Situated in the old town of Gdańsk in Poland, the Almond Hotel has a total area of 7500 m2. It has the joint functions of a hotel, restaurant, and a spa & wellness complex. It was built in the place of a former cocoa and almond paste manufacturing facility. Ideograf Architectural Studio used numerous references to the history of the place in the design concept for the new building.
The hotel part consists of 109 rooms and several common areas. In the lobby, stone tops made of onyx refer to the traditional amber of Gdańsk. On the floors, carpets with the map of the city have been designed especially for the hotel. An added bonus for guests are the spectacular views towards the marina.
The two-level restaurant is divided into two zones: a lower one where the bar and the kitchen are situated at the centre and a cosy one for dining on the upper level.
An industrial feel is added to the interiors through suspended shelves and the bar’s structure that features geometric patterned tiles that smoothly join the oak pavement. The wood motif of the interiors is also present through the wooden grate on the restaurant’s ceiling, while a similar element can be found in the lobby.
