Overlapping emblem

Ferminnan + Spagnoletta architects have unveiled designs for a kaleidoscopic skyscraper hotel in Berlin. The emblematic hotel located between Alexanderplatz and The Hackescher Market in the German capital focuses on overlapping volumes with the project’s metal patterned facades allowing the building’s skin to breathe and act as a filter for incoming and outgoing light while simultaneously showcasing scale. It is reported the 545 ft tall building structure will contain two hundred and sixty apartments and rooms of various types catering to different needs. The stylish interiors provide warm atmospheres bathed in light and the bedroom’s design has taken into consideration three important points: originality, luxury, and freedom. The end result is a strong identity blended with an ideal ambiance which results in a relaxing stay. The city’s iconic skyline, a blend of historical and modern structures, has in recent years shown a vertical trend leading the designers to focus on the construction of the 43 storied skyscorcher.
