Scott Tallon Walker

Hotel & Leisure


Hotel and leisure projects provide the opportunity to combine our skills in architecture and urban design with our extensive experience in providing innovative interior designs.

Each building design is developed in response to the specific nature of the site and to create highly flexible spaces and uplifting interiors to suit the needs and budgets of our clients within the hospitality and leisure industry. The specific design of each project is carefully considered in a response that transcends fashion and aims to produce a hotel experience that will last the test of time.

The hotels in Dublin’s Financial Services Centre and Cork’s Lapps Quay both relate to the quays and have had a spin-off regenerative effect on their respective cities. The new Point Village Hotel, 'The Gibson' is the centre-piece of the new Point Square and will assist in the regeneration of the North Dublin Docklands area.

Hotel commissions provide an ideal platform for Scott Tallon Walker Architects to explore our interest in the relationship between Art and Architecture. Our practice's hotel designs have included many site-specific artworks such as Patrick Scott’s 'Golden Balls' installation in the atrium of the Clarion, Lapps Quay, Cork.

The recent Clarion Hotel projects involved a bespoke building design with an integrated interior fit out, custom built furniture and fittings, and the inclusion and procurement of suitable artwork. For each new project our practice gathers and evaluates extensive research and benchmarking to consolidate the best ideas from contemporary hotel design around the world. Each project builds on the collective experience of the greater practice. Design assumptions are viewed afresh and new innovative ideas are brought to the design of both the public and guest realms.

Every scheme is based on sound and experience-driven design principles and is developed in close collaboration with the client to always provide an innovative and bespoke solution, in an always evolving and adaptive industry.
