Remodelling a Hotel with the Help of an Experienced Architect
Hotel remodelling takes craft, dedication, an eye for detail and an experienced architect with the skills to assist in a project where a building can be transformed into a fully-functioning, modern hotel whilst maintaining a dignified nod to the past and the heritage conservation architecture that is required in certain settings. There are many different aspects of a hotel that must be addressed by the designers and architects, especially where a remodelling project is underway on a site where there is already a hotel present. What aspects do you keep? What needs to be removed? How do you remodel a hotel architecturally to be more efficient, more successful and bring a greater ROI for the hotel owners?
The renovation of hotels is a skill that certain architecture firms have. It can be an incredibly challenging process, with a high level of investment required and a real dedication of personal time from the ownership to ensure that everyone is speaking from the same hymn sheet and have the same aesthetic and functional vision for the hotel. An experienced hotel architecture will help a hotel owner to work through the different stages of the project in detail.
The first of these is the design stage where experienced hotel architects take an in-depth look at the current hotel at a design level, speak with the ownership and investors and look at how a plan can be put together to change the design of the hotel whilst maintaining operational levels and guest satisfaction (if the current hotel has good ratings for these) or how to improve those too. This is important, as too often the aesthetics of a hotel are prioritised without considering the impact any design changes on a hotel will have on an operational level. A remodelled hotel that looks fantastic is no use if it fails on a functional level and does not please the guests.
From there, you can begin to look at the concept of the hotel. What does the idea of the hotel look like and how does the architectural design of the hotel fit into this idea with the specific facilities that are to be incorporated and the different opportunities that can be built in to provide revenues on top of the base-level of guests staying overnight and paying a room rate alone. If a hotel wishes to be remodelled and focus on its restaurant and fine dining, can this be incorporated into the design of the hotel in some way and the functional flow of the hotel?
Once these factors have been worked out, a clear plan of action can be put in place to implement delivery schedules of the remodelling, utilising the experience of the hotel architects to design and build using specific materials that fit with the concept and the ideal, whilst maintaining high functionality.
It is so important that a project to remodel a hotel is undertaken with the help and expertise of experienced architects. Whether it is a relatively modern hotel or an older hotel that requires the eye of heritage conservation architecture experts, the entire process will run smoothly with this kind of assistance. There are many different factors to consider in a remodelling project of any kind, but even more so with the myriad moving parts of a functioning hotel. The exterior aesthetic is important, especially where architecture conservation firms are concerned, but the interior and the plans on how a hotel will function effectively post-remodelling must all come together as one cohesive unit to ensure a successful sign off.
