Polished Aluminum Cantilever Featured at Music & Lifestyle Hotel

Polished Aluminum Cantilever Featured at Music & Lifestyle Hotel

Project: Music & Lifestyle Hotel nhow
Location: Berlin, Germany
Architects: nps tchoban voss

Abutting the River Spree, located in Berlin’s cultural epicenter, the nhow Music & Lifestyle Hotel brings a new level of diversity to the hospitality market. Coined as a “lifestyle hotel,” the structure showcases a new dynamic in hospitality…the integration of music and design.

As Europe’s first musically interfaced hotel, the nhow chain features two in-house sound studios. One of which is located in a polished aluminum cantilever that sits seventy feet in the air. The underbelly of the protruding hotel extension is clad in mirrored aluminum, reflecting the building’s roof below adding a distinct flare to the classical looking exterior.

This four-star hotel features all the accommodations of a hospitality structure including over 300 guest suites, restaurants, ballroom, and a spa area. Equally focused on the interior, the hotel features a diverse array of colorful suite designs.

Achieving both transparency and a classic looking exterior façade, floor to ceiling panels envelop the ground floor. All subsequent floors feature differs shades of perforated brickwork.
