A ho­tel for the hip and trendy in Ger­many.

Ital­ian in­te­rior de­sign and ar­chi­tec­ture firm Mat­teo Thun + Part­ners has set the bench­mark with its first project — In­ter­city Ho­tel Braun­schweig — which is the prod­uct of a part­ner­ship with es­tab­lished Ger­man hote­lier Deutsche Hos­pi­tal­ity Group.

Step into the lobby where vast full-height glass win­dows al­low nat­u­ral light to stream in, il­lu­mi­nat­ing the open-plan space, giv­ing it a warm, wel­com­ing am­bi­ence.

De­signed to re­sem­ble a liv­ing room, guests can lounge on ex­clu­sively de­signed arm­chairs by Mat­teo Thun + Part­ners as they await check-in.

Crate boxes that sit on black steel-framed shelves dou­ble as clever dis­play spots for decor ac­ces­sories like plants, lamps and books. The struc­ture also helps sep­a­rate the seat­ing area to pro­vide more pri­vacy.

To ac­com­mo­date larger groups, the “din­ing room space” has a large wood ta­ble. Spray-painted bi­cy­cle rims hang over­head as re­pur­posed light­ing fix­tures for a quirky, in­dus­trial look. The bistro-cum-bar, too, has an eye-catch­ing fea­ture that’s com­posed of wall­mounted light wood boxes of vary­ing sizes, which serve both func­tion and aes­thet­ics.

Bold shades like fuch­sia, or­ange and yel­low add a pop of colour to the grey wall be­hind. The look is com­pleted with a long, solid oak bar counter and high chairs that pro­vide more seat­ing op­tions for ho­tel guests.

In line with the look of the com­mon ar­eas, the rooms in the ho­tel are just as trendy. Re­treat into one of the 215sqf rooms, fea­tur­ing wood floors, large win­dows, min­i­mal­ist fur­ni­ture, and a wall that’s cladded com­pletely with the city’s map — which is spot­ted with tourist at­trac­tions and sight­see­ing spots — so you can eas­ily plan your travel routes.

Ac­cord­ing to the man­age­ment, the chic in­te­ri­ors and youth­ful vibe of In­ter­city Ho­tel Braun­schweig will serve as ref­er­ence for fu­ture out­lets in Bu­dapest and Dubai as well. THE HO­TEL IS AT WILLY- BRANDT- PLATZ 3, 38102 BRAUN­SCHWEIG, GER­MANY. FOR MORE DE­TAILS, VISIT WWW. IN­TER­CI­TY­HO­TEL. COM.

TOP A neu­tral colour pal­ette, fur­ni­ture with curvy sil­hou­ettes, and a mix of in­ter­est­ing decor ac­ces­sories add to the ca­sual am­bi­ence of the lobby.

LEFT The bar’s func­tional wall fea­ture de­sign is a great stor­age so­lu­tion, too!

ABOVE The ex­posed bulb bed­side light­ing fix­tures are sub­tle hints at the de­sign in­tent to tie to­gether in­dus­trial-style el­e­ments in the ho­tel.
