Cannizaro House

Cannizaro House hotel dates back to the early 19th Century and is situated in the beautiful Cannizaro Park on the West side of Wimbledon Common. The Hotel was purchased by Hotel du Vin in 2014 and Curious was given the task to refurbish the lovely interiors in line with the Hotel du Vin brand but allowing for specific details unique to the historic fabric of the property.

All bedrooms were refurbished in Hotel du Vin style with a special twist for the main suites and two unique new suites in former meeting rooms. The Bar, Lounge and Bistro were completely refurbished with new furniture, finishes and lighting as was the Orangery which was designed to reflect the external finish of the park as much as the internal finish of the hotel.

The most structural change was in the reception which was opened up into a larger space allowing for a better feel on first arrival to the hotel and allowing space for people to come and go without causing congestion.

Lastly all meeting rooms had a new scheme to bring them in line with the rest of the hotel and the corridors were also re-carpeted and painted with new locally influenced historic artwork finishing off the theme of the refurbishment.

Glasgow is Scotland’s largest city and is renowned for its culture, style and the friendliness of its people.

Down in the softly lit, vaulted basement, you can enjoy a fine dining experience in the sleek, comfortable brasserie. You can even enjoy a front row seat at the chefs table with full view of our specialist kitchen, watching incredible chefs at work.

Bericote Offices

Bericote Properties decided to establish a London office that would be both a work place for their
London staff and staff travelling from Head Office and an environment that they could bring clients
in for formal and informal meetings and social gatherings.

Set in Mayfair the architecture of the building was beautiful if a little complicated so we created
an interior that separated work place and social spaces included a large meeting room and open kitchen separated by a large sliding shutter door. As Bericote build large sheds for warehouses the influence on the interiors was from things you might find in the finished warehouses and the materials used to build these warehouses. It is a unique multi-functional space that reflects the business and personality of the Bericote company.

KSL Offices

We redesigned KSL’s office at Grosvenor Gardens in London giving it a more edgy look within the structure of the existing space. Bold joinery pieces and strong floor finishes provide a stand out design but with a personal feel.

Alinea Offices

Working closely with Alinea, we redesigned the interior of their offices on Cannon Street in the centre of London. Working within the limitations of the changes that were possible to the existing office, we explored a variety of ideas and concepts and created a unique office environment for staff and clients alike.

Hotel du Vin, One Devonshire Gardens Glasgow

An iconic 49 bed luxury boutique hotel and considered one of Scotland’s finest luxury hotels, One Devonshire Gardens is the hotel of choice for most of the world’s A list celebrities when visiting Glasgow.

Curious gave this famous five star hotel the full Hotel du Vin treatment, following its acquisition.  The £2 million transformation runs across a collection of five, glorious, knocked through terraced villas in line with Du Vin’s portfolio of quirky conversions. Our greatest challenge was maintaining the luxurious residential feel that made One Devonshire famous, whilst introducing the more contemporary style of the Hotel du Vin brand.

The hotel now boasts a total of 49 bedrooms and suites that remains sympathetic to the charm and elegant character for which One Devonshire Gardens is internationally renowned. Further additions include a brand new bar with perhaps the greatest concession to modernity being the luxurious new spa in House 5. One Devonshire Gardens is a Hotel du Vin – with a little bit more.

Circo, Abu Dhabi

The National Corporation for Tourism & Hotels in Abu Dhabi has an agreement with New York’s famous Maccioni Restaurant Group for the regional licensing rights of their restaurant brands Le Cirque and Circo. The first venture was to introduce a new Circo restaurant within the Intercontinental Hotel in Abu Dhabi. The Client brief was to design a restaurant that emanates the essence of the Circo brand – upscale Italian cuisine influenced by the Tuscan region and served in a lively, sophisticated setting reminiscent of the old-style European circus tents which inspired the restaurant’s name. Delighted with our design interpretation and positive comments received from partners and guests, we have since been awarded the contract to design a new Le Cirque in Dubai.
