The space was designed by the firm to convey the atmosphere of a residential home, in stark contrast to the bustling urban district in which the hotel is located. Working closely with the hotel operators, the lobby lounge was arranged with versatile seating to encourage mingling, and to also suit diverse requirements such as business gatherings, cocktails and light dining.
With a design that adapts easily from day to night, the lounge features a versatile bookcase that doubles as a display shelf and library to give off a relaxed vibe. This design feature also works as a subtle divider, without entirely closing off any area.
To keep in step with the hotel’s new brand identity, the firm opted to forego the typical lobby lounge piano, and instead opted for a more contemporary “living room” environment, including a warm and fresh colour palette.
