Social Business Hotel / Social Business Hotel

A former retirement home is transformed into a hotel. Its concept makes it a social business that brings together different cultures.Already since Nov14, two residential units for living-communities have been home to 25 juvenile refugees. For them the hotel is a temporary place to stay and for some of them it is also a workplace.For the design we drew on a mix of found objects.The elegant color concept is accentuated with individual furniture.The ground floor is serving as a lobby for guests and a living room for the young people staying here–a practical contribution to the integration of foreigners whether they are paying guests or refugees.
