Budget boutique opts for stylish Synergy
Synergy decorative wiring accessories from Legrand have been installed throughout a new hotel in Newcastle city centre that is shaking up the budget hotel market by delivering affordable accommodation in a boutique setting.
Sleeperz is a 98-bedroom glass fronted hotel situated close to Newcastle Central Station and the city’s popular quayside area. It offers modern, cutting edge architectural design teamed with bold contemporary interiors and an array of features normally associated with far more expensive hotels.
Javeed Anwar, head of marketing and sales for Sleeperz Hotels said: “The unique selling point of Sleeperz is that we offer budget prices in a location that oozes style, something that we achieved by putting every single aspect of the hotel under the interior design microscope.”
Anwar worked closely with Janine Powell of Ilfracombe-based Hampton Design Studios to create the perfect look and Legrand’s brushed steel Traditional Synergy wiring accessories were selected for use throughout the hotel – a specification decision made due to their aesthetic appeal.
“We did have another manufacturer’s products in mind, but once we saw Synergy we immediately changed our thinking,” added Anwar. “The range had everything we were looking for and more.”
The full specification comprised 1, 2 and 3 gang switches, 1 gang switched and unswitched sockets, 2 gang sockets, double and single data sockets, telephone and TV sockets, and included both Synergy white and Synergy decorative wiring accessories.
Caroline Boden, marketing manager for Legrand’s wiring device division, said: “When we first launched Synergy our aim was to elevate wiring accessories to the status of must-have style accessories – especially within the hotel sector. Seven years down the line wiring accessories really are seen as part and parcel of a hotel’s interior design scheme, and Synergy has gone from strength to strength.”
Legrand’s Synergy range features wiring accessories that not only complement every conceivable décor, but also meet the practical and safety needs of installers and end users. The range also benefits from the flexibility and functionality of a comprehensive grid system that can support between 1 and 24 modules.
Legrand is a world specialist in wiring accessories and is also fast establishing itself as one the leading manufacturers of smart building automation systems.
