Retreat - Hospitality Project
Djurgården, Stockholm (2021)
The brief: To design an innovative retreat that would welcome visitors for short/medium-long stays. The scheme would have to include Experiential Design principles with installations to make it unique. The location was free of choice in a place nearby our home. Also the theme of the retreat was optional among: wellbeing, creative and spiritual. The space of 169 sqm in total, would have to include four bedrooms with en-suite bathroom, a kitchenette and communal share space with functions according to the theme chosen.
My Response: I created a cozy and unique scheme for a creative retreat to be located in the island of Djurgården, between Stockholm city center and the archipelago. The theme of the retreat was inspired by the location, once a creative hub for writers. "Skriva" - to write in Swedish is an international retreat for female writers and bloggers. During the research, it emerged that female writers struggle to emerge in this field and therefore, within this retreat, they will find a place to focus and share ideas with other aspiring writers.
Skills: AutoCAD, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe InDesign, Adobe Premiere Pro and SketchUp.
