Colors Urban Hotel by Urban Soul Project

Home > Winners > #56962


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Colors Urban

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Hotel

INSPIRATION:
The interior design is developed around the idea of the thematic room. The themes (such as nature, music, cinema, comics, astronomy and books) make each and every room unique, differentiating them in regard to the furniture design, the colors of the flooring and the walls, the wallpapers and the graphic elements used.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The building has views both on Tsimiski and Agiou Mina streets. It has a three-parts facade with wide openings and pilasters, big interior height and a large central atrium. On the first floor, the administrative offices, the spa and auxiliary spaces are located. The rooms occupy three floors while there is a plan to extend to the fourth floor with suites as well. The furniture is made of metal and wood and it is tailor made for each room.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The division of each facade in three parts, defined the plan layout; three rooms in the front and back of every floor and a central one, which opens up to the atrium.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in March 2016 and finished in October 2016 in Thessaloniki.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Interior Space and Exhibition Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The unique architectural decorative elements of this listed building, along with the plastering of the ceiling, had to be preserved and remain apparent. It was this requirement that led to visible mechanical installations throughout the building. Furthermore, the copper-colored elevator and railings are a unique feature of the building.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The hotel is 1.160 square meters and is located in one of the most crowded streets of Thessaloniki.

TAGS:
renovation, listed building, hotel, boutique, hospitality, thematic rooms, colors, interior design

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
A special feature of the hotel is the bigger space allowance of each room, compared to the typical hotel rooms. This characteristic led to a new typology of layout, allowing the bed to be placed in the center of the room and the desk behind it, while open wardrobes and offices, as well as nooks used as nightstands, are used. The high ceilings allowed the placement of a second bed on top of the main one while the floor-to-ceiling windows to the full width of each room, open the rooms to the city view and enhance a wider feel of the space, even further.

CHALLENGE:
Colors Urban Hotel design had two challenges: working with a listed building which was designed by Hasid Fernandez and Jacques Pleyber in 1925, and the design of a contemporary hotel, up to the standards of the modern traveler.
