Design showcase: Top 5 corridor designs

by | 03 Aug 2022 | Design

This week’s collaboration with TOPHOTELDESIGN highlights the hotel hallways which make moving from one area to the next a fascinating exploration.

We have chosen five properties which focus on the journey as well as the destination. These corridors not only lead to other places, but also become areas worthy of attention in themselves. 

Creative corridors

The challenge of transforming a hallway into a full physical and emotional experience involves exceptional creativity.

We believe that exceptional interior design is all about the desire to transform a visitor’s everyday actions into memorable adventures. These five projects reveal a new thrilling level in routine places.

Quality quintet

The Toggle Hotel was selected for its optically playful two-toned colour concept, while A Meticulously Designed Bamboo Lodge stands out for craftsmanship that guides visitors through a bamboo wonderland.

The Shiroya Hotel was picked for its multi-directional stairs and pathways that elevate light and concrete into  something absolutely contemporary and new.

Our fourth selection, Hotel Indigo Dubai Downtown, showcases a deep blue corridor with intricate carpets, and our quintet is completed with Hoshinoya Guguan’s poignant theatrical lighting and roof installations.
