A new hotel opens its doors in aberdeen
A brand new city centre hotel with a difference opened to the public last week.
The 40-bedroom Bauhaus hotel and Yatai Japanese kitchen, the brainchild of local businessman Nick Garrett, is situated in Langstane Place, while poignantly, the inspiration who was behind the design of the concept was architect Bob Fitzgerald, who sadly passed away earlier this month. I worked with Bob and Nick on the artwork for the walls and have supplied around 80 canvasses and acrylic displays in sizes from 400×400 to 2 metres and larger done in canvasses split into sections. Some of this has been from artwork we created in Photoshop and Illustrator.
This is one of many jobs where I worked closely with Bob, who has been a friend for over 25 years. Click here to see some of Bob’s projects.
To learn more about Bauhaus, go to their website here. I have taken the photographs while the building was in progress but now that it is open, I will be taking more shots of the hotel including Yatai and the two bars, and I will post them in the Blog next week. Bauhaus is a unique concept: –
As general manager Sylvia Simpson explains, the bauhaus offers something unique at affordable prices.
“the five levels above the ground are each colour co-ordinated in yellow, red, blue, grey and black, an effect that continues through to the exterior lighting which results in a spectacular appearance at night.
“we are also absolutely delighted to have persuaded renowned chef John Jones to relocate the extremely popular Yatai Japanese kitchen to within the hotel complex right in the heart of the city and of course the restaurant, now double the capacity compared to its previous location, will be available to non-residents.”
Once all the artwork I have supplied is delivered and fitted, I will add a separate post to this blog featuring this.
