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.

Hotel in Reykjavik, Iceland by OOIIO Architecture

Wednesday, May 9th, 2012

Article source: OOIIO Architecture

In Reykjavik, Iceland capital they wanted to build a big new hotel in Ingolfstorg, a public existing plaza in Kvosin, the city historical  center, very close to the Iceland Parliament.  The program was asking for a way too big building that couldn´t work well with the existing city pattern. There are no big buildings  on this area.  OOIIO Architecture team decided to break the big hotel into 2 hotels. This decision make all the program to work much better,  not only because the size of the buildings is more suitable with the historical center, also because the client could build now the  buildings in different phases, and if he wants, use building A as a 5 stars hotel and building B as a 4 stars hotel, so the scheme is  more  flexible for its economical benefits.

Nobis Hotel in Stockholm, Sweden by Claesson Koivisto Rune Architects

Wednesday, April 18th, 2012

Article source: Claesson Koivisto Rune Architects

Towards the end of the 19th century, every self-respecting city erected what it considered to be its biggest and best hotel. It was usually named Grand Hotel and was more often than not paid for out of the private pockets of wealthy barons. These hotels are often still in use today and have a charm that maybe only a century-old ideal of quality can give.
