NoMad, a small collection of exclusive hotels, has travelled across the Pond and made its impressive UK debut in the historic Grade-II listed building formerly known as The Bow Street Magistrates Court and Police Station. Steeped in history, in the middle of bustling Covent Garden, the 19th century building has been transformed into a cutting-edge boutique hotel.
Cameron was drafted in to create eye-catching internal planting for the amazing three-tiered, glass-domed atrium which is reminiscent of an Edwardian greenhouse and is an all-day dining venue. Bespoke planters attach to the columns which have living climbers wrapped around them. Beautiful reclaimed stone urns with seasonal planting and trailing perennials add to the spirit of casual elegance. A central planting trough, wide enough for lush, verdant planting leads the eye through the impressive dining space. The space is studded with free-standing pots with a range of internal trees which add yet more interest and atmosphere.
Cameron has installed a fantastic display of statement trees and a melange of pots of differing styles and textures, with evergreen planting for year-round versatility, to ‘green up’ the façade and entrance. A welcome aperitif for what’s to come on entering this spectacular atrium. NoMad, London is destined to be, like its international counterparts, an uber-fashionable boutique bolthole.
