Apertus
The Apertus will be a hotel with Open Doors. Open doors to the world, people and cultures!

Solution

The idea of the hotel is simple: to invite conversation into your room and into your life.
The inspiration for the hotel is modern relations and society, based on the openness of social media.
The hotel inspires interaction by:
- offering a vision of openness
- creating communal rooms and a culture of exchange
- generating relations through conversation tables
The "open door" policy/culture applies on 3 levels:
- Hotel: the design is open and inviting and the atmosphere friendly and welcoming, encouraging curious passer-byes and locals to visit
- Areas: the communal areas located on each floor encourage guests to leave their rooms and join conversation tables
- Rooms: guests are encouraged to open their door to new people and connect with different people than they would normally, from local and foreign cultures

Guest and locals are invited of course!
Any local can walk in the door and visit the hotel, visit the communal areas and "open" rooms.
Every local is invited to participate in conversations and discussions by joining the conversation tables.
Any guest can invite others into his/her room or visit another's, to create a feeling of welcomeness and hospitality.
Every guest is encouraged to leave their room and participate in conversation tables and mingle with others.
Great conversation is sure to ensue!


*My drawings aren't great but I hope they'll be enough for you to get the idea, use your imaginations! My focus is on the concept and not the design as I'm not very design-able.
