Hotel + Restaurant Mani

Berlin 2011

A dark and reflective palette is used to make the stylish interior of the compact boutique hotel. The material palette is dominated by glass, polished wood walls, leather, wood parquet, and marbles to create a sultry ambiance for hanging out and dining in. On the exterior, the unadorned dark gray façade contrasts with the surrounding buildings, and guests enter through a dark marble base that boasts its innate material opulence through simple detailing. Inside, the public spaces offer a dark and seductive sequence of reflective surfaces that lead past the day-lit library and reception area, through the glossy ebony-lined bar and open kitchen to a sculptural fireplace of green marble and glass. This fireplace occupies the center of the restaurant that opens laterally to a jungle-like courtyard garden. Upstairs, the 63 guest rooms are carefully detailed in contrasts of dark and light, ornamented with woven leathers, dark woods and reflective materials.
