METAL SURFACES ADORN THE INTERIOR OF THE COLOGNE HOTEL
This is the claim presented on the website of the Urban Loft Hotel opened in Cologne in October. “Here you are more than a visitor – because we are more than a hotel. We are an inhabitable experience, your temporary home,” it continues. As soon as you enter the foyer, it becomes clear what this means.
“WE ARE MORE THAN A HOTEL. WE ARE A MEETING PLACE OF CULTURES. LOCAL. CREATIVE. COSMOPOLITAN.”
The newest location of the Althoff hotel group brings together new, exciting and inspirational design elements and appears as a meeting place for like-minded people. Co-working tables in the lounge invite exchange, while a comfortable fireside corner and drinks created with regional ingredients delight guests in the bar. Sustainability is important to the easily accessible hotel located in the heart of central Cologne.
This starts with the cosmetic products and runs as a green thread from the pillows and bed covers made from materials tested for harmful substances, and extends to the breakfast rich in vitamins and nutrients.
HARMONIOUS MATERIAL AND COLOUR MIX
The breakfast lounge, bar as well as co-working space seamlessly
merge together into an extensive lounge area. Locality and cosmopolitan attitudes meet on common ground. The interior is just as colourful and inspirational as the hotel’s motto.
Here architect Markus Hilzinger adeptly uses various harmonised
materials and colours. The interior is a playful mix of covers with digital colour codes and layers in an open, modern loft – perfectly tailored to the target group as presented on the interior design architect’s website.
The appealing combination of materials and colours also includes real metal (RM) Homapal surfaces.
The HOMAPAL real metal collection features decors that range in look from classic to modern, from strong to delicate and fine, while keeping the same standard of quality. Using thinly rolled foils of real aluminium, copper, brass and stainless steel, a special embossing technique gives the surfaces their unique texturing. Together with the diverse range of colours and stunning lustres, these real metals come with a feel that is truly exceptional, an unbeatable combination and hard to imitate.
