Lowry Hotel Completes £5.25m Makeover

By Chesire Today

The Lowry Hotel’s standing as the art hotel of the North of England has been boosted further by the refurbishment of six riverside suites inspired by artworks of the Oldham-born artist Alan Rankle.

Rankle has enjoyed recent high profile solo exhibitions in Copenhagen, Berlin, Milan and London which have confirmed his status as one of the most innovative painters working today.

The project has been delivered by boutique global architecture and interior design practice Arney Fender Katsalidis (AFK), in collaboration with the renowned artist.

AFK has designed six bespoke suites ranging in size from 82 to 92 sq m, each of which correspond to unique abstract artworks by Rankle. The six abstract artworks are reflected within the space through the selected colour schemes of the textiles and furnishings.

Each suite contains an extraordinary over-scaled headboard, curved slightly around the bed, depicting an image of the original artwork. The art has been printed onto the 4m x 2.5m upholstered headboard, which is reflected into two mirrored doors opposite, allowing guests to view the piece from multiple vantage points in the room.

With their refined designs, AFK has created an intimate but glamorous experience for the Lowry Hotel’s guests. Veronica Givone, Associate Director at Arney Fender Katsalidis, said: “What makes these suites so special is the way the paintings, materials and colour schemes of the room intertwine, allowing guests to really feel embraced by the art piece.”

A comprehensive makeover of the 165-room hotel has taken place since September 2014.
