The 9-story hotel, branded a Best Western Plus, features 170 guestrooms, restaurant with outdoor patio, roof terrace and green roof. The chevron-shape of the building embraces the park behind the hotel and creates added visual interest to the architectural form. Its anodized aluminum façade - with a warm, earthy tone and irregular texture - contrasts with the greenery of the park.
A transparent ground floor establishes a welcoming presence for the hotel and includes a reception area, lounge and large restaurant with outdoor seating.
Guestrooms, efficiently positioned on double-loaded corridors, measure 16.5 square meters. Junior suites accommodate guests needing more space for a longer stay with 24.5 square meters. Modular panels with varied open and closed elements establish a pattern and enliven the façade.
Designing the hotel in the chevron shape created an opportunity for 3XN to incorporate a small niche at each room entry, which provides a sense of arrival for guests. The slightly angled ‘arms’ of the chevron also allowed enough space for a comfortable lounge chair in each room, in addition to the bed and desk. 3XN collaborated with Note Design Studio on the interior design.
