Project Highlight: The Standard Hotel London

Featured in the February 2020 issue of Interior Design MagazineThe Standard Hotel London has been a project with DDS since 2016, opening to the public at the end of 2019. Working with Shawn Hausman Design, DDS was able to provide many custom items for the Kings Cross landmark. 

“Working with DDS gave us the freedom to play with colors & shapes.
Whether it was for 250 rooms or 1 custom table, their devotion to the design process didn’t vary. We are forever grateful!”

Principal, Shawn Hausman Design

The designers rose to the challenge of working with the unique Brutalist architecture of the 1974 landmark and former office building. The new hotel features 266 guest rooms in 42 styles, for a unique experience on repeated stays. DDS provided guest baths with Santos Heritage Field tile in 6 colors and trims, paired variously throughout the project. The ground floor lounge has been populated with custom Cev tile tabletops.

On the 10th floor, with a view of the London skyline, Michelin-starred Decimo features custom Santos Dimple Concave 2x8" tile in striking red and yellow hues. 

Design and Direct Source is proud to have contributed to one of London's most unique hospitality projects.
