New book alert: The best of hospitality design in Night Fever 6
Amsterdam – Don’t mind if we say this, but our Night Fever series is one of the best resources for interior designers and clients working in the hospitality industry: it’s a two-year survey of the most outstanding bar, restaurant, hotel and club projects around the globe.
The sixth edition of the book, which also features insightful interviews with designers Didier Faustino, Guto Requena, Linda Bergroth and Francesc Rifé, is out now and available for purchase in our web store.
As a preview of what’s inside, here’s a selection of four featured projects that present a daring use of colour, light, material and space.

GENESIN STUDIO – BAN BAN
The fresh and playful interior of Ban Ban, the first Korean fried chicken eatery in the city, are a reflection of its fun food and cocktail list. Decked in sleek baby blue tiling throughout and using a colour palette of soft pink and green in its seating and cutlery, the overall effect is energising, modern and youthful.

LUCAS Y HERNÁNDEZ-GIL – CASAPLATA
Located in the city’s historic centre, Casaplata offers a fresh perspective from the nostalgic interiors of its neighbours. The clients briefed Lucas y Hernandez-Gil to design a restaurant and cocktail bar that could flexibly adapt to different types of clientele and events, and with this, to accommodate varying ambiances throughout the day: from lunch, to afternoon bites and cocktails.

BARANOWITZ + KRONENBERG – AWAY SPA
The W Hotel is spread between two monumental buildings in the heart of the city: a bank from 1908 (one of the first concrete constructions in the Netherlands) and a telephone service building inaugurated in 1928. Both of these buildings were formerly used to ‘connect and exchange.’ This historical reference influenced Baranowitz + Kronenberg when designing the hotel’s Away Spa. ‘The rigidity of the original structure made it necessary to reinterpret and reinvent the spatial arrangements and programming of the public rooms,’ said the team.

BERGMEISTERWOLF – PARHOTEL HOLZNER
The new wing of the Parkhotel Holzner, located in South Tyrol, extends from the historic art nouveau hotel to carefully merge into the grassy slopes of the site. Designed by Bergmeisterwolf, the Minimal structure contrasts strikingly with the more ornate historic building, adding eleven new suites, a wellness centre in the basement, rooftop tennis courts and a restaurant.
