Conceptual Development

Concept/Design Process

A boutique hotel that is created with the purpose of being a business hub for different businesses to come together and connect. This hotel will work as a business hub to connect each business that flows through it and give them a place to exchange their skills and abilities with one another.

When adding these types of threshold forms within the design it will help to creates an impactful moments and a seamless design.

Site Plan/Floor Plan(s)

The layout of the hotel was designed to help the function of the Business Hub concept. The basement level has all the business purpose areas such as the conference room and multi-use room. The ground level has the more social areas, such as the lounge area, bar, and restaurant. Finally, the second level is the hotel suites for those travelers that are coming from far away and need a place to rest.
