Spanish hotel chain Meliá Hotels International’s highly anticipated INNSiDE Liverpool is based on Old Hall Street, inside the iconic former Liverpool Echo offices, offering a superb location just steps from the famous Liver Building and Albert Dock. The design and reconfiguration of the building was taken care of by architects Corstorphine & Wright, and the 18-story hotel now aims to be a major attraction for visitors to the city with 207 en-suite rooms, restaurant, 360 panoramic Sky Bar, extensive conference and event space and state-of-the-art fitness room.
The contemporary and stylish rooms have been designed with a modern monochrome palette, using tones of black, white, and gray, and open up to the minimalist bathrooms specified with high-quality bathroom products by Roca. The bathrooms feature the elegant Prisma washbasin, in glossy white. With its contemporary design combined with its easy functionality, Roca’s Prisma collection has been a favorite since its launch. The Prisma 600mm basin unit is complemented by the Roca brassware – the modern L20 basin mixer in sleek chrome, featuring Roca’s EverShine finish for a lasting shine. Larger bedrooms include Prisma double sinks for added convenience.
The bathrooms are all fitted with wall-hung WCs from Roca’s popular Debba range with luxury soft-closing seats and free chrome flush plates. The Debba collection offers a wide range of solutions which, combined with its soft and square design, fit perfectly into any bathroom space. The Virginia freestanding tub in white makes a punchy focal point in 26 of the bathrooms, while the rectangular Contesa adds a touch of elegance to the others. Made of steel, the Contesa bathtub is hygienic and extremely efficient at maintaining the water temperature, keeping the water hotter for longer.
Roca’s Victoria T shower columns are used in shower areas, providing a practical and stylish solution with the added benefits of thermostatic functionality that maintains a constant water temperature for a pleasant showering experience and avoids the risk of scalding .
“We worked closely with the team at Hotel Melia and the main contractor mac-group to ensure that our innovative and high-quality bathroom products were the perfect bathroom solution in this exciting project. Said Sara Farina, Roca Specs Manager. “Roca has a long history of working on some of the most prestigious hotel projects in the world and we were delighted to be able to use our expertise at the INNSiDE Liverpool hotel.
One of the great draws of the INNSiDE Liverpool hotel is its elegant restaurant, Gino D’Acampo Old Hall Street, with an extensive menu of classic Italian dishes and premium drinks in a chic and contemporary setting. Gino’s new 360 Sky Bar on the hotel’s 18th floor, with unparalleled panoramic views of the city and beyond, is one of the city’s most desirable spots. the atmosphere from day to night. Such a spectacular bar requires equally impressive specifications for the guest toilet. Chic guest toilets feature a full line of Roca products, including the luxurious Inspira Round on Countertop lavatory, offering a minimal and modern design style.
Roca uses the latest and most innovative materials to produce the Inspira collection. The washbasins are made of Fineceramic, a high-quality ceramic material exclusive to Roca that facilitates precision and sophisticated design details. Deep, roomy bowls and smooth surfaces make Inspira sinks easy to use and clean. The specified brassware is the Roca L20-E Touchless Electronic Lavatory Mixer in Chrome for a contemporary and stylish finish. The Roca range of electronic basin mixers are equipped with an infrared sensor that activates the water flow when presence is detected and stops automatically when presence is no longer detected, thus avoiding direct contact with the hands. The absence of contact with the faucet improves hygiene and prevents the accumulation of droplets and fingerprints on its surface, resulting in a cleaner product for longer. Roca electronic basin mixers offer a highly hygienic and efficient solution to combat the spread of viruses and bacteria and to reduce water consumption, making them a more environmentally friendly choice.
The specifications of these products in bedrooms and public spaces combine Roca’s solid design and aesthetics, along with the innovation and functionality required of bathrooms in a forward-thinking project like INNSiDE Liverpool.
