At the IQ Nottingham site we were brought on to do the interior design for a new building of 215 rooms next to an existing IQ building.
As inspiration for the design we looked at the history of the area and in particular the closeness of the famous Lace Market area.
This Lace Market is one of the oldest areas in the city and has over one thousand years of history.
Today it makes up part of the Creative Quarter and each of these districts have their own character, merging history with independent culture that is at the heart of modern Nottingham.
The final design responds to this and builds on the local character of lace and bicycle making, to create something that uniquely fits in the area and draws from its history.
