Hotel Development


Against the tranquil backdrop of southeastern Pattaya's Na Jomtien beach, the staggered cubed villa complex of Mason emerges as an ode to craftsmanship, inspired by the cultural roots of its location.

Market Street Hotel

Design Hotels'™ first member hotel in Scotland, Market Street Hotel, is set to disrupt Edinburgh's traditional hotel scene with its unique brand of neo-brutalism meets Scots heritage. Set between the New Town's graciously elegant Georgian façades and the Baronial tenements of the Old Town, the 98-room hotel reflects both the architectural diversity of the forward-thinking capital and its rich cultural identity—both past and present.
