Lincombe Hall Hotel, an AA 4-star boutique destination in Torquay, UK, opened a new £2m luxury gym and spa, for guests and members, last November.
Changing room specialists, Crown Sports Lockers, worked on the design, construction and fit-out of the spa, alongside interior designers, Ashton House Design and members of the Powis family, the hotel’s owners.
Crown manufactured and installed bespoke male and female changing areas to chime with the facility’s coastal theme. The spa interiors include etched glass graphics and graduated blue pool tiling.
Lockers have solid-timber shaker doors with a painted finish in contemporary pastel shades to create a “warm, cosy and relaxing environment”, according to Crown’s project manager, Sam Palmer, who worked with the team from the first meeting to the final signoff.
"The feature column delivers a memorable first-view on entering the
changing room" - Sam Palmer
Cork locker key fobs overcame an operational challenge, as they float if lost in the pool, making retrieval straightforward.
An unusual feature within the women’s changing area is the central seating area, with integral upholstered bench seating and an iridescent mosaic column.
“This feature was a first for us,” says Palmer. “The column delivers a memorable first-view on entering the changing room. Its creation was only made possible because we have the manufacturing specialisms to deliver.”
