HOTEL DI KINADANGYAN (FEAST OF MERIT)
This hotel will serve as an invitation of the village aristocrats for the people to experience the Cordillera’s Feast of Merit creating a dynamic local venue with layers of history, personality and texture.
This hotel will give you an experience of the culture and vibe of the Cordillera tribe with the twist of modernity. Clean, crisp and easy on the eye with a touch of Ifugao Ikat woven habi on the corners in this hotel up in the Cordilleras.
From ground to roof deck, it uses a special cold-formed steel framing technology, making this project one of a kind. Not only did we use this for structural means, but also for aesthetics. The louvers placed on the façade are cold-formed steel as well.
The aim is to design a home away from home experience with warm and homey interiors but not compromising the functionality of the dormitory units. Maximizing the storage space allowable in each unit allows each user to live peacefully in a clutter free environment.
Improving user experience through interior design not only makes the targeted users happy, but through design, they have more time to do more things and be more things.
