Project Brief

Renovated from an old hotel, it is currently presenting the power of innovations in each space. In the lobby, the navigation chart manifests the imagination of ocean. Meanwhile, the bow artwork is accompanied by the LOFT style, black iron net ceiling, white surfboard, and geometric shapes. The lustrous floor draws the finishing touch on figuratively bringing tourists to an exotic tropical national.

Project Need

“Traveling is to adventure what accommodation is to achievement,” a quotation being part of the design plan in this hotel. In the study room, the blue walls and bookshelves made of water pipes show unlimited interactions among people, and reserve extra space for exhibition. Outside the elevator, the soft striped carpet presents the direction leading people to bedrooms. The design style composed of the sailing adventure spirit unfolds the journey of happiness.
