Turing Locke collects Award
Turing Locke has won Serviced Apartment Award‘s award for Best Architecture.
Pioneering lifestyle aparthotel brand Locke opened Turing Locke, its ninth property, in October 2021.
Located in the heart of Cambridge’s sustainable new development, Eddington, Turing Locke takes its name from the revolutionary computer scientist Alan Turing.
Comprised of 180 stylish apartments (including one- and two-bedroom apartments, up to 74sqm), which each feature Locke’s signature fully fitted kitchens, living and dining space – ideal for extended stay guests, the aparthotel also includes a restaurant, cocktail bar, coffee shop, retail space, co-working area, gym, meeting and events space for up to 150 guests, along with a seasonal rooftop terrace and central landscaped courtyard.
Designed by Stirling Prize-winning architects dRMM, with interiors by the globally renowned design firm AvroKO’s London studio, Turing Locke takes its design cues from the avant-garde movements established in Cambridge.
The aparthotel seamlessly combines mid-century design choices with modernist flares, set against a calm and cosy colour palette of greens, pinks and teal.
Turing Locke co-habits the building with the new 150-room Hyatt Centric Cambridge – Hyatt’s tenth hotel in the UK and the debut of its lifestyle brand Hyatt Centric in the country.
Turing Locke and Hyatt Centric Cambridge share the courtyard space and all communal areas, including the food and beverage offering at the hotel.
Since the opening of its first location in London in 2016, Locke has expanded rapidly, now operating 12 trading properties and 2,127 trading keys across five markets in the UK and mainland Europe.
Locke’s signature studio and one-bed suites are designed to offer business and leisure travellers more autonomy and flexibility than a typical hotel, suitable for either short or extended stays.
Each Locke is designed around the local community, with unique interiors, and food and drink partners, which reflect and celebrate the culture and character of the different neighbourhoods in which they’re located.
Locke is part of the edyn family, a pioneering hospitality group which also operates bespoke serviced apartments brands, Cove and Saco.
