Airport City Hotel
First Phase Delievered

Haptic, in collaboration with Nordic - Office of Architecture in Norway have delivered phase 1 of the draft project for Hotel BLU by Bergen Airport. The hotel will be located a short distance from the new airport terminal and will be highly visible from both the terminal in the northwest and the future business park in the south.

The ho­tel is sched­uled to open in the au­tumn of 2016, well be­fore the open­ing of Bergen Air­port's new ter­mi­nal in 2017. It will in­clude 300 rooms over three floors as well as all other ho­tel fa­cil­i­ties. Con­fer­ence cen­tre, restau­rant, lobby bar, fit­ness cen­tre and kitchen area is lo­cated on the ground floor, while car park­ing spaces, de­liv­er­ies, stor­age and util­ity rooms will be un­der ground.

The con­cept is based on a com­pact and free form, where the build­ing is wrapped around an open court­yard, pro­vid­ing the ho­tel func­tions on the ground floor with good lighting conditions. The build­ing shape is re­in­forced with sur­face- sus­pended ver­ti­cal screens rang­ing in den­sity and cre­at­ing in­ter­est­ing in­ter­ac­tion with the un­der­ly­ing win­dows.

A dis­tinc­tive land­mark ho­tel of high ar­chi­tec­tural value will en­rich the de­vel­op­ment po­ten­tial for both the ad­ja­cent air­port and future busi­ness park.
