EC-5 Architects a Polish design agency specialising in hospitality architecture and interiors, designed ibis Styles Lviv interiors. Over the course of cooperation with the investor the studio was responsible for creating the concept of rooms and bathrooms interiors, common spaces as well as the signage system.
„Creating the concept of ibis Styles Lviv interiors was a very interesting experience for our whole team. Lviv is a magical city where tradition is mixed with modernity. This unique blend of what’s new with what’s old as well as the city atmosphere and everyday lives of its inhabitants became our inspiration. We cannot wait to get to know what the first guests think about the design of the hotel.” – Luiza Jodłowska, architect and owner, EC-5 Architects.
New ibis Styles hotel presents a fresh approach towards the city, which commonly is associated with monuments and historical buildings. The refreshed motif of embroidery, characteristic historical buildings along with the pattern based on the city plan are used on wallpapers, carpets and the unique pattern of the bathroom tiles. They also serve as a base for the signage system. Additionally, on each of 8 hotel floors guests can find design elements inspired by an everyday life of the contemporary Lviv, for example, bicycle, tramway railway, old-school bench, city lamp, as well as the motif of a lion.
The architects haven’t also forgotten about colors that are characteristic for the ibis Styles brand. Vivid colors which contrast with delicate, bright background, as well as decor details made of wood combined with modern lamps, reception desks and furniture, give a fresh and energetic touch to the hotel interiors.
„Design is the most important factor that distinguishes ibis Styles hotel chain from our competitors. Each hotel presents a different story of the city it’s located in. This is why we pay so much attention to characteristic, locally designed details and decors. Our brand new hotel that has been opened recently in Lviv was designed with all the best the city has to offer in mind. EC-5 Architects perfectly got the ibis Styles brand message, its positive attitude, and happy mood as well as the unique atmosphere of Lviv and transformed it into outstanding interiors.” – said Alexandra Baruzdina, Design Manager, Accor Hotel Services (Russia, Georgia, Ukraine & CIS)
