the proposal, designed by ferminnan + spagnoletta architects, aims to become an emblematic hotel in berlin, located between alexanderplatz and berlin hackescher markt. the project, conceived as overlapping volumes, provides a convinced geometry that politely connects with its surroundings. the metal-patterned façades allow the building’s skin to breathe, to serve as a filter for incoming and outgoing light, and to show its impressive volumetric shape at the same time.

two hundred and sixty apartments and rooms are distributed within the building, with a variety of typologies, adapted for the client’s different needs. stylish interiors provide warm atmospheres bathed in light. the bedroom’s design took into consideration three important points: originality, luxury, and freedom. these keywords were taken into consideration to create a strong identity blended with an ideal ambiance that result in a relaxing stay.
