Hotels that give you a taste of the rainbow.
Here at Daily Design Idea, we really love designers who embrace color, so it’s no surprise that the following hotel designs have caught our attention:
First, via We Heart (May 25, 2010):
A new hotel design by dutch firm WAM architecten is, for better or worse, celebrating the city of Zaandam’s “iconic green wooden houses” through their “fantastically unique design for Inntel Hotels‘ new property,” located just outside of Amsterdam in the Netherlands. Wilfried van Winden, the project’s lead designer, “has created a truly unique structure by creating the illusion that various examples of [Zaandam's] traditional houses, ranging from a notary’s residence to a worker’s cottage, are randomly stacked upon one another.”
Second, via Apartment Therapy (May 19, 2010):
“If a trip to Brussels in in your future you can now stay at a new hotel from the company that is all about celebrating color, Pantone… Designed by Belgian interior designer Michel Penneman and Belgian architect Olivier Hannaert, each of the hotel’s seven floors are enlightened by different color palettes to complement guests’ emotions with distinctive hues – whether vivid or subdued.”
July 21′s daily design idea is is hotel design a particularly good field for color experimentation? While I’m not sure if I would want to live permanently in either of these environments, it would be a fun vacation from the semi-neutral color palette I have at home.
