Architect Alexey Gulesha, from Sivak+Partners, has spent the last few months thinking about and designing the first possible hotel room for the city of Odessa, the Beach Hotel.
Alexey has moved away from the traditional idea of a beach hotel and started to design the first suite with particular attention to materials and finally opting for glass combined with concrete and a rock wall that gives the space an appearance reminiscent of caves. The semi-circular room overlooks the beach and only strictly necessary objects and furniture have been placed inside it.
Since the hotel is equipped with several restaurants, the kitchen is practically non-existent and, for the same reason, also the dining room, the only space dedicated to short and quick snacks is a corner with a small table. The second and last table we find is a tiny desk that seems to be stuck in a rock wall. The Beach Hotel has been conceived as a place where you can isolate yourself and get away from everyday life and work commitments, precisely for this reason the spaces dedicated to work are reduced to a minimum, to be used only in case of emergency.
A large part of the suite is dedicated to the bathroom with glass walls equipped with a technology that makes them opaque when occupied, to a relaxation area with sofa and armchairs and to the sleeping area. In addition, the flagship of the Beach Hotel room is a bathtub positioned in the middle of the room and which, built with the same material as the floor, seems to come out naturally from it.
In the hope that Alexey Gulesha continues his project, we discover here under the first room.
