In 2013, Conde Nast Traveller granted Sydney’s Langham Hotel a position on its Gold List in recognition of the timeless elegance and refined sophistication of the boutique hotel’s heritage. Rightly priding itself on uncompromised levels of service, the Langham continues to prove a gold standard in terms of modern charm luxury in keeping with the brand’s signature British tradition.
British tradition, in fact, acts as the driving force for the Langham’s design scheme – whether in dining areas, private suites or communal spaces. Everywhere the attention to detail is impeccable: generous and luxurious furnishings finished in rich leathers, velvets and suede interact gently with pin-point accurate joinery and archly humorous features such as Christopher Boots’ widely-vaunted lighting. With luxury and refinement always being the order of the day, the Langham’s design team demonstrate a constant sensitivity to balancing the traditional with the ultra-contemporary. Objects designed by some of today’s leading international designers sit side-by-side objects that recall the discrete charm of the old world.
Throughout, parquetry oak flooring recalls the residences of Britain’s landed gentry, that when coupled with thick pile carpet elevates the structure’s historic profile to suit the needs of the modern traveller. Finished in Precision Flooring’s rich chestnut-toned Penza, the generous use of this engineered timber across the hotel’s various spaces provides a warm and inviting backdrop to ensure that even if you’ve crossed the world to get there, you’ll always feel right at home.
