Fairmont St Andrews reveals redesigned atrium

As part of Fairmont St Andrews’ ongoing renovations, last night (1 September) the five-star resort welcomed guests to a showcase of its newly refurbished interiors.

The public area renovations, managed by designers RPW, include a complete redesign of the hotel’s Atrium, incorporating a bespoke 60m long ceiling sculpture by award-winning artist George Singer, a new restaurant and the Kittock’s Bar.

A focal point of the renovation is George Singer’s artwork ‘Zephyr’, an organic, swirling ceiling sculpture sweeping through the Atrium, imitating the movement of the water in the North Sea.

The renovation has been influenced by the history and landscapes of St Andrews, with upholstery and fabrics selected from revered Scottish companies such as Andrew Muirhead and Bute Fabrics.

As well as a revised layout, Kittock’s Bar has drawn on nautical elements found in the nearby River Tay estuaries and surrounding fishing villages, to create a comforting atmosphere for drinking and dining.

John Keating, general manager at Fairmont St Andrews, commented, “This renovation has been a huge undertaking across the hotel; I’m extremely proud and excited to see the public areas looking so resplendent, they’ve already made a huge difference in opening space and the feel has been well received.

'The refurbishment is part of a wider investment throughout the resort over the next 12 months which will ensure Fairmont St Andrews remains one of Scotland’s leading luxury hotels, from the interior and exterior surroundings, to our personlaised service.'
