Erbil, ancient city projected towards a rapid modernization, is today one of the most buzzing in the heart of a region by high rates of growth, where major development projects and urban transformation sprout and flourish of luxury hospitality is the map of touchstone of their success.
Candle Tower fits into this context. In an area in the urban belt near the center of Erbil, between the international airport opened in 2005 and the historic citadel of 6,000 years ago, Candle Tower is a project of great interest to facilitate the transition of the contemporary Iraqi Kurdish capital and strengthen its vocation of international destination.
A neighborhood that provides a functional mix with 48 apartments, 10 single villas and a hotel Kempinski: a 5-star with 257 rooms and 7 suites, two restaurants, a wine bar, a grand ballroom with space events, unaSPA , a floor dedicated to pool & gym with a bar and a large terrace, a business center with a conference room for 200 people. In addition, the Luxury Hotel is connected to a mall with the best luxury brands, restaurants, food court and family entertainment center with cinemas.
Lombardini22 oversaw the interior design of the hotel, joining the European heritage of the Kempinski brand with tradition Regional Local. A classic-modern cultural synthesis that achieves harmony and comfort through a careful balance of opposti.Il project Lombardini22 states, first of all, the continuity outside / inside. That's how the geometries and colors recall the architectural envelope in which they are, in conceptual un'indivisibilità between interior, architecture and town planning as precise poetic.
Hence, the progression from public to private: a spatial sequence where the different functions are ad hoc suggestions, in harmony with the different environments. From the wealth iconic entrance, to the lobby as welcoming and relaxing destination, the union of confidentiality and size of the space of the restaurant, to the intimacy of the rooms, each step is determined in detail and comprises different areas and individualized but, at the same time, harmonic whole through a common thread: in materials, sophisticated textures of light and shadows, in recurrent patterns on surfaces.
