As trends, technology, and the needs and expectations of guests change, we as an industry must adapt with them. How has hotel design evolved in the past few years?
One of the main things we are seeing in the progression of hospitality design is the elevated importance of the lobby and public spaces as focal points of hotel architecture and design. For today’s instant gratification generations who want to be wired in 24/7, we have adapted our lobby designs – which used to be stopping points on the way to guestrooms – as a highly interactive social area for the complete eat/work/play experience. This is now the space for collaboration, social networking, and the work area away from the office.
