This is a third year project during which we had to design a hotel room using Blue-Sky Thinking. The brief was to choose between seven brands that build Intercontinental Hotels Group: InterContinental, Crown Plaza, Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express, Indigo, Staybridge Suites and Candlewood Suites, and design a Hotel Room of the future. While working on this project we needed to get the hotel design to the next level and present our ideas, innovations and expectations of future hotel designs.
The room itself looks quite simple, but the technology is complex, but also easy to use. Just like when you enter the room by day it looks completely different than when you’d enter the room by night. It is a smart room that contains: movable walls, rotatable HD TV with programs on demand and mirror TV in the bathroom, high speed Wi-Fi and wired connection to the internet, modular wall with electronically opened sofa, mini-bar, desk with a sitting place, a docking system for MP3, iPod with a software enabling a customer to control the lights and temperature, giving you a chance to order a food from the list on the screen with all the information about favourite or the exact dish. The room also contains BOSE surround sound system both in lounge and sleeping area, Clocky alarm clock, stuffy air sensor, and sensor of movement, so when the client walks out, after 30 minutes the room switches into low-energy consuming, but while the customer enters back the room everything switches back to previous settings. In the room, not only the walls are modular, in the lounge area the floor hides a coffee table and small puffs for feet. These of course can be regulated as needed.
