Hoody Active & Happiness Hotel
- Giulia Bortolotti
Hoody Active & Happiness sports hotel, on the eastern shore of Lake Garda, is a perfect example of how tile joints and installation patterns can become a striking design feature.
It was designed by architect and interior designer Giulia Bortolotti, who focused on the concepts of play, motion and dynamism to create a modern, informal hotel conveying a carefree, positive mode.
The interiors are an invitation to socialisation and the sharing of spaces, while the colours - mainly blue and yellow - are bright and tastefully judged, in both the furnishings and the coverings.
The choice of flooring, the Mystone Ceppo di Gré stone-effect porcelain stoneware in 75x150 cm size, fits attractively into the design concept, contrasting with the hotel’s modernity and providing a link to the outdoor areas. The staggered diagonal installation pattern emphasises the dynamic character of the various rooms, while the blue joints dialogue with the use of lines and trajectories in a number of decorative features, a symbolic reference to the sports and games available at the hotel.
