Hilton Hotel, Glasgow, Scotland


The Hilton Glasgow Hotel has undergone a refurbishment of its ground floor public areas including reception, double height lobby lounge, lobby bar and two inter joining restaurants.

dpa worked closely with interior designers Central Design Studios to refresh a tired interior space from the early 90’s. The interiors have been transformed with quality materials and sophisticated detailing and carefully integrated lighting to enhance the spaces both during the day and at night.

The refurbishment posed a particularly difficult challenge with a very tight budget so dpa worked with Hiltons engineering team to retain and upgrade the old lighting control system so that funds could be used for quality new lighting.
