STEINDAMM MOTEL ONE // This monumental structure on a busy street is an imposing sight when you enter the city from the East. The façade panels in four gold tones reflect light in unexpected ways. The time of day and light qualities give the building a completely different character when viewed from different angles. The regular hotel window layout is broken by a cascade of vertical elements flowing as if from a waterfall. The hotel gives a new impulse in an area characterised by social and cultural change.
SPECIAL FEATURE: Very close to the lake.
BEST SPOT: Rooms above the 8th floor have great city views.
