REDESIGNING // FROM APARTMENT TO LUXURY GUESTHOUSE
Transform the apartment into a luxurious guest house with design elements.
Nature of the island
I created a new design for the sleeping room and bathroom of this holiday complex. CuraVilla is located in a luxury residential area in the center of the island.
In the current floorplan the apartment is devided in three different spaces. In my design I want to bring them together by the use of transparency by reflecting on my concept of the openness of the island of Curacao. From a co-design session I concluded that hotel guests like to have a separate toilet. Changing the toilet space creates a new space for the bathroom. The bathroom now acts as a passage between living room and bedroom which gives gives the space a spacious feeling.
By choosing a custom-made element, serenity is created in the bedroom. The custom-made closet reaches from floor to the ceiling and from wall to wall. This makes enough storage for the quests and their luggage, but also for sheets, towels and other things that the guesthouse offers the guests. To paint the closet the same way as the walls, I create peace with this element. The color combination is an abstract form of the horizon that surrounds the island of Curacao. The wall of the bed is covered with Cole&Son – Hummingbird wallpaper. The bird that you will encounter a lot on the island.
