The fifth Artist Residence boutique hotel is set to open in Bristol in October this year.
The property will have 23 bedrooms above a bar, cafe, garden, restaurant and events space. The Grade I-listed part Georgian townhouse, part former boot factory was on the ‘at risk' register in 2015 when Artist Residence co-founders Charlotte and Justin Salisbury found it.
Featuring the quirky, art-focused interiors the group is known for, Artist Residence Bristol has been the largest, most challenging restoration project to date.
Justin said: "For us, the real appeal of this dilapidated building is the opportunity to bring a corner of this historic square back to life for the community to enjoy."
Charlotte added: "We pick art for our places that make you feel good, have a little chuckle or stop for a double take, whether that's with a bright colour palette, a hint of nostalgia or with witty typography."
The restaurant and bar, to be named the Boot Factory, will be a hub for hotel guests and the local community. General manager Nick Ledgard (previously Granger & Co) is working with local suppliers to create the all-day menu.
Since the pair opened the first Artist Residence in Brighton in 2006 the group has expanded to sites in London, Oxfordshire (pictured) and Penzance.
