ASI Group was approached by the architects of Hotel X in Toronto, Ontario to help meet their vision for European elegance in the hotel’s luxurious washrooms.
Hotel X Toronto was designed by Stephen B. Jacobs Group P.C. to embrace all the wonderful flavours of the globe. Every detail was carefully selected to offer guests a modern, luxurious experience that encapsulates authentic hospitality and embraces the hotel’s historic and iconic location on 192 acres of city parkland in the heart of Toronto’s Exhibition Grounds.
“It was imperative that every aspect of Hotel X contribute to providing guests with an unparalleled hospitality experience,” said Stephen B. Jacobs, FAIA, president and founder of Stephen B. Jacobs Group P.C.
“To convey our design inspiration within the hotel’s washrooms, we envisioned an elegant European look that ensured as much privacy as it did design impact. Working together with the ASI Group, we created a completely unique design that is atypical in North America,” Jacobs explained.
Hotel X’s sophisticated washrooms showcase luxury, with deep toilet partitions surrounded by towering Alpaco doors, panels and pilasters that extend from within inches above the floor to nearly touching the ceiling.
The panels, doors and pilasters made from 13mm Phenolic (B101 Banian Noirci), and robust aluminium headrails (powdercoated in black) provide durability to the elegant structure. Hardware and pedestals made from stainless steel stand out just enough to add the right touch of flair.
The partnership with the experienced ASI Group team meant the custom-designed extra-depth phenolic panels could be sourced from the company’s European headquarters in Belgium. Additionally, the ASI Group flew in an experienced installer from Belgium to guide local crews on the custom installation.
The stunning washrooms complement the upscale, tailored design of Hotel X, welcoming discerning guests to the bespoke experience of sophisticated luxury.
