THE TRAVEL FILES: EDEN LOCK HOTEL IN EDINBURGH

Eden Locke is a 72 room hotel located in Edinburgh’s New Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site characterised by properties of the Georgian era. The hotel has been designed by New York City based practice Grzywinski+Pons. “The project was a complete gut renovation and comprehensive fit out of an existing hybridized structure. We took an 18th Century Georgian mansion and its 20th Century extension down to their respective bones and created the hotel from there.” Throughout the building a palette of warm materials and textures was crafted, powdery tones and soft lighting that make the most of the inimitably breathtaking natural light in Scotland. The end result is a design-led aparthotel for those who want to challenge the status quo, and experience the unique and authentic. Designed for travellers for whom a bed and shower in a shoebox isn’t enough, Eden Locke immerses you in its neighbourhood’s culture through spaces that connect you to a community of like-minded locals and travellers.

The designers: “Our intention was that the tension between the severe and stony building fabric and the verdant interior would foster measured incongruity where one exalts the other. We also designed much of the furniture and all of the joinery and employed bent wood, cane, wicker and terra cotta in equal measure with brass, stone, cementitious cladding and steel, all of which sits amongst ample vegetation. At the thresholds into the building we paid special attention as to how to architecturally transition between both the spaces and the eras. Glazed fanlights and wrought iron are framed by glass, timber and stone vestibules. Vignettes of the space within are shown to the street and the exterior ashlar and interior elevations form a studied composition on the facade.”

This stunning home is only an hour north of Sydney but it feels a world away.
