Our aim for the interior design of the Boutique Hotel Doha was to create a rich and welcoming atmosphere, where both the past and the present seamlessly come together. With respect to the building’s architectural heritage, we chose to emphasize its strongest visual element; the window arches in the façade. This arched shape was translated in various ways into both the exterior and interior design.
The overall design is based on the different functionalities of- and therewith requirements of spaces. Hotel guest areas are more private and quiet, whereas areas open for visitors are more dynamic and active. By creating this division and difference in the design, guests can enjoy a gradual transitioning in level of activity from the front to the back of the hotel. Enabling all guests to feel at ease and providing them with a sense of privacy, an effortless routing was created by separate hotel access possibilities for guests and visitors.
Mirroring the first courtyard, the second square shaped with glass covered lobby also boasts a tranquil garden. Here guests are met by a massive architectural inspired art installation suspended over the lobby garden that contributes to the ambient artisanal feel of the hotel’s interior. Communicating the human scale that a boutique environment befits, the art installation breaks up the voluminous ceiling heights, seamlessly unites various layers of the hotel and continues the buildings architectural language with bronze arched shaped wireframes.
