Hotel Bullitt, a boutique hotel in the heart of Belfast, was designed by architecture firm Ado Architects.
Independent of the large hotel chains and designed with a strikingly individual personality, the hotel was created by renovating and remodelling a 1950s office building, and the interiors have the industrial style of renovated disused lofts.
The key feature of the project is the use of bare brick, a trendy material widely used in Irish architecture, which gives the rooms their strikingly industrial character. The material chosen to provide the brick covering of the floor and some of the walls was Marazzi Terramixstoneware, with its subtle terracotta colours, in this case in the Marrone and Bianco variants.
Marazzi stoneware was also chosen for the hotel’s rooftop area. Allmarble20, the extra-thickness marble-effect porcelain stoneware specifically designed for even public outdoor locations, provides the paving for Babel, the largest rooftop bar in Ireland, with a large panoramic terrace offering a view of Belfast's roofs.
