Named after Budapest’s famed "Chain Bridge" which spans the Danube, Design Hotel Lánchíd 19 is a contemporary highlight in a neighbourhood of predominately 19th century architecture. This contrast is indicative of Budapest’s evolving character, one which celebrates both past and present.
The architect and design team created a moveable accordion-like glass façade, further animated by the changing colours of an innovative lighting design concept.
Glass is one of the dominant materials in the interiors as well, creating a sense of openness and allowing movement and connectedness to become an integral part of Lánchíd 19’s character. A building-high glass atrium towers above the foyer enabling natural light to flood the communal spaces and glass bridges which lead to the guestrooms.
A wooden staircase connects the foyer with a restaurant, which is located on a gallery above. Looking over the open-work glass and wood space separators, one has views of the restaurant and the intimate garden beyond. The lobby itself is equally dramatic with its transparent floor revealing Roman ruins a level below. Here again history is well integrated into the interior design where examples of classical-modern design, such as chairs by Alvar Aalto are mixed with custom-designed furnishings.
In the guestrooms, the spatial connection of the living space and bathrooms – similar to the whole house – indicates the concept of flowing space with their glass sliding doors.
