AZIMUT MÜNCHEN MUNICH, GERMANY 2014
Ester Bruzkus and Patrick Batek were commissioned by AZIMUT to develop the new vision for their international chain of hotels. Remaining true to their high aspirations and to their restrained style, the architects have created a series of modern and charming 3-star-plus hotels with a warm yet simple atmosphere. Only a few years after its construction, Bruzkus Batek’s concept has been applied in the lobby and conference areas at the AZIMUT Munich hotel. . In the new AZIMUT Hotels a golden reception block, dark floors and lighter oak panelling welcome the incoming guests. Lighted vintage-lettered signs in different colours and sizes combine to create eye-catching installations that show the way to the reception, restaurant or bar. In the "Living Lobby" distinctive areas defined by carpeting, bookshelves and glass walls, form zones where guests can work or relax. Ester Bruzkus and Patrick Batek designed the furniture and lighting in the public spaces themselves, and these complement the welcoming atmosphere of the hotel that has been achieved with decorative objects curated by komdo.co. The conference rooms continue the pleasant atmosphere of the lobby, with materials such as oak, with white and warm gray tones accompanied by a palette of typical AZIMUT reds. A geometric patterned carpet designed by Bruzkus Batek is also used here. The conference rooms are equipped with versatile furniture. Informal seating areas provide contained zones for discussions in small groups, and in the coffee-break areas Bruzkus Batek’s furniture forms an inviting ensemble. Larger events take place in the banquet hall where guests can chat, dine and celebrate at round tables. Naturally all rooms are equipped to the latest technological standards.
