Design showcase: Top five sculptural spaces

by | 28 May 2021 | Design

We highlight five hotels that stand out thanks to the inclusion of striking features like circular ponds and geometric marble silhouettes in our latest TOPHOTELDESIGN exclusive.

This week, we’re venturing into magnificent sculpturally shaped spaces.

These structures place guests into a multisensory experience where massive curves and counter-curves directly impact the visitor’s physical perception of the room.

Starting with Zaha Hadid Architects, the pioneer of fluid forms, City of Dreams in Macau pushes the boundaries of architecture while channelling China’s exquisite traditions of jade carvings.

Next, three projects that are closely influenced by nature’s kinetic forms: ocean waves, wing-like motifs and circular grandiose ponds.

Last but not least, an intimate lounge area by Yabu Pushelberg with enveloping layers of geometric marble silhouettes.

Dramatic, bold and courageous, these designs bend space and light to lure guests into curious journeys.

Diseño: Los cinco mejores espacios escultóricos

by | 28 May 2021 | XX Archive Spanish

Les mostramos cinco hoteles que destacan por la inclusión de elementos llamativos como estanques circulares y siluetas geométricas de mármol en nuestra nueva exclusiva de TOPHOTELDESIGN.

Esta semana nos adentramos en los magníficos espacios escultóricos.

Estas estructuras sumergen a los visitantes en una experiencia multisensorial en la que las enormes curvas y contracurvas influyen directamente en la percepción física de la persona.

Empezamos por Zaha Hadid Architects, estudio pionero de las formas fluidas, que con el City of Dreams, en Macao, supera los límites de la arquitectura al tiempo que canaliza las exquisitas tradiciones chinas de las tallas de jade.

A continuación, tres proyectos estrechamente influenciados por las formas cinéticas de la naturaleza: olas, motivos en forma de alas y estanques circulares espectaculares.

Por último, un salón privado de Yabu Pushelberg con capas envolventes de siluetas geométricas de mármol.

Dramáticos, atrevidos y valientes, estos diseños doblan el espacio y la luz para atraer a los huéspedes a un nuevo sentido.
