Hotel Lobby Design Concept

The Satellite Hotel gets an interior make-over

designATplay presents a interior design concept for the lobby of the Satellite Hotel!

Our presentation to the Satellite hotel was a success and we are so excited to see where it leads! Have a look at our walk through and get a feel for the space and the elements in it.

The concept for this design is based on the iconic shape of the building itself as well as its distinctive multi-directional character. Throughout the space the geometric shapes apparent in the architectural design are integrated and reflected in the layout of the space, built-ins, finishes and interior material selections. The

intention is a classic interior that reflects the time period yet sets a contemporary tone. The dissolved facade on the exterior is mimicked on the inside to create a strong connection to its structure. The relocated reception offers sight lines in all directions with a point of sale for the proposed integrated kiosk. Way-finding and circulation patterns are achieved through a layout that lends itself to an immediate understanding of the space by clearly defined focal areas and elements as orientation points.

A strong emphasis on the number 3 which plays a significant role in the building’s use and architecture informed the design which resulted in a comfortable interior that offers a welcoming and multi-functional space for employees, visitors, and inhabitants; an interior as unique as its architecture.

This morning I was part of a networking group in the Garden of the Gods Country Club.

Here is my view from our table... this made the exciting new connections and conversations I had even more spectacular. Blessed to be here and have the opportunity to help this community thrive!

material_play - INFRA-RED HEATING by Annabelle Guldner

TECHNOLOGIES FOR LIVING ENVIRONMENTS

If renovation or new build this is a great alternative to conventional heating methods

INFRA-RED HEATING is a great method of heating. It provides a wonderfully comfortable warmth and can be integrated everywhere, where additional heat is needed. Infra-red heating creates a high indoor air quality and an energy efficient heating source due to healthy radiant heating. This technology directly heats bodies and objects, infra-red rays that meet bodies or objects are immediately converted into heat. That way air vortexes are avoided rendering the indoor air less dusty. The principle of infra-red heating also has a healing and positive effect on our bodies.

furniture_play - midcentury transformations by Annabelle Guldner

Remember this one? I finally had a chance to fully transform this gem! Some oil, 2 paint colors and a metallic spray paint did the trick! I love the result and can't wait to get started on the other piece!

furniture_play NEED A GUEST BED? A QUICK AND CREATIVE SOLUTION... by Annabelle Guldner

furniture_play A QUICK AND UNIQUE GUEST BED DESIGN
We had just moved to Colorado Springs and were expecting our first house guests there. Having moved from Savannah, Georgia to Colorado we downsized and took as little as possible, therefore only one original and custom master bed went with us... leaving us short of a guest bed.

Yes we could've bought an inexpensive bedframe and mattress at IKEA... but what's the fun in that?? Instead we bought some concrete block, a couple of 2x6's and 2 sheets of plywood.... voila! It's comfy, unique and original! It took us about 4 hours of our time and some imagination! Our guests love it!

furniture_play PANTON by Annabelle Guldner

furniture_play PANTON CHAIR
The Panton chair designed by Verner Panton in the 60's and from the very first moment that I saw it has been one of my favorite classic chairs. It was the first moulded plastic chair of its kind! It's a masterpiece of technology as well as ergonomic design and its iconic shape and forward thinking shape makes it a perfect addition to modern and contemporary interiors. It has been produced in collaboration with Vitra starting in 1967 and at the vitra design museum in Weil am Rhein you get to indulge in the fascinating world of this and other pieces of furniture design history!

A TWIST ON RECLAIMED WOOD
check out the work of @tristantiteux he uses relcaimed wood in an exciting way. instead of only using pure wood species he encourages the incorporation of leftover plywood, osb, mdf and other engineered wood products that fill up our landfills and hurt our environment. the outcome are fun and innovative furniture pieces that represent a thoughtful and sustainable process to help our planet survive.

Coco tiles, made from coconut shell chips. It's a normally discarded leftover material after harvesting, and @kirei.design.materialscreated an innovative and playful material from it. Beautifully textured tiles in a variety of patterns and sizes. They can be easily cut and applied! What a fun and sustainable tile material!
