YOTEL Glasgow

DesignAgency developed the creative concept and interiors for  YOTEL Glasgow’s common spaces and VEGA, a top floor destination bar and restaurant with live entertainment and a bowling alley. With the aim of attracting young professionals — travellers and locals alike —  the design team created energetic contemporary interiors that reference Glasgow’s rich history. Nautical elements in the lobby nod to the city’s shipbuilding tradition. Curvaceous forms, wooden tambour walls, terrazzo-look counters and coloured glass fins used throughout the interior combine to create a memorable visual feast. The hotel’s Hope Street entrance leads to the sky lift with direct access to VEGA, a 13,700 square foot rooftop space complete with bar, restaurant, and bowling alley. The 7th floor space references Glasgow’s Brit pop music scene with a space-age twist. Neon accents punctuate the interior palette of deep moody blue and black. Arched ceilings  and ever-changing projections animate the four-lane bowling alley space. DesignAgency collaborated with Artin Light on lighting design and features throughout the project.
