Global design project for a hotel in Óbidos, Portugal.The concept was intended for guests to have a different stay experience than the traditional one in Óbidos through the interior design.
The hotel is designed over an existing building and had some architectural intervention restrictions, such as not being allowed to modify existing walls or having electrical cables inside the ceiling and walls. The design of the lamps took these limitations into account and we chose for the ceiling lamps in the reception and dining room to be made using copper tubes that are distributed wherever necessary and end with the lighting.In the bedrooms we aim to have a minimalist environment where the bed is the central object. The bed surrounds the floor, wall and ceiling space and lighting surrounds the bed. The light control buttons turn on and off the lighting of the bedside tables and bed, which has the possibility of varying the light intensity using a dimmer.
Creative direction by Marco Madruga and part of the design team were Tiago Almeida in interior design and 3D, and Cristina Viana in graphic design.
The architecture and construction was carried out by Antonio Cotrim, “Contentor de Ideias”.
The Viva hotel was open for a short period of time and is currently closed.
