The design represents a fusion between the energy, history, authenticity and art culture of the location and the dynamic, progressive brand principles of PURO, demonstrating the its passion for contemporary art, design-led furniture and forward-looking hospitality.

This conceptual narrative has provided a rich source of inspiration for the creation of a unique PURO hotel which is firmly grounded in its location.

Our design has created a welcoming 228 room hotel with a residential feel, designed to encourage guests to inhabit the ground floor spaces, morning, noon and night. The two characterful eateries – the MAK café and the Halicka restaurant – incorporate indoor and outdoor areas with private ‘pockets’ of space. We looked very carefully at how these spaces function and flow together, despite having their own memorable and individual identities.

The guest rooms and suites are lifted by a layered range of textures, including timber floors as well as vibrant tilework for the shower rooms. Space-saving design features help enhance the sense of light and volume in the smaller rooms especially, with sliding screens to separate sleeping areas and bathrooms.

There are many bespoke elements throughout, layered with colour, pattern and texture within a choice of relaxing spaces, including a library area and a sunken sitting room arranged around a central, sculptural fireplace.

The Prisma spa incorporates bold, graphic, contemporary spaces which fuse natural materials with industrial finishes and strong colours, including emerald-coloured tiles, vivid pink flooring and a saturated blue ceiling to give energy and identity.
