Sharan Pasricha, Founder & Co-CEO of Ennismore, said: “I’ve had the privilege of having an in-house design and creative team ever since I started Ennismore over 10 years ago and it’s fantastic to see AIME Studios today, playing a vital part in what sets us apart, creating authentic and inspiring hotels for both locals and international guests. Our designers have been integral to building our brands, ensuring each hotel remains true to the original brand vision. Testament to their incredible work are the multiple award nominations and wins including the likes of the Hotel Design Awards, the London Design Awards, AHEAD Awards and most recently winning the public vote for the Dezeen Awards for The Hoxton, Poblenou.”
