Chabahar Hotel

Without a doubt, the place an individual resides for the duration of a visit plays a significant role in the traveller’s experience and memories. One of main purposes of a hotel is to act as a friendly host that welcomes guests through its hospitality, services, and architectural form that intimately invites travellers. The more welcoming the hotel is in fulfilling this role, the more successful it is as a business. Hospitality is part of a hotel’s architectural identity and its shapes and forms must be representation of this identity.

In our design process of the four start Chabahar Hotel, we are reconsidering the standard mindset in regards to hotel architecture. The prevailing design ideology is the formation of organized physical space through arrangement of similar modular spaces that make up the overall space. However, our modern approach to architecture design moves in the opposite direction and focuses on creating a form to reduce the negative spaces in rooms and other areas in the hotel.

Thus, this minimal architectural design gives life to spaces that are distinctive, modular, hospitable and accommodating. The underlying space to expand the space in the opposite directions of the building are reduced to create an inviting connection between the road and valley behind, leading to the body of water. Rather than blocking the view like a dam, the hotel will open an experience for the guest to enjoy the ocean.

The modular form of rooms reduces the overall volume by synchronizing spaces and making each room unique. To accommodate for natural lighting and view of central rooms, we will create a semi-private courtyard by removing a portion of the top layer, and increasing the experience and value of the adjacent rooms. In harmony with the concept design, the developer also has a minimal structure in mind, that covers the wide opening of the underlying structure. This structure form, alongside the room’s rhythms, shapes a unified form, that is both unique and in contrast to solid shapes of the building.
