Hilton Istanbul Bomonti
Design inspiration was drawn from the international fashion house, Ralph Lauren.
2014 Winner Best Upscale Hotel (International)
The Bomonti Beer Factory opened its gates in 1894, marking the introduction of modern beer production in Turkey. This momentous occasion led to the birth of the new Hilton Istanbul Bomonti, providing a stunning view over the whole city of Istanbul.
The concept boasts a masculine palette of blues and greys, fused with a subtle Art Deco finish expressed through rich colours and bold geometric shapes, the perfect complement to the intricate exterior architecture.
Drama and warmth
The Lobby and Public spaces feature plaster sculptured surfaces, classic columns and dramatic high ceilings that add a sense of grandeur but generally have a neutral wall palate of painted surfaces, allowing the architecture to shine. For the floor, a light limestone was used with Claris grey marble circular patterns. Due to the scale of the public spaces it was important to maintain a sense of warmth and comfort and so furniture and accessories were chosen for their high-end residential feel.
Art deco dining
Staying close to the Art Deco period, the mirror panelled Globe Restaurant shows elements of inspiration taken from Istanbul itself. The Globe’s design is influenced by a long history of trade from across the world, just as Istanbul has experienced sitting on the axis where two continents meet.
Styled with a classic and masculine feel The Grand Bar features opulent velvets, accent piping details, and high-back, winged chairs with deep buttoning. Low lighting and a snug at the back of the bar adds ambiance and privacy and a Cognac display framed in reflected light adds the finishing touch.
Cool greys and sculptural walls
The guestrooms reference Ralph Lauren in cool greys, with masculine and art deco carpet patterns, and lighting selections. Wood finishes throughout are generally walnut mid-tone adding warmth to the rooms. The bathroom is designed to be a highlight in terms of appointment and colours. Black Nero Marquina marbles are used on the walls with the floor being a brown grey marble. Above the bathtub is a specific Turkish ceramic moulded tile to give impact as a sculptural wall.
Warm, masculine finishes
The guestrooms, Eforea Spa and reception are all given a similar executive edge, using the same powerful colour theme which runs throughout, with walnut wood finishes and rich timbers implemented to inject warmth and earthy tones.
Harmonious interior and exterior
A bespoke architectural motif that occurs throughout the hotel can again be found as a backdrop and feature sculptural wall in the indoor pool providing a continuous relationship between the exterior and interior architecture of the hotel.
