The Story

Radisson RED Liverpool blends together history, legacy, and eclectic design.

With a 1960s-style scooter and sidecar, a submarine sculpture and bespoke art pieces paying homage to the city’s best-known faces, buildings and culture, our carpets and rugs were designed to complement rather than take centre stage.

Koncept ID took their inspiration from the building’s stunning and distinctive architecture to combine the elegance of the Grade II-listed property with the contemporary brand design direction of Radisson RED.

Previously known as the North Western Halls, the iconic building dates back to 1871 and was originally designed by locally-born Alfred Waterhouse – the architect behind London’s Natural History Museum and Manchester Town Hall.

Providing a focal point for guests on their arrival, the thoughtful renovation includes a six-meter-high, 19th Century stained-glass window above a grand stone staircase that is adorned with Ulster carpet.

More than 792 hours were spent refurbishing the grand staircase and world-renowned polishers added the finishing touches to the 94-meter handrail. Our carpet design layers organic textures over an underlying geometric herringbone pattern that matches the lobby flooring and complements the architectural features and eye-catching artwork.

The theme continues as this style follows through into the guestroom rugs, where a variation the misty, whimsical cloud overlay design adds a sense of balance within this relaxing setting.

Our work on Radisson RED showcases how effective our bespoke designs can work on both carpets and rugs. The different rug designs in the lobby and guestrooms alongside the staircase carpet match the essence of the venue that will leave an indelible mark on guests visiting this famous city.

Tom Flanagan Karttunen, Area Senior Vice President, Northern & Western Europe at Radisson Hotel Group, says: “The Radisson RED brand and the city of Liverpool are the perfect match, both representing fun and vibrancy with strong links to music, art, and design. The building has undergone an incredible transformation. It’s one of the first buildings that visitors to the city will see when they arrive so we’ve worked hard to create an unforgettable experience for both locals and tourists.”
