In a fittingly gorgeous area of Edinburgh’s West End comes the second Scottish opening for Voco Hotel. Inside and out, the eight-story hotel in Haymarket is defined by its contemporary look. EZ Concept’s flush finish access panel systems were specified to complete this look, elevating the minimalist aesthetic of the corridors interwoven through the building. The EZ Concept team ensured the smooth completion of this project in collaboration with Ogilvie Group and Elite Door Solutions.
The hotel’s sleek interior design flows from the hallways welcoming guests through its doors, to the restaurant/bar and selection of luxurious suites. In line with this architectural vision came the necessity to minimise the detailing of architectural openings and finishings. In doing so, doorways and access panels are integrated seamlessly – not disrupting or distracting from the centrepieces of these spaces. Rather, installation of the Bespoke AccessDor access panel system allows the free-flowing, spacious feel of the corridors to shine. The bespoke AccessDor model was installed and framed with an adjustable closing jamb (Classic Adjust with no reveal) – suited to various wall thicknesses. This model of the system was selected for easy adjustability to suit various wall thicknesses.
As displayed here (see right), the building’s hardware and piping are concealed and hidden from view from those passing through the hallways. This is made possible by the design of the AccessDor leaving an innocuous 3mm reveal between the door and plasterboard. This creates a frameless finish perfectly suited to the Voco Hotel’s high-end look and standard.
The minimalist design is furthered by the pairing of RocYork Concealed Hinges with the access doors. When the access doors are closed, the hinges disappear ensuring no components are protruding from the wall whatsoever.
The access panels for the project were specified with Euro Cylindrical Locks to meet the hotel’s security requirements. Along with this, each installation was fitted in accordance with the Fire Rating requirements of the Voco property. FD30 and FD60 options are offered with the Flush Finish AccessDor System. A broader range of Fire Ratings can also be specified with Standard Access Panels along with a selection of Acoustic ratings; learn more with the Specification Brochure.
