to the forefront of the scheme by opening up the ground floor to improve circulation for front and back of house areas. The project seeks to be an exemplar of adaptive reuse in the hospitality industry.

"At Inhabit, we have built a network of net-positive brands and suppliers. Together with Holland Harvey, we sought out artisans and smaller enterprises, many of which work with sustainable or upcycled materials and most of which did not work on larger scale hospitality projects." said client Nadira Lalji. "By showcasing new players and experimenting with new materials, we hope not only to model responsible hospitality practices but also to inspire other hoteliers to follow suit."


This project has been shortlisted in the hotel and short-stay interiors category of Dezeen Awards 2022.
