“Modern castle” in Grudziądz

POLAND The Tremend architectural studio has designed the Hotel Ibis Styles Grudziądz and given it a modern style but with mediaeval motifs.

“We like when our designs strongly reflect the local realities. The references to its history and tradition create a unique context for our hotels and add to their colour,” claims Magdalena Federowicz-Boule, the president of Tremend.

Ibis Styles Grudziądz, located near the city’s old town, has several features referring to mediaeval architecture and chivalry. These have been combined with the modern decor and original design of the hotel. The public areas are characterised by their simple, functional and spacious layout with clearly divided zones. The project utilises a classic combination of black and white, complemented with wood and soft fabrics in shades of grey with brighter splashes of turquoise and copper. The reception desk has been decorated with a chain armour motif. An outline of the panorama of Grudziądz has been added to the wall behind the reception desk, while the curtains in the lobby are reminiscent of colourful flags. The restaurant has been fitted with long wooden tables and modern chandeliers to create a banqueting hall effect. Examples of mediaeval touches can be found both in the culinary zone, where there are niches resembling old granaries with slanting roofs and decorative details, as well as in the rooms themselves, where the bathrooms contain washbasins resembling old washing bowls.

“We really aimed to design an interior that combines a mediaeval atmosphere with modern design,” explains Olga Stępień, the co-designer of the project.
