The Look of Boutique: Stellar European Hotels | Projects | Interior Design

The Look of Boutique: Stellar European Hotels | Projects | Interior Design | Interiosity | Scoop.it
Five small hotels caught Interior Design's eye. For mountainside viewing of the aurora borealis, head to the bar lounge at the Ion Luxury Adventure Hotel by Minarc—it's in Iceland! Teresa Sapey Estudio de Arquitectura channeled the surrealist spirit of Salvador Dali for the Room Mate Pau Hotel in Barcelona. And a hotel and spa in Monteigas, Portrual, references the oxidized sheet-steel faces of the region's traditional houses (Pedro Brigida Arquitectos painted the buildings at Casa das Penhas Douradas Design Hotel and Spa to match). Meanwhile, nautical stripes, ash built-ins, and distressed-oak floorboards scream on the beach on the Watergate Bay Hotel in the U.K., the work of Household. And don't forget Seifried & Mack's work on Hotel Scholl in Germany, which sports curvaceous furniture, exposed showers, and arresting artwork that's purely contemporary.1. Firm: Seifried & Mack.
Project: Hotel Scholl, Schwäbisch Hall, Germany.
Standout: In a half- timbered house from the 15th century, curvaceous furniture, exposed showers, and arresting artwork are purely contemporary.

Please Don't Feed the Animals: Das Stue Hotel | Projects | Interior Design

Please Don't Feed the Animals: Das Stue Hotel | Projects | Interior Design | Interiosity | Scoop.it
King Friedrich Wilhelm IV donated the first animals for the Zoologischer Garten Berlin. That was in 1844. In 1940, it got a neighbor, the Royal Danish Embassy, as a part of Adolf Hitler’s Germania capital-building project. An embassy until 1978, then sold to the public housing authority, the neo classical landmark by Johann Emil Schaudthas now become the luxury boutique hotel Das Stue, meaning the living room in Danish.Axthelm Rolvien Architekten gut-renovated the former embassy, patched its damaged limestone facade, and pressure-washed it. “There were bullet holes from World War II,” Henner Rolvien notes. He and Annette Axthelm also constructed an addition bringing the total key-count to 80.The cantilevered six-story addition is concrete and glass. “The idea was to make it as transparent as possible,” Axthelm says. “Guests can watch the animals in the zoo, like a safari.” A Mediterranean restaurant and a pool area on the ground level of the addition are among Das Stue’s public spaces by Interior Design Hall of Fame member Patricia Urquiola. Her firm, Studio Urquiola, also handled the bar, which connects the addition to the embassy building and, in the latter, the lobby, the reception area, the main lounge, and several small “library” lounges.As if escaped from the zoo, animals are everywhere. In the travertine-clad lobby, Urquiola installed a 4-foot-long bronze crocodile underneath a constellation of pinpoint LEDs. In reception, a bird-and-tree pattern covers part of the ceiling. Colorful chicken-wire sculptures of a giraffe and gorillas hang out in the lounge. Footstools in the shape of rhinos and hippos graze in the libraries. “The animals contrast with the elegant austerity of the original building,” Urquiola says.Nature references take a more figurative form in the guest rooms, designed by LVG Arquitectura. Headboards and floorboards are oak. Copper clads accent walls.Furnishings by Urquiola, Arne Jacobsen, and others tends to the streamlined. “By minimizing the decoration, we made the view framed by the big windows the major focus of each room,” LVG Arquitectura principal Eugenia Linares says. The secondary focus could easily be the contemporary artworks, all from the private collection of one of the hotel’s owners. The subject? Animals, from orangutans to elephants.
