The St James Collection products supplied allowed the creation of striking bespoke bathrooms in accordance to the Art-Deco influences throughout the hotel. The design elements of Hotel Gotham immediately lent themselves towards the St James Heligan pottery range. With its tight angles and open spaces, the design was easily complemented by the choice of basin mixers and showers finished with fine English porcelain lever handles, maintaining the angular theme throughout

Each of Hotel Gotham’s 60 luxurious bathrooms included a range of brassware and pottery from the St James Collection, including; wall mounted toilet pans with soft-closing seat; inset wash basins; concealed shower valves with overhead shower kit with a luxurious 12″ shower head for a rainfall showering experience; basin mixer taps with fine English London Lever white porcelain levers; and complementary accessories.

All the porcelain levers, basins and showers used in Hotel Gotham were supplied with their bespoke corporate branding depicting the Gotham Hotel livery, adding to the unique detailing throughout the hotel.

“…the ability to customise products in line with a unique vision specified and demonstrate the ability for the St James Collection traditional brassware to work alongside the strong iconic 1930’s style cues in a luxurious contemporary setting.”
