Jon Sealey takes inspiration from aircraft business class areas to design compact 5 star hotel. The curve forms of a black rose provided inspiration for the world’s first 5 star capsule hotel designed by Jon Sealey, Group Design Director of Marques and Jordy.
At 7 meters wide the building is able fit into a tight site boundary inside a dense urban fabric whilst at the same time providing maximum number of rooms and hotel facilities.
“The idea was developed from aircraft business class seats where every tiny detail is considered to maximize space in a given area” explains Jon.“
The hotel is about reducing the carbon footprint of hotels by building up rather than out, this enables more public greenspace in cities whilst at the same time providing exceptional interior spaces and a unique luxurious experience to the guests”
Suite Rooms are at just 12sq.m and incorporate on suite bathrooms, king size bed, mini bar and all the regular suite facilities. A new room typology of A Double Twin Suite consists of 2 king size beds and a shared on-suite bathroom.
“The concept is based on amplifying a series of emotions that I wanted the guests to experience. I wanted to intensify the positive emotions experienced when staying at a luxury hotel. Elements of anticipation, surprise and awe are amplified by design elements, innovative use of materials, lighting, smells and music.
The hotel would be the first of it’s kind and completely new typology for developers to consider. We hope by going public we can move the project forward” Jon tells A As Architecture. Source by Marques and Jordy.
