BIT DESIGN HOTEL
The inspiration for the design is based on minimal and jappanese air, oriented to young mind people which don't feel comfortable in standard chained-brands hotels, looking for a personal contemporary aproach.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
This is a highly custom designed hotel.
The lobby concept design is composed by a folded wood tape wich run from walls to ceiling playing to the building facade idea.
Each room by floor has been customized with a particular color defined by the foot warmer cover and a particular wall-covering mural.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The wooden millwork in the rooms are very simple folded “tapes” which compose the desk with bench-low tables in a similar manner to the main lobby concept. The corridors reinforce the idea of the diversity by an asymmetrical composition in finishing and lighting concept.
PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Design Process: six month. Built Process: one year.
Location: 265 Ramon Fernandez Street
Montevideo, Uruguay. South America.

Hotel, design, interior
The main inspiration idea was the differentiation. Each room wit its own character, assymetrical corridor image, custom details, surprise...
The challenge was to reach a concept to match architectural building inspiration and conceive the interior architecture not as a decorative makeup but as a full integrated building desing expression.
