DESIGNING HOSPITALITY SPACES IN TIMES OF CIRCULATION INDUCING FEELINGS
Chaotic circulation, sequence of thresholds, spaces of separation and connection defining alleyways to buildings.
Particular architectural elements transitioning the user through different routes, navigating them spatially from an enclosed narrow dark pathway into an open lit airy hallway.
These emotional architectural sequences and moments that were experienced through our walk were so rich that I readdressed their implementation and had them drive the design decisions of this project.
Circulation has the power to induce different feelings that are specified depending on the functions it leads to. The circulation around the reception area, for example, could be open and welcoming, encouraging guests to explore and engage. Conversely, the circulation leading to guest rooms could be more intimate and private, creating a sense of tranquility and exclusivity.
By carefully planning and designing the circulation pathways within this boutique hotel, I was able to create a unique and immersive experience that would cater to the specific emotions and needs of the guests.
