Design showcase: Top five elevator halls
We pick out five hotels around the world, from Vienna to Hanoi, that have turned this most practical of features into a real talking point in our latest TOPHOTELDESIGN exclusive.
This week, we dive into otherworldly elevator halls where guests will find themselves lost in the attractiveness of their surroundings.
Elevating the guest experience
Picture this: you’re on the first floor of a 100-storey building and you’re waiting for the elevator to get through 50 storeys. You’re staring at the floor, checking your phone, looking at anything that will make time go faster.
In this week’s top five selection of elevator halls, we explore outstanding designs that make time fly.
