Hotel Architecture : Building
Contemporary Accommodation Developments + Interiors from around the world
We’ve selected what we feel are the key examples of Hotel Buildings. We aim to include buildings that are either of top quality or interesting, or ideally both.
We cover completed buildings, new building designs, architectural exhibitions and architecture competitions across the world. The focus is on contemporary Hotel buildings but information on traditional buildings is also welcome.

The hotel is located at Kenting in the southernmost part of Taiwan.

Hotel Pupp – 1 Jul 2013
A withdrawal in the middle of the city, away from the hustle and bustle, is made possible. From the outside the tripartite interlocked structure is supplied with a special plaster (in German called “Besenputz”), like the residences close to the city, but is pushed to the fore with the colour pure white. The building comes to life with its cantilevers, with its shadow play in the façade. In the interior the colour white runs through, but this time coarse-grained, tough, cave-like, and can be found in the illuminated spaces and paths as well as in the rooms.
Hotel Centar, Novi Sad – 26 Jun 2013
photo : Rade Kovac Mitarh
Hotel is located across the beginning of the main pedestrian zone in Novi Sad and across of the Serbian National Theatre, as a dominant point in space. It was conceived as a cubic form, and follows years of research on the topics: surface depth, layers of membranes. Location of the hotel is very exposed and has dominant role in the city boulevard.

Hotel Panorama – 4 Jun 2013
A reworking of a traditional hotel – but has the redevelopment gone far enough? Once could imagine a more dynamic intervention, but here is what the architects say: “…the intervention is a constructive gesture using the contrasts of the existing. Inspiration and commitment resulted from strong links between tradition and modernity, inside and outside, cold and hot, before and after…we worked like archaelogists by interweaving old and new in a very dynamic way.”

Hotel Wiesergut – 7 Mar 2013
Hotel Wiesergut in Hinterglemm / Salzburger Land has re-opened after a complex renovation and extension.

Monika Gogl therefore worked very consciously with contrasting materials such as local wood, natural stone, granite, glass and exposed concrete.

Clarion Hotel & Congress, Trondheim, Norway
Architects: Space Group

Clarion Hotel & Congress Trondheim – 28 Feb 2013
Unlike the classical American and Asian hotel atrium where everything is exposed in a centralized and vertical, magnificent but one-dimensional experience under a glass cover – the lobby is here given a 3-dimensional and dynamic spatial experience with a programmed roof, and a sequence of shifts between glimpse and panorama, intimacy and spectacular exposure. The hotel becomes a landmark without front or backside – but oriented towards the city and the fjord for optimal views in all directions.

Greek Hotel Building – 31 Aug 2011
How could one revive vernacular architecture in such an exceptional setting as Imerovigli, Santorini, with its view of the Caldera, opposite the Skaros rock? Generally rooms to rent at the Caldera simulate the vernacular by cloning indefinitely vaulted roofs.
