Interior for one floor of the hotel (28 standard rooms, 2 suites and common area)
Design Statement by Zaha Hadid
The Client allowed us full autonomy, the brief – to design a floor of a hotel comprising 30 rooms and all common parts. The objective was to ensure a dynamic and customized project with the aim to ultimately allow for a fluid space and seamless experience.
We took the opportunity to create a new domestic language of architecture, driven by new developments in digital design and enhanced manufacturing capabilities. This new dialogue emphasises the complex and continuous nature of the design and the merging of disparate forms and texture.
In the rooms floor, wall and furniture are all one continuous surface or skin, making them pieces of art. Every single element – the walls, bedroom door with its LED signs, sliding door to the bathroom, bathtub and vanity unit, bed, shelves, chair and a cantilevered bench by the
window which doubles up as a table - is rounded in a single curved sweep.
A further unique element of this suite of bedrooms is the use of colour.
Customers can opt for an alpine white or a black bedroom, or even choose a
white bedroom with a black bathroom, black bedroom and white bathroom or a
black bedroom and an orange bathroom.
