Hotel Seeko'o. Bordeaux. Jean-Christophe Masnada. 2007. France

Jean-Christophe Masnada,

Bordeaux, France,


The colour of ice, simple design and ultra-pure form: the facade of the elegant Hotel Seeko'o in Bordeaux's port district was designed by Jean-Christophe Masnada of King Kong studio.

Hotel Seeko'o. Bordeaux. Jean-Christophe Masnada. 2007. France The building has a sculptural appearance with simple lines but a dynamic dialogue between planes and angles, openings, shadows and light. The hotel rooms have views over the Garonne.
The interior is left as "free" as possible. The bathrooms are inside the rooms, divided from them by a screen for privacy. The architect's motto is "simplicity, from ceiling to carpet". The geometry of the bathroom sinks recalls that of the building as a whole. The counter 4.5 metre long counter in the hall is also made of corian, replicating the facade.
The building has 5 floors, with 45 luxuriously furnished rooms measuring from 27 to 55 square metres (five rooms on the top floor have a terrace with a panoramic view over the Garonne) as well as a great hall (180 m2) and a cocktail bar (150 m2), a wellness centre and a conference room, all at a cost of 4.2 million euro.
The project manages to integrate a contemporary sign into a historic city thanks to the simplicity of its design and the architect's choice of colours.
