PROJECTSINCOMMON

Projects in Common is a group of architects and graphic designers with a shared design vision and a dynamic, concept driven, multidisciplinary approach. A diffused practice with offices in London, Milan and Turin, where the four partners work on innovative concepts for retail, residential, workspace, hospitality, temporary design and communication. Together with the typical services of an architecture, interior design and communication office - from preliminary design to site supervision - Projects in Common proposes more experimental projects in tune with the latest trends in contemporary architecture and design, blending different disciplines: architecture, graphics, set design, media, art. An approach in constant evolution, dealing with each project from different angles, always focused on current lifestyles, work habits and clients’ expectations.

Client The New Rathbone Place London, UK Year concept proposal Team Fabrizio Lepore

THE RATHBONE HOTEL IS IN THE HEART OF FITZROVIA, SURROUNDED BY THE ENERGY OF MANY CREATIVE BUSINESSES AND THE HERITAGE OF LITERARY FIGURES LIKE THE WRITERS OF THE BLOOMSBURY GROUP. ART GALLERIES, ADVERTISING AGENCIES, ARCHITECTURAL FIRMS, COOL SHIRT-MAKERS AND TRENDY HAIR-STYLISTS CREATE A REAL BUZZ DURING THE DAY WHILE DOZENS OF RESTAURANTS, PUBS, BARS AND CAFES DRAW CROWDS AT NIGHT. TUCKED AWAY IN A GREAT LOCATION ON RATHBONE STREET, THE RATHBONE PROVIDES COMFORTABLE ACCOMODATIONS BUT AT THE MOMENT MISSES THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE AT THE CENTRE OF THIS “FITZROVIA VIBE”. WE THINK THAT THROUGH A COMPLETE REFURBISHMENT THE HOTEL CAN REINTERPRET ITSELF AND DEVELOP A STRONGER PERSONALITY, MORE CONNECTED TO THE CONTEXT AND APPEALING TO BOTH CURRENT CUSTOMERS AND NEW ONES. IN THE FOLLOWING PAGES WE WILL TRY TO CONVEY THE NEW CONCEPT WE ENVISIONED.


LITERARY BOHEMIAN

CONTEMPORARY CREATIVE

THE CONCEPT FOR THE NEW RATHBONE HOTEL REVOLVES AROUND THE KEY WORDS LITERARY BOHEMIAN AND CONTEMPORARY CREATIVE. THESE INTEND TO SHAPE A PLACE MORE IN TUNE WITH ITS NEIGHBOURHOOD, TRANSCENDING ITS PRIMARY HOTEL FUNCTION AND ATTRACTING THE CROWD OF PEOPLE WORKING AND HANGING AROUND IN FITZROVIA TO ITS NEW AND UNIQUE SOCIAL AREAS. THE HOTEL REFURBISHMENT MAY BE MORE THAN JUST A DESIGN AND FIT-OUT IMPROVEMENT, BUT RATHER THE OCCASION TO GIVE IT A NEW STRONG PERSONALITY AND TO MAKE IT A DESTINATION IN ITSELF. IN AN AREA SATURATED WITH RESTAURANTS AND BARS, THE DEFINITION OF A NEW KIND OF “SOCIAL AREAS” IS CRUCIAL TO SHAPE THE UNIQUE HOTEL IDENTITY AROUND THE WORLD OF BOOKS, MAGAZINES AND PUBLICATIONS MAINLY IN THE FIELDS OF CREATIVITY, LIKE DESIGN, ARCHITECTURE, FASHION, MEDIA, ADVERTISING AND LIFESTYLE.


THE COMMON AREAS WILL BE UNCONVENTIONAL AND MORE INTIMATE THAN IN A TRADITIONAL HOTEL. A“LIBRARY”WILL BE THE MAIN SOCIAL SPACE, WHERE THE BREAKFAST CAN BE ENJOYED WITH THE MORNING NEWSPAPERS, OR WHERE IT IS POSSIBLE TO HAVE DRINK WHILE READING A BOOK BEFORE GOING TO BED. THE HOTEL WILL NOT NEED A RESTAURANT, BUT SPECIAL ROOMS MAY BE RESERVED FOR MEETINGS AND LUNCHES, WITH A DEDICATED CATERING SERVICE FROM A CAREFULLY CHOSEN RESTAURANT NEARBY, GENERATING REVENUES AND OPPORTUNITIES FOR JOINT MARKETING STRATEGIES. THIS WILL OFFER THE BUSINESSES IN THE NEIGHBOURHOOD AN ALTERNATIVE TO TRADITIONAL MEETING ROOMS AND CROWDED RESTAURANTS.


