Kate & Co. PR is thrilled to welcome Oxford House, Paddington’s first lifestyle hotel, to the agency roster.
Taking its cues from the understated and stylish aesthetic of Palm Springs, OH! (as the hotel is affectionately known) features 56 rooms and suites, all day dining across two dining experiences and a poolside bar, providing a true urban oasis just a short stroll from bustling Oxford Street.
Principal designer, Tom de Plater, describes OH! as, “a unique opportunity to create an accommodation first for Paddington, provide a new hospitality experience for locals, and help energise an important part of town. Given the hotel’s enviable location – famed shopping, nightlife and Allianz stadium, all within walking distance and the beach and city, a short drive away – we wanted to create a space that really felt like an unexpected escape; a hotel that was as relaxed as Oxford Street is lively.”
He continues, “Whilst we took design notes from the sleek lines and muted colours of Palm Springs, it was important that Oxford House effortlessly threaded into the cultural fabric of Paddington, so art and design was key. We collaborated with culture king, George Gorrow to showcase an incredible collection of art, paintings, photography, collage, printmaking and sculpture from artists including Lena Gustafson, Adam Turnbull and Niah McLeod throughout the property.”
Oxford House is the latest in an impressive line-up of new venues to open for Public Hospitality – a lifestyle group guided by the vision of Jon Adgemis and Peter Crinis to uncover the potential of heritage buildings and restore them to their former glory.
And we concur, after staying as a team at Oxford House in September, the relaxed vibes in the courtyard and the integration into the community was apparent, a stunning place to stay or visit, we are OH! so excited to be working with this impressive team.
See you poolside!
