Yotel Edinburgh

Category: Hotels & resorts

Installation date: 2021

Scotland's very first YOTEL, located in the heart of Edinburgh features playful 'cabin' style rooms with bathrooms that use the bespoke solution of Roca's innovative and exclusive solid surface material Surfex®

Working closely alongside YOTEL at the design stage of the project, Roca created a bathroom solution that closely aligned with the brand standards. This included the Gap wall‐hung WC and a bespoke vanity unit, in addition to bespoke washroom countertops for the public areas of the hotel. The bespoke units were made using Surfex®, a malleable solid surface material formulated from a combination of minerals and resins. The unique properties of Surfex allow it to be poured into a production mould, enabling complex designs with no joints or seams. The materials properties also permit ‘on-­‐site’ changes to the finished product, catering to different guestroom sizes and configurations. At YOTEL Edinburgh the advantages of Surfex were harnessed to create a wash basin bowl with an integrated unit that maximises countertop space, providing ample storage space for toiletries and grooming products.
