W Hotel in London Leicester Square, United Kingdom by Concrete Architectural Associates

Wednesday, September 11th, 2013

Article source: Concrete Architectural Associates


There is more to London than the obvious tourist attractions. Ultimately you’ll get the chance to see the city from within.  We’d like to show you the real London and what true Londoners are about. A public and private tour guides you through the day and night life of a quintessential Englishman and woman. We follow the transition of a classic businessman in the morning to a dancing star on the bar at night, and imagining everything in between.

Double Tree by Hilton Hotel in Chinchwad, Pune, India by Masafumi Sanada

Thursday, September 5th, 2013

Article source: Masafumi Sanada

Chinchwad is a thirty minute drive from the center of Pune, and is thriving as a factory neighborhood of domestic and Western automakers. The main target for this hotel is these Western businesspersons.

This was our seventh project in India, and we designed the whole interior of the newly built hotel with 14 floors and about 120 rooms. It is a five-star hotel, which is still rare in Chinchwad, and has all-day dining, a bar, spa, hair salon, gym, ex-lounge, presidential suite, and roof top bar facilities.

CASA GOMEZ in Cancun, Mexico by SOSTUDIO / Sergio Orduña Architects

Article source: SOSTUDIO / Sergio Orduña Architects

The project “Casa Gòmez” was developed and built by SOSTUDIO between 2011 and 2012 in the residential area at the Puerto Cancun development. By an approach to the deconstructive architecture, the design is organized by combining interior and exterior areas as a single space through big hidable windows, thus favouring the main views to the canal and the hotel zone of Cancun.

THE ENERGY OF CERRO MISTICO (MYSTIC HILL) in Lavalleja, Uruguay by FDS Arquitectos

Friday, August 16th, 2013

Article source: FDS Arquitectos

A good friend calls us to design a small hotel, 4 or 6 rooms on the hills of Lavalleja, Uruguay. The area is very well known for its spiritual tourism, as it is a very energetic place.

Visit to the area

there is definitely something very special about the energy of the hill:  it is quite inaccessible, it is covered by low native  vegetation. There are formations belonging to the earliest inhabitants of the place and archeological remains difficult to date. The views from up there are breathtaking.  Our friend and his family are in love with the place, we feel incredibly motivated and challenged by the task.

Ananta Legian Hotel in Bali, Indonesia by Airmas Asri

Tuesday, July 30th, 2013

Article source: Airmas Asri

The concept of Ananta Legian Hotel lobby is inspired by BentarTemple which is described as a ”Kori Agung” that functioned as a gate. The grand steps towards the Lobby from the lower floor express the greatness of the Lobby as the “Kori Agung”. The balinese Serai stones are used in the building facade together with the pond and water fountain around the lobby to create ambience of balinese temple and the place of sacred liturgy of Hindu ceremony by pedanda—the high priest in Bali.

W Guangzhou Hotel and Residences in Zhujiang Xincheng (Pearl River New Town), Guangdong by Rocco Design Architects

Tuesday, July 30th, 2013

Article source: Rocco Design Architects 

The W Guangzhou Hotel & Residences complex was designed in 2006 and the construction works began in the next year. After 6 year’s construction, W Guangzhou ushered in its grand opening in May 2013.
The architecture of W Guangzhou is a response both to the urban conditions of contemporary Guangzhou, and to the unique programme of a compact city hotel.
The building is an actual amalgamation of two components: a 317-room boutique hotel and a 160-unit serviced apartment under one single management.

  • Completion Date: 2013
  • Site Area: 22,630 sq m
  • Gross Floor Area: 106,500 sq m

The building flanks a major boulevard (Xian Cun Road) along the central axis of the new CBD of Guangzhou. The lower hotel portion addresses the busy Xian Cun Road / Jin Sui Road turnabout, announcing the brand and projecting the glazed roof-top spa; while the taller apartment portion turns the corner of the quieter south-eastern Xian Cun Road junction.

The two portions are architecturally unified into one monolithic block that presents a large-scale public image, defines the street edge and reinforces its linearity, but at the same time is punctuated in the centre with a large vertical ‘window’ that allows the inner landscaped park of the urban block to visually and spatially merge with the public street. This compositional gesture brings about an urban permeability that enhances the lighting and air flow pattern within the district.

Within the unified architectural mass, individual components are given their own expression: the private residential portion i.e. guest rooms and apartments are clad in dark granite / glass, their scale subtly defined by a matrix of vertical glass fins, while the public portion i.e. bar, restaurants and spa are enclosed in transparent glazed boxes that visually spring out from the dark background and allow the hotel’s ambience to radiate into the surrounding neighborhoods.

With major hotel functions needing to be stacked up vertically by virtue of the compact size of the urban lot, the architecture is an actual embodiment of an intriguing spatial journey from the ground up: a three-dimensional and intertwining sequencing of diverse spatial forms and experience, from the narrow and vertical entrance vestibule, to the spacious but intimate reception ‘living room’, to the transparent bar in the floating glass box, all the way to the green and semi-enclosed swimming pool resting on the building’s top.
The architecture of W visually intrigues, and at the same time creates a spatial odyssey that invites exploration and keeps senses invigorated.
