Born in London, Great Britain, David Chipperfield studied at the Architectural Association School.
Luxury and intimacy
In the lobby, the first thing you notice is a large circular Murano crystal lamp. The hallway, painted totally black, gives a feeling of depth and intimacy; triangular bundles on the ceiling precisely attempt to confer this quality of spatial depth and continuity.
In the rooms, the surprise is that Chipperfield has sought a different type of room based on a highly geometric concept of space. The entire floor is covered with pieces of terracotta measuring 7 x 21 cm. The spatial order continues in the desk, which is made of a single slim piece using the same proportions as the floor tiles and walls. The bench and headboard are covered in black leather as well, making for utter simplicity. Over the bed is a piece of lacquered blue DM which constitutes a unique feature in the room. The contrasting colours, mainly black and white, and the simplicity of the space give the guests supreme relaxation and achieve a very well-lit space.
