If this hotel was a person, we probably would be talking about a rockstar: capricious, coy, spectacular – sexy! International celebrities e.g. Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Amy Winehouse, Brian Molko (Placebo), Skin (Skunk Anansie) or Drew Barrymore feel oh so comfortable in the awardwinning design-hotel.
A quirky mash-up of materials, colours and details, the overall look is very coherent and makes generator Berlin a welcoming place that quickly grows on you. There’s rough wood panelling and open ceilings, raw copper panels against black walls in the basement and the simple furniture and mastic asphalt in the breakfast area that contrast with the mirrored ceiling in the bar are just some examples of the design details that are featured.
The presentation room, completely covered in 132 sq m of mirrors on the outside, picks up on the modern linearity of the BAUKNECHT brand, whilst simultaneously using its mirror motif to enter into a symbiotic relationship with the ballroom and thereby creating a link to the exclusive ambience of the hotel. The dynamic positioning of the structure creates a spatial experience of a special kind, as new viewing angles continuously arise.
Breaking from conventions of the typical showroom mono-culture, the curators Pöppler & Hofstetter are creating a lavish world poised at the intersection of interior architecture studio, fine art gallery and home furnishings boutique; embellished with an alchemical mix of hand selected design elements.
