Once upon a time the residence of the Scottish Royalty to then becoming the headquarters of the Metropolitan Police, The Great Scotland Yard begins a brand new chapter, this time as an art-filled hotel where tradition meets modern luxury. The much-awaited hospitality project which is part of the extravagant Unbound Collection By Hyatt, is set in one of London’s most historic and cherished buildings, carving a class of its own.

LEDFlex is privileged to have contributed to the realisation of the Hotel's spectacular lighting design. Working in collaboration with the creatives at Singapore based Illuminate Lighting Design, we have designed custom linear solutions for several areas within the Hotel, amongst which are the hotel’s signature restaurant, The Yard by Robin Gill, and the opulent cocktail bar, The 40 Elephants.

At the former, our latest Flexi Grazer Domed Fixture seamlessly grazes the historic brick walls while our flagship Eco Flex underlines the stylish tan-leather seating. At the latter, red velvets, blue tile work and carved wood beneath the contemporary glass chandelier come together to form a magnum opus.

Our Nano Flex Range weaves together and brings to life intricate details of each of these grand elements. Warm temperatures of Intense Flex from our Flex Family can also be seen integrated into the lobby's cove, evoking a sense of classic glamour. The product has further been customized to fit all 152 guest rooms and 15 suites.

The overall lighting scheme not only complements the grand Edwardian and Victorian architecture, but also beautifully unravels the hidden stories the site has held on to for over generations. And as this new chapter begins, begins with it the creation of more inspiring stories for the generations to come.
