ARCHITECTURE

JAN STÖRMER

Jan Störmer’s glass and steel architecture is nestled in an area of Hamburg where classy urban chic meets established normality. Though only 11 stories high, Side evokes visions of luminescent skyscrapers. The Side Hotel's atrium lobby is encased by frosted glass, stretching eight stories high like a luminescent sliver between skyscrapers. Hovering above the futuristic atrium is the eighth-floor sky lounge, where Milanese designer Matteo Thun suggests weightlessness with improbably curved furniture and floating disk lighting. Stretching even further beyond, the Side's lounge terrace presents a panoramic view across both Hamburg’s gritty port and its genteel lakes.

Every piece of furniture and decorative element has been painstakingly selected or specially developed as part of the overall design concept of Side. Buttery creams and sumptuous browns serve as the soothing canvas in guest rooms, against which the Italian designer cleverly juxtaposes public areas using splashes of garish color.

INTERIOR DESIGN

EVER-CHANGING INTENSITY

A spectacular light show designed by iconic light choreographer Robert Wilson pulses through the hotel's soaring atrium with ever-changing intensity, mimicking the breaking of waves. Against the backdrop of Matteo Thun’s sober minimalism, the interior is softened by voluptuously round furnishings and natural touches.
