Design showcase: Top five front door designs
We check out five hotels around the world that have turned their front doors into statement design features in our latest TOPHOTELDESIGN exclusive.
Doors symbolically and physically stand between here and there, between the known and the unknown. They connect the inner world with the outer, and the waking world with the sleeping one.
A gateway to new experiences
Doors can present themselves and what’s behind them in multiple ways; today’s selection of front door designs suggests distinctive dialogues with the interior of the hotel and the voyager.
Conrad Tianjin, overflowing with art-nouveau influences from the 1920s Jazz Age, connects past and present together with its unquestionably grandiose front gate.
Closely influenced by the cordial spirit of its location, Ibis Styles Tbilisi Center’s transparent façade and playful colossal sheep act as an open invitation into a social hub, where everyone can comfortably connect with each other or simply relax.
Capella Hanoi’s front gate gives visitors clues about what will happen once they walk inside; an experience that can best be described as surreal time travel back into the glorious decade of the 1920s.
Katamama’s mysterious, enigmatic and seductive entrance lures visitors into a hidden world of Indonesian culture and craftsmanship.
And Baccarat Hotel & Residencies New York creates the perfect balance between showing and not showing the treasures that lie inside, attracting guests with its resplendent dazzles of warm light.
