IBIS STYLES HOTEL
Arad / 2015-2016 / 5.500 mp / P+9E / 2.700.000 EUR / private investor
This project started as an invitation to a design competition for an Ibis Styles Hotel, Accor’s internationally renowned francize, in one of Arad’s industrial areas.
The building establishes itself as a beacon in the low-rise buildings of the area and its visibility becomes its biggest asset. We aimed towards an ethereal, light and slender high-rise that encloses the rooms and that offers a dynamic, shimmering experience as you drive by it or walk around it.
The gathering spaces – the conference rooms, restaurants, bars, play-areas and waiting-areas, all central to the Ibis Styles business model – are rendered in a heavier, more grounded volume, enclosed in a weathering steel skin with openings and detailing coherent within the industrial theme.
