When historic architecture and modern interior design are
skilfully combined, the result is inspiring rooms – perfectly demonstrated at
the Hotel Indigo Warsaw Nowy Świat in Warsaw. This stylish 4-star boutique
hotel, owned by the InterContinental Hotels Group, is housed in a listed
building, over 100 years old, on cosmopolitan Nowy Świat Street. Later
contemporary extensions, some with wraparound glass, afford not only a
magnificent view of the old town and the Polish capital’s skyline from all the
rooms, but also provide a suitable frame for a minimalist interior with vibrant
splashes of colour. In the bathrooms, the hotel has chosen enamelled bathroom
solutions from Kaldewei.
The building, Smolna40, which features playful decorative facade
elements, was once the residence of Count Branicki and is in one of the city’s
most picturesque areas which links contemporary and historic Warsaw. Destroyed
during the Second World War, it was rebuilt in the 1950s and later a modern
mansard roof and an annex with wraparound glass and a terrace were added based
on a design by architect Bogdan Kulczyński. This produced an attractive mix of
styles that runs through the entire hotel. Bright rooms with elaborate stucco
and elegant columns contrast with the 60 bedrooms that embrace a more minimalist
look in plain shades of white and grey. Throughout the hotel, coloured
furniture creates exciting highlights that put their own spin on the palatial
style of 19th century mansion flats.
Distinctive bathroom design with Iconic Bathroom Solutions
In the bathrooms, the Hotel Indigo chose solutions from Kaldewei
which offer the right fit for the bathroom, thanks to their design language.
The bathtubs from clean-lined, minimalist Puro line possess a persuasively unfussy
elegance which harmonises with the interior design of the guest rooms. As a
highlight, the freestanding Meisterstück Centro Duo Oval brings timeless
elegance and calm into the bathroom of the Superior Premium room. In a further
47 rooms, the Conoflat floor-level shower surface ensures a luxurious showering
experience, while offering the greatest safety underfoot: because the shower
surfaces in the matt shades of Lava Black and Alpine White from the Coordinated
Colours Collection feature the anti-slip properties of the Secure Plus finish.
