Hotel, Offices, Landscaping
HotOff is an amalgamation of a Hotel/Office leaving the possibility open to define future changes.
Reducing the noise impact of the highway, in the close proximity, and keeping the vistas from the city center towards the surrounding landscape open, we defined a slim contour rising out of the site. HotOff is the result of reading the urban context and landscape and translating it into a design that inhabits the site carefully.
Due to the overlapping functions between Hotel and Offices the choice to place either one of the two or combine them into the project is possible. Thus, creating more options than either limiting the possibilities for future use of the building.
What this design shows is that with a high flexibility and future oriented design you can provide an intervention that captures the eye. Providing different facilities for different users provides a wider acceptance of a design, not only for the tourist staying there but also for the citizens.
