no grand theories or abstract ideas. just things that work.
concrete likes to let the work do the talking.
citizenM Rotterdam is the fifth hotel to open. It offers
mobile citizens of the world affordable luxury in the
heart of the city. The concept of the hotel is to cut
out all hidden costs and remove all unnecessary items,
in order to provide its guests a luxury feel for a budget
price. This hotel counts 151 rooms of 14 sq m.
The design is focussed on the belief that a great bed
and a simple and clean bathroom is all we need
during a city or business trip. The public area is
located at the first floor and forms the social heart
of the hotel. Large windows on two sides create an
open and transparent atmosphere. The space
is divided in several areas where you can find the
environments to work, socialize, relax or have a drink.
