Hotel Reenacts Guests’ Most Bizarre Suggestions


The Standard Hotel chain made use of their 2013 customer evaluations in a creative way. Under the direction of Erik Kessels and photograph Thomas Mailaender, the hotel rolled out a quirky calendar that references twelve of the strangest letters, suggestions and complaints collected from their guests. As part of the visual documentation, hotel staff were invited to re-enact the scenes, which include a man completely wrapped in toilet paper and a Daschund puppy sandwiched between a hot-dog bun.

Flipping through the monthly themes, you will find a hallway full of water cups from a guest thanking the hotel for curing his epic hangover. Good thing there is a small explanation on each page, or else it would be impossible to understand what is happening in the photo. Nonetheless, the Amsterdam-based creative agency KesselsKarmer did a great job in creating something that is unique to the hotel. So if you have ever left a comment card at The Standard, be prepared because your idea might be one of 12 peculiar calendar ideas for the new year. Continue reading »

The Incredible ‘Unbalanced Hotel’ to be Built into the Side of a Cliff in Peru

A hotel set to be built in Peru has been designed to look like a giant, off-center picture frame.

The cliff-hugging structure, designed for a private client by Madrid-based architecture firm OOIIO, will serve as the perfect frame for the Pacific Ocean on one side, and the Andes on the other. Provisionally named the Unbalanced Hotel, the building is intended to become a landmark for Lima, where it will be built into cliffs outside the city center. The Unbalanced Hotel will have 125 rooms, restaurants, conference rooms and exhibition spaces.

A hotel ‘constructed in a traditional way would be a visual barrier… that could block the ocean view,’ according to the OOIIO website. ‘Thanks to [the hotel’s] peculiar shape, the landscape is now even more relevant – we have framed it!’ The design was commissioned by a private South American client but the plans have yet to be approved by city planners.
