Crosswater & C.P. Hart Partnership for Bathrooms at The Ampersand Hotel, South Kensington
As the design brief called for a consistent art-deco design throughout the hotel, the Contracts team chose quality branded bathroom products from Crosswater, Duravit and Bette. All the brassware and shower valves were chosen from the Crosswater portfolio. Crosswater worked with C.P. Hart to design bespoke brassware solutions; this included bespoke tap spouts and engraved shower plates to make it simple for guests to operate the luxury showers.
Ian Dutch, Head of Contracts Hotels comments; "Securing a prestigious contract like the 111 rooms and suites at The Ampersand was an exciting project for C.P. Hart Bathrooms, but involved a complex refurbishment where design decisions had to be made quickly to accommodate the hotel’s schedule of works. We drew upon suppliers that we were confident could supply high quality products that outperformed expectations and worked with our budget and installation schedule. The bathrooms in the hotel have to deliver both longevity and a luxurious experience, so the back up of comprehensive product guarantees and efficient after sales service were key influencers when it came to specifying products for the scheme."
