The Pilgrm, a new venture from long-time collaborators Jason Catifeoglou, Andreas Thrasyvoulou and Steph Thrasyvoulou, is slated to open in Paddington’s Norfolk Square in November.
The property is a considered reinterpretation of a traditional hotel, with a newly thought out iteration of hospitality that redefines the long-established parameters by transforming selected elements and services.
Housed in restored Victorian buildings, the hotel comprises 73 guestrooms, a ground floor neighbourhood café, and first floor lounge. Guestrooms feature Samsung television sets, high-speed WiFi, Marshall speakers, 100% organic cotton mattress, Egyptian cotton sheets and towels, and bespoke natural toiletries.
A selection of books, magazines, plants and unique artwork by Keith Cunningham, Jo Bondy and Lydia Makin highlights The Pilgrm”s point of difference, while 24-hour communal pantries feature in lieu of minibars or room service.
The original Victorian architectural designs, including a timber staircase and cast iron balustrades, have been restored and feature alongside a mix of reclaimed and restored furniture and fittings throughout the property. Guestrooms comprise Tom Dixon cloud carpets; Wails in place of traditional wardrobes, an original design by The Pilgrm”s interior design team; and 200-year-old reclaimed parquet flooring.
