FROM PROTECTED HOSPITAL BUILDING TO A UNIQUE BOUTIQUE HOTEL WITH CHARACTER AND CLASS
The interior of The Sweet apartment hotel is designed by Siv Amundsen-Lack at Fablab Design, who last year won «Best Office Interior Europe 2019» in the same competition.
- The biggest challenge in this project was to realise a modern hotel with all its contemporary comfort and functionality, whilst also protecting and integrating the historical features of the building. Of course we also had to meet all relevant building construction standards. Finding this balance required detailed historical research, into the building and its neighbourhood, as well as reconstructing colour palettes and painting techniques and materials" says the designer.
Sample tests were performed to pinpoint the correct colour palette of 100 years ago, and to ensure that all detailing was historically accurate.
"Fablab Design adapted new furnishings and decor to blend with the buildings history, and we have designed all the beds, bathrooms, cabinets and kitchens ourselves to create the unique interior", Siv tells us.
