A Pinch of Design
Situated near the historic center of Riga, new Park Inn hotel aims to become a central meeting point for business or leisure travellers. The brief was to create a comfortable and elegant entrance area where guests can relax, meet or wait for their dining companions before entering Bocca Buona bar and restaurant.
The lobby design follows the style of the Bocca Buona restaurant located in the immediate vicinity with a visual connection to the entrance. The combination of material and texture is refined, with Italian reminiscence. The surfaces of the Calacatta alternate with the wooden surfaces, framing the central element of the fireplace.
Warm and neutral colors are contrasted with red furniture items. The ceiling is designed as a series of glass fields which visually expands the space and creates a wow effect at the entrance to the hotel.
