Design concept: Gekko House, Frankfurt

by | 09 Jun 2021 | Design, Design Concept

Our latest TOPHOTELDESIGN exclusive shines a light on the sophisticated urban aesthetic of the 2020-completed Gekko House, part of the Tribute Portfolio hotel collection.

Aided by its fresh and fun concept, Gekko House has made an immediate impression on Frankfurt’s hospitality scene.

Reflecting the spirit of the neighbourhood

Gekko House provides a new place to stay in the city’s burgeoning Gallus district, which is known for its warehouses and factories that have been successfully converted into theatres and music venues.

This new hotel reflects its location by encapsulating an indie spirit and urban aesthetic. Scharnberger Architekten und Ingenieure helped with the property’s architectural design and Frankfurt-based Morgen Interiors worked its magic on the interiors, taking inspiration from the hotel’s motto ‘life is crazy’.

The hotel’s guestrooms pair wooden flooring with concrete walls and design details like statement glass light fittings, velvet seating and olive-green furnishings. Each room benefits from floor-to-ceiling windows, as well as amenities including a Marshall Music Box and a Gekko House curated city guide; Laufen, meanwhile, supplied the property’s stylish bathrooms.

Vibrant social areas for guests and locals

Guests access the hotel’s entrance through a passage combining cherry wood panelling with tapestries and olive furniture. While in the lobby, they can pick up artisanal drinks and snacks, as well as local souvenirs, at The Gekko Späti shop.

Catering for both locals and hotel guests, the property instills characterful design and a lively ambiance into its restaurant and bar, Chicago Williams. This sociable space features an open kitchen, wooden floors, oak tables, deep red tones and attractive copper detailing.
