Ennismore Design Studio evokes modern Northwest for The Hoxton, Portland

The Hoxton, Portland is scheduled to open in Oregon this month, becoming the brand’s sixth international hotel and its second North American property following the opening of the Hoxton, Williamsburg in September.

The Portland property is being crafted by Ennismore Design Studio, which is paying homage to Northwest modernist styles in the design.

Opening in the city’s Old Town Chinatown, the property will occupy 1906 building, with the design team keeping the original timber columns, exposed brick walls and reclaimed timber floors. Bespoke geometric tiling will punctuate the interior alongside colorful walls adorned with artwork and fluted leather benches.
