The Westin Unveils Elegant Expansion to it’s Iconic Atrium Lounge
- Thu, 19 Sep 2019
The Westin Dublin, the luxury five star hotel in the heart of the city centre, unveiled an elegant multi-million euro redesign and expansion this week, utilizing space that was once part of the prominent AIB sandstone building.
Not only did the iconic 5 star city centre hotel unveil a stunning refresh of the hotel’s iconic Atrium Lounge, they also unveiled the addition of 19 beautifully appointed bedrooms overlooking Trinity College and Westmoreland Street. Led by Dublin-based, architecture and interior-design firm, NODA, the project also included the creation of an additional space, the Library, adjacent to The Atrium Lounge.
An inspirational haven with a five-story high glass ceiling, the existing Atrium Lounge at The Westin Dublin in the heart of the hotel, is known to many as an oasis of calm in the bustling city centre and a focal point for morning coffees and celebratory afternoon teas. The new space, the Library, sits adjacent to the Atrium Lounge and offers a more intimate and private setting, the perfect addition to the bright and spacious Atrium. The design of this extension combines natural, clean lines with rich textures, and introduces beautiful hand painted wallcoverings with floral motifs, and bespoke furniture. Antique mirrors, pendant lamps and innovative lighting make the Library the ideal setting to sit back, relax, and escape from busy city life. The inspiration behind the Library stems from the Westin’s neighbouring libraries at Trinity College Dublin and is demonstrated in the deep burgundy tones, Irish mahogany bookshelves and focal marble fireplace.
The new heritage deluxe bedrooms emanates from the dramatic Irish Coastline. Many patrons of the Westin Dublin travel overseas to the hotel, and first encounter Ireland with aerial coastal views of the Emerald Isle. Think of Allcock and Browne making the first transatlantic crossing 100 years ago in 1919, the aerial view that they captured remains the same to this day – amazing.
