UK: The 14-key Kingsland Locke will open in London's Dalston neighbourhood, in January 2021.

The project will feature an on-site microbrewery and gin distillery, all-day restaurant, complimentary co-working space, workout studio and coffee shop.

“Kingsland Locke marks our fourth property to open in London and is a particularly exciting launch for us all. This launch, as with other Locke openings, has been all about championing the local Dalston area and seeking partners and collaborators that call the area home – from the architects to the uniform designers. With Kingsland Locke, we are aiming to celebrate Dalston’s unique creative landscape, and in doing so, create an environment in which both travellers and locals feel at home," said Stephen McCall, CEO of edyn.

Kingsland Locke will be home to KRAFT Dalston, a food and drink venture formed between German Kraft Brewery, Jim and Tonic Distillery and Le Bab.

The interiors of Kingsland Locke have been conceived by East London-based studio Red Deer, which has taken design inspiration from "the vibrant colours and scenes of the surrounding Dalston neighbourhood".

Rooms have been designed with a more muted palette, using "raw textures and subtle tones to encourage rest and relaxation".

"We are really excited to have partnered with Locke for their first venture into East London. For the design of Kingsland Locke we took inspiration from the hotel’s surroundings to help ground it within the local community, as well as creating a connection between the hotel guest and the space they inhabit," said Lucas Che Tizard, founding director at Red Deer Architects.

Kingsland Locke is situated within walking distance of Broadway Market, Columbia Road Flower Market and Dalston Curve Garden.

Locke has opened six UK properties in the past four years in London, Manchester and Edinburgh, with further openings planned in Dublin, Berlin, Lisbon, Munich and Copenhagen.
