Eden Locke is the latest design-led aparthotel from leading real estate developers, U Developments, located in the heart of Edinburgh.
Created to immerse visitors into the local neighbouring culture, Eden Locke has been designed with travellers in mind; providing a stunning living area that allows guests to experience the ‘unique and authentic’ surrounding, alongside a functional living space with fully fitted kitchens, for the urban traveller who may want to cater for themselves.
To complement the trend-conscious aparthotel, leading flooring manufacturer Atkinson & Kirby was chosen to provide a high quality flooring solution to both stand the test of time in durability and design.
Around 1600m2 of Atkinson & Kirby’s Ness Smoked Oak flooring was supplied to the renovation of Eden Locke, providing the perfect solution for the aparthotels bedrooms, bars and corridors, with the idea of the product being rolled out across more of the Locke developments Europe-wide.
The second Locke aparthotel was created by renovating an existing office building that had fallen into disrepair, and given a new lease of life by the team at U Developments. With the clear attention to detail and design aspects of the project, alongside the help of a variety of manufacturers, including Atkinson & Kirby, the aparthotel has since been well received by guests and industry alike, even being named one of the ‘top 10 design hotels in the world’ in a list by industry experts.
Jaime Pedrosa, Managing Director of U Developments said: “The team are thrilled with the fantastic reception the second Locke aparthotel, Eden Locke, has received since its launch in 2017. The Atkinson & Kirby flooring supplied for the project helped to enhance our carefully selected design and colour scheme, and we’ve been reassured that this high quality flooring will stand the test of time”.
Josh Burbidge, Flooring Director for Atkinson & Kirby said: “We’re thrilled with the final outcome of the Eden Locke project. Being a busy commercial setting, it’s vital to select a range that will be hardwearing, but we’re also thrilled at how the smoked oak design was able to provide a trend-led solution for this design focused client.”
