Ultramodern Meets Utilitarianism At Berlin’s Hotel Q [Pics]
Architecture firm GRAFT creates a feat of multi-purpose chic -- a hotel where support walls meld into chairs.
Berlin’s super sleeper, Hotel Q, melds design and functionality together to create an architectural feedback loop of furnishing and function. Graft describes the unique project on their website thus:
GRAFT designed a hotel landscape that challenges the classical spatial canon through the folding of topographical structures. With a tectonic logic, a folded horizontal landscape distorts and creates hybrid zones with double functional occupancies. An oblique object is simultaneously a separating wall and usable furniture. The lifted floor is surface for circulation or the beginning of a space that has emerged from underneath the skin of the building.
