Ruby Lucy’s interior design is inspired by the Southbank’s bustling fairs and markets, entertainment and theatre scene, with a carnival theme running throughout the hotel. As this is Ruby Hotels’ first project in the UK, their brief was to highlight everything the hotel brand has to offer in this jewel box of a hotel. Falling in love with the location of the quirky Lower Marsh, it was important for Ruby Hotels to create a space that would reflect the unique character of the neighbourhood whilst adding their own creative spin.

Ruby Hotels have been shortlisted for Hotel Under 200 Rooms – Europe Award in The International Hotel and Property Awards 2020.

What are the key themes to consider when approaching design?
