design_play - CONCEPTUAL WALK-THROUGH by Annabelle Guldner

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.

art_play - FUNCTIONAL CUSTOM BIKE SIGN by Annabelle Guldner

Here is our custom bike sign we designed and made. This is for the lower bike tire rest and completes the bike hook system for the foyer renovation. We didn’t like the ones that came with it, so we made our own!

We love how it came out and would keep it for ourselves! But it'll work great in the foyer we transformed give it a unique and custom touch!

dwell_well - STAIRS THAT INSPIRE by Annabelle Guldner

Simplicity in design can be one of the most beautiful things. We love stair designs and innovative solutions for the concept of vertical circulation. Stairs are generally an overlooked design opportunity within a space and a home. Check out these great ideas on innovative, functional and fascinating details. These examples take functionality and aesthetics to the next level and use the stairs as a sculptural and integral design element that contributes to and sometimes dominates a space in a breathtaking way. We are all for new ideas and concepts for stairs and clients that are not afraid to be bold and creative!

furniture_play - A DESK AS UNIQUE AS ITS OWNER by Annabelle Guldner

furniture_play - A DIFFERENT APPROACH TO A BUILT-IN DESK
This desk was built for a young college student who needed a place to study, game, and work. The space lend itself to a long desk that gives him the surface for his gaming computer without being in the way, while offering a lot of knee space. The desk is uniquely shaped, with a futuristic touch and maximizing the space available. The shelves above mimic the desk form and seem to vanish into the wall, giving this desk its unique appearance. This desk was designed and built by designATplay, and we love how the functionality paired with such a distinct and interesting design.

bath_play WALL-HUNG TOILETS - NO-BRAINER by Annabelle Guldner

bath_play THE ADVANTAGES OF WALL-HUNG TOILETS

Why not have a wall-hung toilet? It's been a regular practice in Germany for  decades and there are numerous advantages:

1. Maintenance; cleaning is easy, sweep under the toilet, wipe over the wall, done! No complicated shapes to wipe because dust get caught everywhere on one piece or two piece toilets. 

2. Aesthetics; wall-hung toilets look great with simple lines due to disguised features and mechanisms, contributing to an overall feel of a pristine bathroom atmosphere. 

3. Durability; you know how many times I have changed or fixed the flushing mechanism on a one or two piece toilet? They break all the time, or don't work right! Mechanisms by Kohler, Duravit or many other companies don't break! They sit inside a wall and do what they are supposed to do. I have never had to fix the flushing mechanism on a wall-hung toilet.

4. Efficiency; two buttons clearly distinguish between two settings, number one and number two... Low flush technology will save you water on either of those settings. If there is only one button, typically the flushing can be stopped midway, as to only use as much water as absolutely needed, also a typically method in Germany and how I grew up.

Overall, for me it's a no-brainer... Yes it's a different technology and a little harder to install and yes, plumbers are going to complain about it, but it's worth it! All that is needed is enough wall cavity (which can be achieved in many different ways!) to install the piece.  Price is a little more expensive as well, but so is almost everything that works better or is made of better technology, looks always come into play too. Once again, that upgrade is worth it, and let's not forget there are very expensive two piece and one pice toilets out there... more than their wall-hung counter parts... but with them the same headaches arise as mentioned above... Like I said; no-brainer!
