Project OverviewProject Overview
Location Manila, Philippines
Seated at one of the busiest roads along Manila Bay, this hotel highlights a unique facade design which incorporates the existing sidewalk in front of it making it seem to extend far and beyond when viewed from the building lobby.
The driveway consists of bold geometric lines of various colored/textured granite tiles radiating from the centre of the main entry, laser-cut bollards with patterns mimicking ocean waves, and softscape features of bold forms for visual impact. Floor above the main entry is the spillover area designed as an outdoor extension of the amenities. Artificial turf grass and composite wood tiles are materials of choice for ease of maintenance and durability. A water feature which is lit at night adds interest and vibrancy to the space whilst a backdrop of upright bamboo provide a vertical element and screening.
