Design showcase: Top five ceilings

by | 11 Aug 2021 | Design

We profile a handpicked selection of hotels, from Berlin to Montreal, that elevate the guest experience through their innovative ceiling designs in our latest TOPHOTELDESIGN feature.

The ceiling, also known as the ‘fifth wall’, can have a variety of roles in interior design. Apart from the usual one (hiding roof construction details), it can support or lead an entire design concept.

Clever concepts that raise the roof

While most ceilings are meant to disappear and fade into the guest’s field of view, today’s list of five ceiling designs was selected for taking advantage of that blank-canvas opportunity.

There’s W Montreal for its unforgettable textured ceiling reminiscent of the waves of the surrounding waters of Montreal, highlighted by spot-on rounded light installations.

JW Marriot Marco Island Beach Resort for its one-ok-a-kind wooden structure that dwells amongst mountains, rock formations and topographic landscapes.

Holiday Inn Resort Maoshan Hot-Spring for its backlit ceiling installation that places guests below a mesmerising and soothing canopy.

Nhow Berlin for its bold and colourful sculptural ceiling piece that makes the fuchsia accents from the rug and seats pop even more.

And 25Hours Hotel The Circle for its magnificent concentric-circle ceiling design that not only acts as the axis of the front desk area but also dialogues perfectly with the floor and, of course, the name of the hotel.

Diseño: los cinco mejores techos

by | 11 Aug 2021 | XX Archive Spanish

En nuestra nueva exclusiva de TOPHOTELDESIGN presentamos una selección de hoteles, desde Berlín hasta Montreal, que elevan la experiencia de los huéspedes gracias a sus innovadores diseños de techos.

El techo, también conocido como la “quinta pared”, puede desempeñar diversas funciones en el diseño de interiores. Aparte de la habitual (ocultar los detalles de construcción del techo), puede servir de apoyo o liderar todo un concepto de diseño.

Conceptos inteligentes que levantan el techo

Mientras que la mayoría de los techos están pensados para desaparecer y desvanecerse en el campo de visión del huésped, la lista de hoy de cinco diseños de techos fue seleccionada por aprovechar esa oportunidad de lienzo en blanco.

El W Montreal, por su inolvidable techo texturizado que recuerda a las olas de las aguas circundantes de Montreal, realzado por instalaciones de luz redondeadas.

El JW Marriot Marco Island Beach Resort por su estructura de madera única que se encuentra entre montañas, formaciones rocosas y paisajes topográficos.

Holiday Inn Resort Maoshan Hot-Spring por su instalación de techo retroiluminado que sitúa a los huéspedes bajo un dosel hipnótico y relajante.

Nhow Berlin por su atrevida y colorida pieza escultórica en el techo, que hace resaltar aún más los acentos fucsia de la alfombra y los asientos.

Y 25Hours Hotel The Circle por su magnífico diseño de techo en forma de círculo concéntrico que no sólo actúa como eje de la zona de recepción, sino que dialoga perfectamente con el suelo y, por supuesto, con el nombre del hotel.
