Playing with the five senses

Thanks to our design for the 130-room hotel in the centre of Reykjavik (Iceland), we also did the interior design project.
Following the idea of creating a cozy and comfortable building, we use wood as the most outstanding material.

It appears both in roofs and walls following the design direction of the facades singular wood “brise-soleils” to control the interior illumination. The rooftop acts as a public square to host both clients of the hotel and citizens and has also wooden floor. Thanks to its special shape you get the sensation of being on a boat deck, watching the historical city centre.

Wood is a material frequently used in construction in Iceland, therefore our wood comes from sustainable forests, fulfilling the quality and environmental requirements.

We combine warm wood with golden elements to express luxury and sophistication. These elements are fritted-metal panels with traditional Nordic graphic patterns. They are located covering the main interior elements, as staircases, vertical circulations or beds on the hotel rooms. Reflections and non direct lights in the interior of the hotel are strategically located to grab people’s attention trying to create a luxury and comfortable atmosphere inside this first class international hotel.
