The Student Hotel Delft
The Student Hotel and The Invisible Party have teamed up again to create the interior design for their latest property in Delft. The fifteenth hotel of the hybrid hospitality group is located in Nieuw-Delft, the green heart of a city that is in full development, and next to Delft Central Station. The Student Hotel aims to give innovators and creatives a place and provide a home for students and be a welcoming hub where the community can come together.
The design process and research for the interior architecture revolved all around sustainability and the history and technical character of the city of Delft. The interior design of the entire hotel has been created based on circular design principles, revolving around reuse, preservation of value and reduction of the carbon footprint.
As an additional layer, we created custom graphics and patterns which we applied to tiling, window vinyls, furniture upholstery and art installations. Materials, patterns, prints and shapes have been purposefully designed with a technical theme in mind; from computer grids to aerodynamic shapes. Those that take the time or frequent the building will often discover something new. For the illustrations and large murals we collaborated with artists and developed unique artworks that are now eternalised on the building walls.
