Preserving the original architectural values of the Hard Rock Hotel Budapest building, the storeys that were developed over the hotel’s main cornice received a contemporary, progressive covering for the facade. The metal cover panels lend a homogenous architectural appearance, thus crowning the building. The surface of the crown is composed of large rhombuses, on which capsule shaped perforations ensure that the hotel rooms retain appropriate views, while they sufficiently cover the private surfaces from the outside. For S39 Hybrid Design, it was an exciting project to work out the perforation graphics, requiring innovative spirit and contemporary designer technology.
