Project Overview

The idea behind The Eastern Avenue Boutique Hotel was to create a space that can act as an escape or hideaway without having to travel. This concept was formulated based on the global travel restrictions and bans caused by the current COVID-19 pandemic. This Evidence-Based design approach for The Eastern Avenue Boutique Hotel will provide guests with a variety of amenities that have been thoughtfully procured to create an experience that will attract users to a hotel regardless if they are locals or tourists. The hideaway concept will look at how providing a versatile environment can support the resurgence and revitalization of hotel in a post-pandemic world, as well as withstand the implications caused by other international outbreaks.
