Ham Yard Hotel Visit
Last week, the Hospitality Sector team from Plan A had the incredible opportunity to visit the Ham Yard Hotel in the heart of Soho, London. It was truly a one-of-a-kind experience! This visit offered a fascinating glimpse into the world of hospitality design and operations.
Our tour was expertly guided by a member of the hotel operation team, who took us through the front-of-house areas, hotel rooms, and serviced apartments. What truly set this visit apart was the insider perspective provided by our colleague, Jonathan Leah, who had the privilege of working on this remarkable project as an architect.
One of the most intriguing aspects of the Ham Yard Hotel project was the unconventional collaboration between architecture and interior design. Unlike many projects where these two disciplines work closely from the outset, here the interior designer joined the project after the architectural design had already taken shape. Despite this unique approach the result is a space that beautifully marries form and function.
The Ham Yard Hotel boasts a truly distinctive aesthetic that sets it apart from the crowd. From the moment you step inside, you’re enveloped in an atmosphere that seamlessly combines luxury, comfort, and a sense of artistic flair. The design progression that Jonathan shared with us shed light on the meticulous attention to detail and the careful curation of every element in this space.
We left feeling inspired and with a deeper appreciation for the thought and creativity that goes into creating exceptional hospitality experiences. It’s a testament to how innovative thinking and collaboration can lead to extraordinary outcomes in the world of design and hospitality.
A big thank you to the Ham Yard Hotel team for hosting us and to Jonathan for providing us with valuable insights into this outstanding project. If you’re ever in Soho, we highly recommend a visit to experience this unique blend of design and hospitality first hand.
