The Hoxton, Charlottenburg is now open in West Berlin. The interiors of the 234-room property, which marks the brand’s debut in Germany, balance Art Nouveau elegance with Brutalist silhouettes and textures thanks to a design by Ennismore’s in-house team AIME Studios.
“Charlottenburg was at the heart of Berlin’s cultural and creative resurgence during the Golden Twenties and so we were definitely influenced by the aesthetic of that era when creating the interiors of the hotel,” says Ennismore vice president of design Charlie North. “We also wanted to pay homage to the extraordinarily diverse architectural landscape of West Berlin, and therefore devised a ‘rough-nouveau’ concept.”
Blue and green tones adorn the hotel’s open lobby, which is populated with midcentury furniture, bespoke rugs, and Bauhaus-inspired artwork. The Apartment, a hybrid meeting and event space, transports guests to a 1920s-style parlor that takes inspiration from the signature aesthetic of iconic expressionist dancer Mary Wigman through a soft, feminine color story, fluted lines, and vintage lighting.
House of Tandoor, the Hoxton, Charlottenburg’s onsite Indian restaurant, is open all day, while the Teahouse (located just before the entrance to the main restaurant) offers a grab-and-go breakfast option. Here, mosaic tiles laid in a shell pattern accentuate a green marble-topped bar. Just beyond, a copper and wood open kitchen serves as the focal point of House of Tandoor. Plush bench seating, wood elements, and Indian-inspired artwork also define the space.
Accommodations at the Hoxton, Charlottenburg span seven configurations—each of which honor classical structures from the neighborhood’s architectural landscape. The soft fluidity of Art Nouveau forms and flourishes are offset by a muted color palette of desaturated pinks and greens, as well as wall paneling and wooden herringbone floors. This dialogue is also echoed in bathrooms, where exposed metal shelving contrast ornate patterns and timber moldings.
