It is a prodigious installation which, strengthened by an experimental lighting system that is ahead of its time, knows no rest. In fact, it is open 24/7 and covers almost thirty-thousand square meters of floorspace.
The white walls in lacquered glass, enhanced by delicate themed prints, give the hall a surreal atmosphere. The banister on the stairs that lead to the upper floor give off a distorted reflection, while the lighting, also custom designed, plays all of its cards on the edge of excitement.
A frame of the movie “Forbidden Songs”, the first produced by the Studios, directed in 1947 by Leonard Buczkowski, was chosen as the graphic theme for the façade of the hotel.:
Each pixel of the image corresponds to a panel on the wall. Each panel is painted with twelve shades of gray, shades that are impressed in the glass using a technological solutions called screen printing. The light source, protected by double glass, remains hidden from view.
“Thanks to the construction of the Doubletree hotel in the Hilton chain, we had the chance to tell the incredibly epic story of a place full of magic” – comment Joanna Musiałowicz and Marcin Klukowski, the architects in charge of such an innovative project.
