About the ME Hotel project, Foster + Partners explains, The practice designed every aspect of the hotel, from the building to individual bathroom fittings – this synthesis of vision and detail has allowed the bold geometry of the structure to be exploited to dramatic spatial effect. The bold palette gives the hotel a strong visual identity, while allowing the freedom to explore variations in scale, texture and materials to define the character of each space.

The experience draws on the idea of yin and yang, as guests move from dark to light areas – the crisp white bedrooms are reached by black marble corridors, sculpted by the inclined walls of the dramatic central pyramid. The rooms were extensively prototyped, and the design team analysed every detail to ensure that every guest’s stay would be comfortable and memorable. ME Hotel Images
