An invitation to explore
Commissioned to cater for a growing number of private hire functions, a jewel-like enclosed multipurpose event space forms an intriguing architectural feature within the hotel lobby. Visible from outside the hotel, this volume is a haptic sculpture that invites guests to walk around it to observe changes in form. The volume also forms a navigation point, visible to guests that occupy the atrium-facing rooms and from the elevators. It is designed to be a surprise; an object of interest, awaiting discovery. The structure and aesthetics arose from a set of experimental Dsearch digital design practices; from advanced modelling to direct file-to-factory delivery.
