a boutique hotel is a place where the appealing factor is not the touristic scenery but architecture itself. this was the case for a small hungarian countryside destination, ‘butik design rooms‘, where the owners wished to transform their existing guesthouse into an inviting attraction with the highest demands. this request was fulfilled by adam singer and his budapest-based singer design studio.

the exterior and the interior also reflect contemporary signs seasoned with the designers’ belief in interesting shapes, the use of natural, enduring elements, and the communication with the environment. due to the strict local regulations, the building itself has maintained its original aesthetic with the walls drilled for glazing and linear openings added to the roof. materials used are quartzite stone, antiqued flame-burnt and double-tainted three-dimensional wooden boards, rusty steel cladding, and glass. remnants of the previous structure are visible through the grey roof and grey plastered façade, which is accompanied by a large spa-pool and various terraces.

the scheme is driven by its redefinition of the interior language. with only six rooms, singer saw the potential to make each of them diverse. the hotel is situated near the artificial tisza lake, which led to research in local uniqueness, the big plain’s country life, and the savage landscape surrounding the water. the analysis proved to be successful, as six concepts were identified that could correspond with the suites.

‘oak room’

wood was used wherever possible

 

 

 

in the ‘oak room’, everything possible was made of wood – the washbasin, the lamps, the wall coverings, the armchair, and the rug. in addition, decorations were collected from all over the world in order to capture the essence of the forrest. its special ambience comes from the cozy materials and the contemporary spirit, which, according the architects, makes it one of the most liked rooms.

‘water room’

 

 

 

the’ water room’ is defined by its colors, cool temper, lights, and changing reflections that all recall the nearby lake the relaxing depth of the blue shades creates a surreal atmosphere of silence and intimacy. the waving ceiling of different lengths of twines can crown completes the presentation.

‘ice room’

the ceiling is defined by folds and creases

 

 

 

the specialties of the ‘ice room’ are glossy white resin floor, shimmering painted walls, and the softly lit artificial reed composition put between frozen-looking etched glass walls, which reveal their content from the shower and the toilet. bedside tables are ancient sledges and the glazing of the wardrobe is like frosted ice sheet, while all the lights are chosen of the coolest LED options. in compliment, warm balance is given back with thick brown blankets, tissues, and a soft fur-rug.

‘fire room’

 

 

 

 

the ‘fire room’ is based on the rusty wall cladding, which is the continuation of the exterior façade. the visible furniture parts are made of burnt, carbonized, real wood and the yellow lights dropped on light-flare glass prints imitate cracking fire. on the other side of the translucent shower wall is an ethanol fireplace.

‘bird room’

 

 

 

the ‘bird room’ establishes itself as a spacious residences with little furniture to serve the needs of disabled guests. the bedside lamps, made of cages, are suspended in front of a custom-designed wallpaper that zooms on bird plumes. as the studio found every details to be important, the lamp on the writing table is made of plumes and stands on copper bird feet near a a jacobsen swan chair.

‘boat room’

the boat room pays homage to hungarian traditions

 

 

 

the ‘boat room’ is the biggest of the six, as its origins can be found in hungarian traditions and rural life reinterpreted for the tastes of present day society. a jacuzzi-tub is built in a real boat, which stands in the center of the view. the king-size baldachin bed uses mosquito net, the bedside lamp is made of authentic milk cans hanging on traditional forged iron cantilevers. wardrobe handles are rows, the washbasin is a real cauldron, the walls are whitewashed, and the floor is rammed under the white resin. the bathroom is dominated by a shadoof painting printed on the shower.
