Hotels are increasingly concentrating on offering memorable experiences through design features from soft and luxurious and deliberately artistic kitsch through to no-fuss minimal. This book deals with this topic.
Hotels are increasingly concentrating on offering memorable experiences through unique design features from soft and luxurious and deliberately artistic kitsch through to no-fuss minimal. Hotel Interior Structures presents a world-wide range of innovative hotel designs that illustrate all these different aspects and bring to light the work of leading architects and designers including Michael Graves, Philippe Starck and John Rocha. It gives particular attention to design features - colour, light, materials, use of space - and the use of particular furnishings and objects in these innovative interiors. - Following the success of the original hardback version published in February 2001, since which it has virtually sold out, this paperback edition brings the same inspirational and stunning visual content at an even more affordable price - Focuses on the treatment of interiors and the many options available to solve the interior design challenge on a large-scale professional level - Highlights the different styles of hotels that have emerged and how the designers have aimed to complement the very intention of their spaces through their interior design
