This international business hotel is directly adjacent to the airport, and acts as the hub of countless directional flows. The design concept for the conversion adopts movement as its premise. However, rather than countering all the hectic activity by a dead standstill, this concept seeks out the tranquillity contained within the motion itself. The secret lies in its rhythm: a curved red wall extends throughout the ground floor, bringing the guests’ movements into a congenial flow.
