Scott Brownrigg Interior Design in Jersey

Scott Brownrigg Interior Design has provided an impressive interior design scheme for the brand new Radisson SAS Waterfront Hotel in St. Helier, Jersey.  Sitting on the promenade, the Radisson SAS Waterfront Hotel, Jersey boasts an exclusive view over the stunning Elizabeth Marina, Elizabeth Castle and St Aubin’s Bay. Within close proximity of the financial district and the bustling town centre, the hotel’s first class hospitality, amenities and unrivalled location are easily accessible via 34 of the UK’s regional airports, within 90 mins of take off.  The initial brief from the client was the requirement for a light and airy environment. The views from the restaurant and bar are stunning which inspired Scott Brownrigg to ensure that the interior design references did not distract from the beautiful views.  

Scott Brownrigg worked in sympathy and harmony with the surrounding area, using colour and textural references to develop the interior finishes enabling the spaces to be unfettered, buoyant, peaceful and calm.  They created a colour scheme around simple colour palettes, resulting in a clean contemporary look. The client also requested colourful carpets. Scott Brownrigg Interior Design fulfilled this perfectly by using references to the sea, such as ripples on the water with stylised seaweed, stripes on canvas deck chairs and used inspiration based on a sea horse. The predominate veneer in the hotel is a light bleached effect engineered wood from Alpi.

Gary de Garis, commented: “It was a pleasure to work with Scott Brownrigg, as they were very helpful and always went that extra distance. They enhanced the area and architectural design to give it “sizzle”. Scott Brownrigg took into account all the facilities required by a hotel of this type along with the requirements of the general public” The views are paramount to the client. This manifests itself in the feeling that as you enter the reception you are drawn through the space making it feel larger than it is and are ‘wowed’ by the enormous fish tank. 

The dining area accentuates the ‘sea horse’ inspiration for the carpet with striking smoke grey/blue colours picked out in the chairs, tables and walls and with elegant smoke grey glass sliding doors, dividing the room into sections. This leads on to the exterior terrace where there is a brighter and more dramatic feel using bright blue and orange polypropylene chairs. The ‘sea’ inspired carpet, which is continued in the hotels 195 bedrooms and suites, has ripples of the sea in beige, with waves of maroon and blue. The long corridors have been enhanced with a bold ‘squiggle’ of dark red seaweed influenced pattern. 

The bedrooms and suites are equipped with high quality amenities such as flat screen LCD televisions, free high speed internet access and individual climate control. Scott Brownrigg detailed the concrete pod bathrooms.  The hotel boasts five elegant meeting rooms – catering for over 400 theatre style and up to 280 banqueting. The versatile space can also be divided into smaller meetings and events space that benefit from a break out area situated in an interestingly shaped curved glazed area.

The breathtaking boardroom on the 5th floor of the hotel prides itself in its large curved window spaning the width of the room and providing spectacular views across the marina and coastal line . The carpet in the conference areas is where the ‘stripes on canvas deck chairs’ influence is brought in, in a variety of blues, browns and beiges which coordinate with the colours throughout, including the acoustic clad walls.  With the exception of one, all the artwork in the hotel was produced on the Island by local artists: Dixie-Lee Whiteman, George Kowzan, Gabrielle Radiquet, David Henley, Robert Tilling and the Frenchman Pierre Doutreleau.
