Designer Oana Rosen along with the architectural firm,Grübel, did an amazing job when they took on the transformation of an abandoned office building into a stunning boutique hotel. Called Roomers, this gorgeous hotel located in the business district in Frankfurt, Germany certainly has a lot of style and a distinctive personality.
The lobby is just breathtaking with its mirrored reception counter, dark walls and sculptural seating shaped like a bird with its wings pointing up. There's a lot of contrast and texture in the room which makes it very interesting. Notice the mix of modern and traditional elements in the floor lamp.
Roomer offers a 24h bar with large booths each with their own chandelier. The chandeliers have an interesting eerie feel to them and give the impression that they're melting. Notice the repetition of the round table reflected on the ceiling at the base of the chandelier. I also like how the designer arranged the lighting around the bar. It's a dark place perfect for intimate conversations.
The restaurant is also dark and intimate. It has a very homey feel to it with it upholstered booths that look like giant sofas and lamps with lines similar to lamps that can be found in homes. Notice the consistency in the selection of the chair and the bar stools.
The design of the suites is simpler and less ornate but includes design elements similar to the rest of the hotel and provides continuity. For example, the headboard resembles the wall behind the reception desk and the colors are dark. The materials and colors evoke opulence but the lines evoke minimalism. It's an interesting mix. Notice the sink carved into the symbol of the hotel. This symbol can also be found on the door of the entrance, the screen of a fireplace in a lounge and the wall of what looks like the spa (shown below).
Another one of the hotel's stunning features is the conference rooms at the top of the building. It's "a 600-square-meter roof encased in an illuminated dome made of glass set in specially-glazed white concrete. Inside this futuristic bubble, three fully-equipped conference rooms offer spectacular views over Frankfurt’s banking district below and the river Main nearby." Can you imagine having a conference in rooms like these with floor to ceiling windows and a spectacular view of the city? I love the sunken chairs and how they disappear under the table.