LIKE THE “LIBRARY”, THE LOBBY CAN BE A FOCAL AREA NOT ONLY FOR THE CUSTOMERS, BUT FOR THE ENTIRE CREATIVE COMMUNITY OF FITZROVIA. IT COULD BE A PLACE WHERE IT IS POSSIBLE TO READ AND BUY MAGAZINES AND PUBLICATIONS. THIS AREA CAN BE “LET” TO A SPECIALISED RETAILER, JUST AS IN ANY MUSEUM BOOKSHOP. NOT A TRADITIONAL LOBBY, THEN, BUT A PLACE FULL OF LIFE AND APPEAL THROUGHOUT THE DAY.

HYBRID THE CONCEPT FOR A NEW DEVELOPMENT NEAR COVENT GARDEN INCLUDES A 50/55 ROOM BOUTIQUE HOTEL, A RESTAURANT, A BAR, A PRIVATE MEMBERS’ CLUB, AN ART GALLERY AND A THEATRE. THE PROPOSED BUILDING, A REFURBISHMENT AND EXTENSION OF 3 EXISTING BUILDINGS, IS CONCEIVED AS A VIBRANT ENTERTAINMENT SPACE, PROVIDING A DESTINATION WHERE PEOPLE CAN MEET, DRINK, EAT, WATCH PERFORMANCES AND STAY, ALL WITHIN ONE “HYBRID” BUILDING. ON THE GROUND FLOOR THERE WILL BE A RESTAURANT, A BAR, AND THE ENTRANCES TO THE THEATRE, THE HOTEL AND THE PRIVATESUSPENDED MEMBERS’ CLUB. THIS WILL BE QUITE A COMPLEX SPACE: THE PRESENCE OF THE ACCESSES TO THE VARIOUS FUNCTIONS OF THE BUILDING, WILL GENERATE FLOWS OF DIFFERENT CUSTOMERS, THAT IN SOME CASES MUST NOT INTERSECT. ITS DESIGN AND LAYOUT WILL BE CRUCIAL TO COMMUNICATE THE NATURE OF THE SOFT ENTIRE BUILDING AND TO NAVIGATE PEOPLE THROUGH IT. FLOORS 1 TO 4 WILL BE OCCUPIED BY HOTEL ROOMS. AN OPEN INTERNAL COURTYARD FROM THE FIRST FLOOR UP WILL GIVE LIGHT TO SOME OF THE ROOMS AD HOST A SCULPTURE GALLERY. THE AMBITION FOR A DYNAMIC AND VIBRANT RESTAURANT/BAR SUPPORTED BY AN ORIGINAL AND UNIQUE BOUTIQUE HOTEL EXPERIENCE MAKES IT A PERFECT OCCASION FOR FASHION BRANDING OR FOR AN INTERIOR WITH A VERY SPECIAL CONCEPT DESIGN.

MECHANICAL THE PRIVATE MEMBERS’ CLUB WILL BE LOCATED ON THE FIFTH FLOOR, SET BACK FROM THE FACADE, LEAVING SOME SPACE TO A ROOF TERRACE WITH A SWIMMING POOL. THE CLUB WILL HAVE A BAR, SITTING AND DINING AREAS AND DIRECT ACCESS FROM THE GROUND FLOOR. THE CLUB WILL SUPPORT A HIGH PROFILE CHARITY AND THEREFORE IT WILL HAVE ACCESS LIQUID TO THEIR MEMBERS, PATRONS AND AMBASSADORS’ LIST, RECEIVING AN UNPRECEDENTED MEDIA EXPOSURE. THE THEATRE, WHICH OCCUPIES THE 3 BASEMENT LEVELS IS ENVISAGED AS A FLEXIBLE STRUCTURE WITH REMOVABLE SEATS, LENDING ITSELF TO DIFFERENT USES LIKE A NIGHTCLUB, A SPECIAL EVENT VENUE OR A PERFORMANCE SPACE. IT ALSO INCLUDES A REHEARSAL ROOM ON BASEMENT 3 AND A FOYER WITH A BAR ON BASEMENT 2. IT HAS BEEN CONCEIVED AS A SINGLE ENTITY CREATING A NEW THEATRE AND PERFORMANCE EXPERIENCE WITH VISUAL CONNECTIVITY BETWEEN THE THEATRE, BAR AND RESTAURANT FUNCTIONS. THIS EXPERIENCE MAY OR MAY NOT FORM PART OF THE BRANDING FOR THE HOTEL AND/OR THE PRIVATE MEMBERS’ CLUB, CREATING OPPORTUNITIES FOR INTEGRATED EXPERIENCES, ESPECIALLY BETWEEN THE PRIVATE MEMBERS’ CLUB AND THE THEATRE.

THE MECHANICAL DINER + THE FLUID BAR + THE SOFT HOTEL + THE COSMIC CLUB + THE SUNKEN STAGE


IDENTITY Inserted between a special performance space and a one of a kind private members’ club, the hotel will have a strong personality. Its identity will inevitably be associated with the peculiarity of the entire building and its hybrid nature. The aim is to make it, unique, desirable and iconic.
