ANDEL'S HOTEL BERLIN
The Andel's brand is all about modern business
hotels and one of the latest was set up in the thriving
business hub of East Berlin.
Jestico + Whiles was appointed to take care
of the interior design after successfully completing
three other hotels for Andel's.
Andel's Hotel Berlin was constructed from
a former apartment building -- an unfinished
concrete structure which had been abandoned
shortly after the Berlin Wall came down in 1989.
The brief to Jestico + Whiles was to stay close
to Andel's brand principles -- where function and
comfort are given equal priority -- while
accommodating the needs of both business and
The building's form is reminiscent of a classic four-
sided castle enceinte with unique towers at each of its
four corners. A range of suites is available in the
towers, making for fantastic views of the city.
The hotel has presence immediately upon entering
the lobby, with the grand, double height Oscar's
Brasserie made of monolithic stone tile.
The sky bar, in the crown of the tallest corner
tower, has 360-degree views of the city and Jestico
+ Whiles capitalised on the glamorous setting by
creating a loft space lined with anthracite polished
plaster, scored to reveal a lining of fuchsia suede.
