Hotel AKA Alexandria
- Alexandria

2021 - 2023
Field of intervention: interior design

The project involved redefining the identity of an existing building. The facade now features an elegant anthracite grey, while the openings and windows have been redesigned and the surrounding space transformed into gardens and public areas.

The interiors play on the contrast between classic and contemporary elements, offering a sophisticated reinterpretation of the area's characteristic colonial style. Additionally, references to Japanese design have been intentionally incorporated, establishing a connection with the AKA project in New York, which was developed in collaboration with the same client.

Addressing specific structural constraints, the forms have been remodelled, and the spaces have been redesigned to create interconnected compartments, each serving its unique purpose. The lighting project received significant attention, aiming to create welcoming and relaxing environments. Certain architectural elements, intrinsic to the design language of the studio, become key features in the overall design. For instance, the double-height sculptural staircase connecting the reception area to the suspended garden on the first floor.
