Terence Conran's latest venture, the Boundary Hotel, is located in Shoreditch (in the once-unfashionable East End of London). The hotel is housed in a converted Victorian warehouse; individual guest rooms are inspired by a designer or a design movement of Conran's choosing (Eames, Bauhaus, and Shaker, to name a few), while guest suites are designed by Conran's inner circle, with artwork from Conran's own collection. The ground floor houses the Albion, a cafe with adjoining bakery and grocery store, while the Boundary restaurant is in the basement. On the roof is a garden and bar, centered around an open fireplace, with views of the city; opening hours can be found on Twitter.
