Fitzwilliam Hotel, Belfast
Located adjacent to the magnificent Opera House in the heart of Belfast, the sister hotel to the original Fitzwilliam in Dublin, Project Orange were appointed to work on the interior fit-out of this five star, 132 bedroom hotel.
Bringing a slice of the ‘Manhattan Manor House’ to Belfast, our designs bring together simple, bold colours, warm oak panelling, quirky fabrics and luxurious marbles to create a restrained yet glamorous setting.
The ground floor lobby draws on the inglenook as a central element of the manor house to create a key zone to the hotel. With traditional oak settles and library shelves to peruse either side of the contemporary fireplace, guests will be able to sit back and relax. Stepping away from the inglenook, the double height reception area unfolds with floor to ceiling glazing throughout and hints of luxurious marbles, bronze and oak detailing.
The first floor restaurant plays on the theme of the traditional "oak room" becoming a series of three dining carriages all lined in oak throughout. Booth and banquette seating with playful mobile privacy screens create a rich layering to the space and on one side overlook the double height lobby.
