The hotel lobby as reception area and gathering place is one of the most important and prestigious areas of a hotel. Initial contact with guests is made in this public space and it plays a major role in determining whether they will feel at home during their stay. In the same way as a restaurant or bar, the lobby serves a double function – it offers relaxation and communication.
This volume uses selected international projects by Corinna Kretschmar-Joehnk and Peter Joehnk to present a wide spectrum of different ways to design these key areas of a hotel. The various design concepts from these two renowned experts create authentic locations with their own, distinctive character. Whether it’s a venerable grand hotel, a trendy budget resort or a luxury boutique hotel – the right ambiance is created each and every time.
