The Hoxton, Charlottenburg, Berlin, to open in May 2023
The Hoxton will make its German debut on 8th May putting down its Teutonic roots in the city of Bauhaus, Biergarten and Berghain.
Set to open its doors alongside the distinctive Stucco facades of West Berlin, The Hoxton, Charlottenburg will draw stylistic inspiration from the neighbourhood for the design of its 234 bedrooms and public spaces, from the elegant Art Deco motifs of the Golden Twenties to the raw materialism of the Brutalist movement. Bringing something entirely new to the capital’s foodie scene, Tandoor Chop House will be serving up spice-filled feasts and natural wines, while casual coffees and light snacks are the order of the day at the adjoining coffee bar. An expansive lobby dotted with vintage furniture, a secluded winter garden and The Apartment, the hotel’s 1920s parlour-inspired meeting and events space, complete the scene for Berlin’s coolest new hangout. Auf geht’s!
Berlin’s architectural imprint is as layered and complex as the city itself, and Charlottenburg is no exception. The elegance of classical turn-of-the-century residences is set against the rough textures and severe silhouettes of Brutalism and this thread is woven throughout the interior design of The Hoxton, Charlottenburg. Ennismore’s inhouse design studio, AIME Studios, has crafted an homage to the theatricality of the German capital’s golden era framed against an unrefined, textural backdrop throughout the public spaces; blue and green tones inform the colour palette of the open-house lobby, which is dotted with mid-century furniture sourced from Northern Europe, bespoke rugs and referential Bauhaus artwork. In the reception area, the pink, tiered concrete-effect front desk perfectly contrasts a space which is otherwise defined by exaggerated cornicing, ornate Art Deco-inspired lighting and emerald-green tiles. Distressed timber flooring transitions to shell-patterned mosaic tiles in the corner coffee bar, adding to the glamour of the elegantly scalloped bar with green marble countertop and the curved feature windows that flood the space with light. The hotel’s restaurant, Tandoor Chop House, weaves natural pigments, furniture and artwork influenced by Northern India into its aesthetic, the warmth of which is complemented by an elevated copper and timber-framed open kitchen, comfy banquettes and a striking central sculpture all set against rough lime wash plaster walls.
The 234 bedrooms have been designed by AIME Studios and come in five categories: Shoebox, Cosy, Roomy, Biggy and Biggy Up. Inspired by the classical structures which inform the neighbourhood’s architectural landscape, each room is defined by Art Nouveau forms and expressive design details. A muted colour palette of desaturated pinks and greens creates a sophisticated backdrop to vintage-inspired furniture and scalloped headboards, with the scallop motif recurring in striking rug patterns and elegant glass wall lights. Wall panelling and wooden herringbone flooring provide a structural counterpoint to the soft fluidity of the rooms, and this juxtaposition extends to the bathroom design where exposed metal shelving is set against ornate patterned tiles and timber moulding.
Pulling up a chair to the neighbourhood’s reenergized food scene, The Hoxton, Charlottenburg is bringing a fresh new concept to the city with Tandoor Chop House, a bold meeting of North Indian communal dining culture and the classic British chop house. An adjoining corner coffee bar opens out onto the street and invites guests to pull up a stool next to the oversized statement windows for the ultimate in neighbourhood people watching. Signature Hox dishes will be served up In the lobby, which also features a wraparound bar that circles round to an intimate winter garden, the perfect spot to cosy up next to the Delft-inspired tiled fireplace as the evenings draw in.
The Apartment, The Hoxton’s signature hybrid meeting and events concept, will be located on the hotel’s seventh floor, featuring three flexible private rooms centred around a communal pantry. Drawing aesthetic cues from iconic expressionist dancer Mary Wigman’s inimitable style, The Apartment is reminiscent of a 1920s parlour charmingly set within the eaves of the building. Vintage-inspired soft furnishings and antique lamps provide cosy, homey vibes, while fluid lines and a shot of chintz add a subtle femininity to the space.
West Berlin’s new neighbourhood hangout is set in the heart of buzzing Charlottenburg, surrounded by eclectic cafes and destination restaurants, all within walking distance of the veritable collector’s heaven of Suarezstraße, home to countless specialist vintage and antique stores. Berlin’s renowned shopping avenue Kurfürstendamm, commonly known as Ku’Damm, is right around the corner, and culture vultures will be right in the thick of it with world-class design museums, art galleries and exhibition spaces including C/O Berlin just a short stroll away.
