Sheraton Hotels & Resorts
Alex Kravetz Design undertook a complex renovation of Sheraton Warsaw’s 350 guestrooms and suites. Whilst drawing on the property’s heritage and also prestigious location, the design language is luxury cosmopolitan with an aspirational residential feel.
Sheraton Warsaw appeals to business leaders, high ranking diplomats and leisure travellers. Our design philosophy was driven by the spacious proportions of the rooms and therefore the necessity to provide unique design solutions to major millwork and furniture pieces in the room. We therefore designed custom pieces, which created key focal points in the room. The two most important pieces which translated this vision were the headboard and TV unit designs.
The headboard provides new lighting and outlet sockets for guests, thereby upgrading to the latest standards, whilst making use of the existing electrical points within the room. The disrupted, geometric pattern to the mirror panels and use of textured faux leather creates instant impact.
The TV unit provides a wall mounted solution for the room with additional ambient lighting. The freestanding minibar unit is styled to the new brand guidelines, incorporating a signature sculptural artwork.
The seating groups are tailored to the room layout, providing comfort and a residential feel to the room. A multi-purpose table enables guests to work in a relaxed manner at the sofa or dine at the armchair.
When comprised together, the high end finishes present a layered sensual approach to the interior. Fresh, neutral fabric schemes create harmony, combining shades of soft creams and blues.
The custom carpet design reflects the geometric shapes of the local patterns. These patterns take reference from the subtle cross motif, making a linkage to the hotel’s location on Three Crosses Square, Plac Trzech Krzyży. Polish folk paper cut-outs and patterns have also been incorporated, creating a connection with the local culture. An example of this is the Lowickie pattern which is from the Masovia/Mazowszeregion where Warsaw is situated, further making reference to the hotel’s locality.
The Sheraton Warsaw Club Lounge was also refurbished by AKD, with the warm tones and finishes in the guestrooms following through into this area. Residential styled furniture and a dynamic carpet design provided an impactful refresh to the space.
