Owned and operated by the YMCA, The Bristol wing is a boutique hostel that is situated in the fully refurbished Bidwell Police Station. Itself an historical landmark in Bristol with a deep history, which has over the years been the former home of the Bristol Police Force, prisoners, a group of local artists and also a circus troupe!
One Eighty Light, alongside interior designer Story Design helped create a lighting scheme that not only lit the building to help tell its unique story but also felt homely to those that are staying in the building. The lighting offers nods to the buildings history be it the bespoke lobby pendant in front of the New York style lift or the blue LED strip running the entirety of the lift shaft paying homage to the thin blue line, the nickname given to the police force.
By using well established brands like Anglepoise in the bedrooms we could make any visitor feel a bit more at home even if they are thousands of miles from home.
