Wednesday, July 18th, 2012

Article source: Wortmann Architects

Built in just 15 months by the architecture office Wortmann Architects Barcelona, the hotel aims to become a center for business and leisure in the Born district.

K+K Hotels based in Austria has selected Barcelona as the location for its new Boutique Hotel in order to expand its presence in major European capitals. Following the guidelines of the company, the hotel is located in one of the most central and representative areas of the city: the Born district, just a few meters from Ciutadella Parc. With a total of 92 rooms -5 of them suites-, the hotel is integrated into the strict architectural scheme of Picasso Avenue, established in 1872 by architect Josep Fontseré i Mestres which regulates the height and morphology of buildings to clear a pedestrian arcade.

Hotel Topazz in Vienna, Austria by BWM Architekten und Partner

Tuesday, July 17th, 2012

Article source: BWM Architekten und Partner

The Vienna-based architecture firm BWM Architekten und Partner and Michael Manzenreiter have created a hotel on a 153m2 corner plot near Hoher Markt Square – a hotel that draws attention to itself while at the same time enhancing the historical fabric of the city centre with its originality. Hotel Topazz opened its doors in April 2012.

The building draws its height reference from the long row of buildings on Hoher Markt Square and leads its upper border via a distinctive rounded corner into Kramergasse. In this way, it shows its reverence for the previous building, whose facade was also characterised by a bold, rounded projection.

Hanging Hotel by Decodeine

Saturday, June 16th, 2012

Article source: Decodeine

The following project commissioned by Holden Manz & FOCUS gallery Cape Town, situated in South France Massif de L’ Esterel, uses architecture to dictate and choreograph our perceptions of immediate contexts and environments.

The hanging platforms offer a rest for rock climbers, a pause enabling them to enjoy the views and environment for a longer period before setting off on their journey once more. The surfaces are partly embedded partly protruding from the existing rock face structure. A grid of borehole foundations injected into the rock face expand into the existing granite, clamping the main body of the structure into the façade.

Cascais Citadel Hotel in Portugal by Gonçalo Byrne Arquitectos

Saturday, June 9th, 2012

Article source: Joao Morgado – Architectural Photography

This luxury hotel, Pousada de Cascais, is set within the walls of the historical fortress, the emblematic 16th century Citadel of Cascais, in the centre of Cascais. It is a place where ancient meets modern, and many of the rooms are dramatically set into the former barracks which makes each space a different experience, while others, more modern, enjoy spectacular views to the sea or over the huge internal patio spaces.

Khach San Thien Thuy Hotel in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam by CMV Architects

Friday, June 8th, 2012

Article source: CMV Architects

The Water Hotel is laid up of 25 plants, five of them destined exclusively to hotel use. A building with an ultramodern image, as well as real and viable, that must adapt to the multifunctionality of the program, allowing the sufficient versatility to guarantee its effectiveness in front of any flexible use. For that so, a volume of two towers of square plant is made and joined by its diagonal. One of the towers is, exclusively, for hotel use, whereas the other lodges the offices and administration premises. This way we emphasize the height and slenderness of the building and at the same time it shows a diversified variety of shades and perspectives.

URBANAUTS | STREET LOFTS in VIENNA, AUSTRIA by Christian Knapp & Jonathan Lutter

Sunday, May 27th, 2012

Article source: Christian Knapp & Jonathan Lutter

Authentic experience has become an important value to urban travellers. Individual impression instead of mainstream sightseeing is what motivates modern tourists today to explore major cities. A new hotel concept now offers the infrastructure for trips off the beaten track.

The idea is simple and convincing. Due to its proximity to the city life Vienna’s ground floor zone symbolises an area of unique urban character. At the same time massive vacancies of city shops urge for their revitalisation. URBANAUTS bridges both aspects using vacant boutiques as authentic habitat for travellers. Former shops become central hotel rooms – URBANAUTS Street Lofts.

The concept is unique. Hotel is no longer regarded in terms of a self-sufficient building. Based on the theory of the horizontal hotel it stretches out over the city. Fragmentation is the keyword. Rooms are spread within a district, adding up to segments in different parts of the city.

A quiet oasis right in the middle of the city centre. Entered directly from the street the lofts offer a most private and discreet space right next to where city life happens. Spacious and comfortably furnished they create a new category of Boutique Lofts among the family of Boutique Hotels. Their strong connection to the city is always sensible through the art work of local artists who are invited to account for the past of the loft.

Downtown LA Hotel in Los Angeles, California by XTEN Architecture

Sunday, May 27th, 2012

Article source: XTEN Architecture

This new 65,000sf hotel is conceived as a monolithic concrete structure, carved by a system of slots and slices that bring light, air and views deep into the building.

The site is an infill parcel in downtown Los Angeles which measures just 50×150 feet. The hotel is freestanding, surrounded on all sides by alleys and streets. This allows for slots to be cut into the façade, which contrast with and dematerialize the otherwise monolithic quality of the building.
