    Splendid photographs and splendid details - an inspiration as I'm just about to go on my very own adventure in less than two days from now.

    I will think back at this thread as I visit some pretty incredible places in the coming weeks.

      There are two pairs of lifts from reception. Not all serve floor 8 where my room is, or the Astrium restaurant, bar and terrace above that. Let me show you around – you’ll have to come with me as my room key card is required to access floors with the exception of Astrium. I can reach floors other than my room location however, and indeed I want to take you to floor 4 first of all.

      We have a fascinating scene right away looking down towards the reception desk through a kind of glass window in which the reflections themselves seem to add to the view's geometry.

        Here walking along that bridge walkway, reception is down below on the left.

          To the right there is a gap between the walkway and an expanse of window.

          Peering down into that void, I find myself looking at the main entrance to the lobby. Perhaps you recognise it from photo #11/1

            Where was wandering along hotel corridors ever this interesting! In this view looking towards one of the bridge walkways, you might at first think that the geometric wall was directly adjacent to the door on the right, but looking more closely you see it is actually at the far end of the bridge and you are looking part way through a glass parapet. Moreover that pointed four-sided mirror is not a mirror at all, but a window into the corridor reached by the bridge!

              So we find ourselves looking down into the Congress area, and a whole wall, with tantalising glimpses of the various levels beyond those geometric windows, plays with our perception of space.

                I found a bridge with the most spectacular view of all, looking at the Congress atrium.

                …in the next instalment let’s look around the Congress area in more detail…

                  Looking towards the separate entrance to the Congress atrium:

                    An excellent muli-functional space, which takes on the feel of different times of day not simply from subtle lighting effects but also from the play of natural light entering the atrium…...



                    ...whilst the pattern of the carpeted area plays with the theme of the faceted walls.

                      Looking now across in the other direction you see it's a huge and imaginative space, yet there is a homely feel to it.

                        Vivid deep reds and blues provide focus points and contrast against the light walls, though I find myself wanting those colours in the poster also (however "green" its message!), leaving the occasional green contrast to the precisely placed plants and trees you saw earlier.

                            Something seemed to catch my eye at every turn. It's impossible to stop taking images like these!

                              Very impressive photography, architecture and patterns. Looking at the hotel from the outside, it certainly doesn't give away much of the perfection inside.

                              It is not before you get inside you start to learn and appreciate all the architectural details.

                                A truly wonderful series of photos but I must say the chair in #27 made me stop scrolling down the page. The straight lines and slight curving of the chair's surface caught my eye for some reason. All beautiful photos but the chair in 27 is my favorite.
