HOSPITALITY DESIGN THE SOLACE HOTEL
CONCEPT The overall design of the hotel will consist of shapes, features, and images relating to nature to create nothing but a relaxing environment when staying at the hotel. The public spaces throughout the hotel as well as the guestrooms will help the guests feel comfortable and alleviated from stress in the outside world. The curves of trees, the ripples in water, the organic shapes of flowers and leaves; these are all key elements of nature that will be brought into the design of this space. These elements will be brought into the design by the use of curvilinear furniture, a neutral color palette with bold accents of color, and the use of eco-friendly materials.
