UK: edyn Group will open Bermonds Locke, its third property in the UK capital, next month.

Comprising 143 apartments, Bermonds Locke will also feature a destination restaurant, coworking areas, a bar and a workout studio.

“We are delighted to open our third property in London with Bermonds Locke. Locke aims to liberate guests from the confines of a typical hotel room by creating beautiful apartments that are designed to be lived in. The type of guest we’re accommodating wants to explore life as a local, and so the Bermondsey neighbourhood has played a significant role in defining the aesthetic, partners and programming,” said Stephen McCall, CEO of edyn.

Bermonds Locke marks the first collaboration for the brand with London-based interior architecture studio Holloway Li. The company has used repurposed construction materials in both the public areas and private apartments. Concrete testing cubes destined for landfill find new purpose serving as a plinth for six-metre long terrazzo tables in the ground floor workspaces; while in the rooms bespoke bed frames are made from blackened rebar.

"We are really excited to be partnering with Locke to pave a new design direction for the brand’s home-meets-hotel concept. By challenging the purpose of materials, we hope to highlight how a circular material economy can generate an incredibly unique aesthetic and a new kind of living experience – doing more, with less," said Alex Holloway and Na Li, co-founders of Holloway Li.

Locke has further pipeline openings in Dublin, Berlin, Lisbon, Munich and Copenhagen. It is also set to open its fourth London property in Dalston in late 2020.
