FJB Hotels, The Haven, Sandbanks

Design Strategy…

What more could we ask for, but to be selected to assist with the interior updates for the iconic 4 star Haven Hotel in one of the most beautiful parts of the UK, Sandbanks in Poole, Dorset. We were engaged by the FJB Group earlier in the year and have been working hard to give the hotel a makeover, whilst still retaining the heritage and character.

We’ve focused on a 1930’s Deco inspired theme, with understated elegance and glamour, and with a view that such a style never dates. A neutral palette forms the base of the scheme, with Deco inspired furniture and soft furnishings. The styling has been kept simple, with clean lines, interesting fabrics, textures and attention to detail, with elements of bespoke furniture and artwork.

The conceptual package was presented this week to the management team, who embraced it all with passion. Each meeting with the FJB team has been an education, from meeting the team, to understanding the business past and present and being part of the journey to take the business to the next chapter of its long and successful history to date.

We’ve now handed over the project for the FJB team to implement, although we’re on hand to assist should they need us. We’d like to thank John, Duncan and Charlotte for their continued trust and support and for listening to our advice.
