Since 2012, they have won quite a few awards such as Build & Design Awards 2021, NEWH Top ID AWARDS 2021, British Homes Awards 2020, now leaving a highlight for our blog they were the winners of the Restaurant & Bar Design Awards 2020.
Goddard Littlefair was chosen by London and Regional, the owners of Iconic Luxury Hotels, to design The Mayfair Townhouse, the brand’s sixth luxury hotel. The boutique hotel features seven Georgian listed buildings within its structure of 15 townhouses and will welcome visitors seeking a discrete London address. It is located in the heart of Mayfair on Half Moon Street, near London’s Green Park. Goddard Littlefair set out to restore the townhouse interiors, weaving them together to re-create the Georgian essence.
Goddard Littlefair studied the personalities of the area’s first residents and drew inspiration from people such as Oscar Wilde and his contemporaries. The aptly called Dandy Bar is located close to the reception area on the ground level, in the centre of the hotel.
The design entices visitors to a glittering, softly lighted place where they can take refuge from the bustling Mayfair streets.
The furniture in this room, as well as the rest of the hotel, is unique to the project, with the Goddard Littlefair team curating each item to rigorous standards. The bar’s seating is made out of patterned velvets and leathers, with marble, metal, and high-gloss woods as the base finishes.
A rich colour palette and flashes of detail have been used to depict hints of extrovert personalities that lie beneath the architecture, discreetly expressing the dandy’s adventurous mischief.
The River Restaurant opened in Manchester’s Lowry in 2019. Goddard Littlefair‘s freshly re-imagined landmark riverside site has not just unique, elegant, and luxury décor, but also superb locally produced, seasonal food.
The multi-faceted city of Manchester served as inspiration for the makeover of this iconic Manchester hotspot. The geometric ideas come from the city’s well-known bridge across the River Irwell, while the fun, soft-hued colour palette is inspired by the city’s colourful musical legacy.
The room’s focal point is a big marble top bar; the bar‘s slatted screen design allows pieces of it to be closed off as needed, making a private event even more spectacular. The custom glass lighting adds a finishing touch that not only adds warmth but also vibrancy. At the Restaurant & Bar Awards in 2020, River Restaurant was named ‘Best Hotel Restaurant.’
