Hull, working with Manor Properties to create a new three star brand hotel, using their Hull site as a test project. The hotel positioning is conservative open market rather than a specific user group and the design is more mature approach using a modern timeless set of colours and feature. The hotel was designed using a modular approach and allowed for various arrangements of units to fit with different site acquisitions.New Apart-hotel concept, working with hotel experts HoCoSo we were invited to an international design competition for SV Hotel Group to provide a modular approach to refurbishment using our component based design approach for the apart-hotel sector. The criteria to bring compact room designed into the apart-hotel sector was challenging and we looked to utilise a concept of spatial transformation for each room setting. The design involved sliding / folding fittings to change from a sofa to a bed, from a storage unit to a table. The component based design involved breaking the room into components which allowed the units to be prefabricated off site and installed using bathroom pod technology.
