Concrete has taken the name Überfluss (which translates in to ‘abundance’) literally and made it one of the key elements in the design. Classic ornamented elements with a modern twist, either in shape, material or manufacturing process provide the way to express this wealth and luxury.
Erected from a 19th century loft and completely renovated, The Pure expresses ease as well as clearness and transparency despite being situated right in the heart of Frankfurt. Described as a wonderful place to spoil the soul, the interiors are made of bright and clear material (white lacquer, Thassos Glass Stone, white leather and light grey floor), the hotel itself is no more than a background attraction in the guests’ eyes, while the happenings around will be focused. Furthermore, the atmosphere is adjusted to the course of the clients’ day: In the morning, pleasing light and smooth music welcome the guests in quietness as well as vitality – in the evening, The Pure turns into an oasis full of energy and underlined by visual orange effects.

While Designing Alila Villas Uluwatu, the architects wanted to create more than the usual stereotypical ideas of Bali, creating a design that worked with the dry Balinese Savannah vegetation and gently sloping site, not against it.
