Tel Aviv, ISRAEL
The Diaghilev Hotel
The offices of the Diaghilev is the headquarter of the Boutique Live Art Hotel in Tel Aviv. Set over 100 Square metres, the office is a hub for the hotel staff, maintenance, call centre, accounting, exhibitions and events department, in-house cafe administration, and general hotel management.
Arranged around a central workspace, the layout physically, and visually links the private rooms of different hotel departments and distributes daylight to spaces that had previously felt disconnected. The project exposes, in part of the rooms, a previously hidden topology above the office’s familiar suspended ceiling.
Over 50 individually crafted lights, resembling hanging organisms, cling to the ceiling on adjustable mechanical arms. A hidden world is revealed by the shedding of the everyday office aesthetic.
