Design showcase: Top five bedroom concepts
In our latest collaboration with TOPHOTELDESIGN, we explore properties from London to Tokyo that have put their own novel spin on traditional hotel accommodation.
Layouts, or the way in which parts are arranged or laid out, play a crucial role in experiencing and physically feeling a space or room.
Rethinking the in-room experience
The equilibrium of energy and main masses that compose a guestroom should be balanced enough to make the guest feel calm and relaxed. Sometimes, that can be hard to achieve if the room is too small (or too big).
This week, we’re exploring five projects that have arranged their guestrooms in unique and innovative ways, breaking the boundaries of stereotypical hotel rooms and what they can be.
Starting with CitizenM London Shoreditch Hotel. It’s crucial to point out the fact that this was one of the pioneers of minimalist luxury; a room with the width of a bed and the necessary length to accommodate a bathroom and desk, while maintaining the design and standards of a high-end hotel.
Toggle Hotel Suidobashi, a project inspired by the idea of an on / off switch that toggles between work and leisure, surprises guests with wonderful two-tone and two-storey rooms.
CityHub Copenhagen replaces traditional rooms with 215 ‘hubs’ that optimise space remarkably, while providing guests with state-of-the-art communal spaces.
Trunk Hotel brings a fresh perspective on travelling in groups, with rooms that can accommodate more than four people.
And The Standard, London, similar to the other projects mentioned before, comfortably fits the bed into very tiny spaces, where guests wake up to a perfect view of the River Thames.
