In Reykjavik, Iceland capital they wanted to build a big new hotel in Ingolfstorg, a public existi ng plaza in Kvosin, the city historical center, very close to the Iceland Parliament.
The program was asking for a way too big building that couldn´t work well with the existi ng city patt ern. There are no big buildings on this area.
OOIIO Architecture team decided to break the big hotel into 2 hotels. This decision make all the program to work much better, not only because the size of the buildings is more suitable with the historical center, also because the client could build now the buildings in diff erent phases, and if he wants, use building A as a 5 stars hotel and building B as a 4 stars hotel, so the scheme is more flexible for its economical benefits.
Ingolfstorg, is an existi ng public plaza in Reykjavik, which needs to be recycled. There are several bars, restaurants and shops, but it is looking a bit neglected. The area, with a great locati on, defi nitely needs a clean-up. Building a new interesti ng hotel over there could help on that. Unfortunately, the brief was asking to occupy most of Ingolfstorg open public space, and the city was going to lose this open area forever.
OOIIO Architecture decided to combine the client requirements of building enough hotel space and facilities to get good economical benefits from it, and to provide new and interesti ng public areas to not loose public square meters for the city. The proposal is a combinati on of a good and functi onal hotels, restaurants and shops, mixed with very contemporary public areas, opened to the city of Reykjavik, looking forward to become a new city att racti on. This combinati on public + hotel and commercial will defi nitely become a great profi t for both, city and the hotel developer client.
All the 130 hotel rooms have natural light and venti lati on, and public areas, street level and roof are well combined with commercial spaces.
To att ract even more public to this new building-open space, OOIIO Architecture decided to design a light-pati o installati on on the center of the main building, that combined with the ground excavati on, generates a great contemporary space able to be used as a cultural platf orm for the local or internati onal arti st, where they can project any kind of light performance. It will become a space similar to what it is now Times Square for New York or Piccadilly Circus to London, but in a new format and on a adequate scale to Reykjavik.
The lower level on this public space can be used as a open theater, with restaurants, shops and the hotel lobby facing it, and from it the people can take panoramic escalators that take them all the way up to the public sculptural hotel roof, where they can get a new panoramic view from all Kvosin central Reykjavik area. All the interventi on will became very quick as a new touristi c att racti on, transforming the neglected existi ng plaza, into the best possible locati on for the new hotels and the existi ng commercial surroundings.
The hotel façade wants to indicate the singularity of the buildings and is inspired in traditi onal Icelandic bread. It creates a double skin for the buildings that unify all the interventi on, providing movement and texture at the same ti me that it protects from direct sun radiati on inside.
