The second edition of The House Hotel occupies a central location in the city’s toniest shopping and residential district, Nişantaşı, offering a modern guest experience and pit stop of contemporary design in the heart of Istanbul.
Set in a 2,200 sqm relatively new building, the hotel accommodates 45 rooms of five types over six floors with a library on the first floor. Lobby, restaurant, meeting room, and the bar are also located on this floor overlooking the busy shopping street below.
Each of the 45 rooms as well as the shared areas are wallpapered by a layered interior shell made of oak panels. The rooms feature a bar, a wine rack, and an exposed bathroom with floor-to-ceiling glass that can be shuttered with Venetian blinds, if desired. The bathrooms are clad with black-veined white Carrera marble on both floors and walls, bordered with beige Bursa marble.
In designing the interiors of the hotel, Autoban imagined a fictional old Istanbul family living in this four-storied townhouse, and thereby retained many of its original features including the stairs, handrails and hall doors, to recover and broadcast the spirit of the area’s past while inserting today’s textures and forms.
Furniture-wise, The House Hotel Nişantaşı debuts the studio’s Daisy Series consisting of bed, coffee table, side table and lamps. Throne Sofa along with its armchair versions, Nest Lounge Chair, Hong Kong Square Table, the Holy and Scrub tables, two custom editions of Reedy Bookcase as well as Butterfly Chair and Magnolia pendant lamp are also used throughout the ‘respectfully deluxe’ interiors of the hotel.
