Fairmont St Andrews, Scotland

The Fairmont St Andrews has recently been renovated with a fresh and stylish new interior design by RPW Design. The guest rooms, suites and public areas including entrance, reception, lobby, bar and impressive atrium which also houses the main hotel restaurant have all had a dramatic face lift with deep sophisticated tones echoing the local setting and landscape character. The Client, Kennedy Wilson and operator  was open minded and supportive of the design from the start with the finished product being a testament to the project team collaboration including Project Managers Fitzsimons and local Architects Hurd Rolland.

The guest experience has significantly changed with a moody and thoughtful interior embracing rich materials, furniture and artwork. The lighting responds by accenting the interesting features and concealing lighting to expose interest, depth and drama from the hotel entry through to the restaurant atrium. Within the 50M atrium, the key feature is the Zephyr Chandelier by George Singer (meaning soft gentle breeze) which fills the space with soft kinetics and shadows created by layers of lighting from both above and below. Colour has been utilized for parties and events as the Atrium doubles as a huge event space when not used as Restaurant and Lounge.
