This project is to design a boutique hotel combined with a luxury brand in Palm Springs, California. My chosen brand is “GENTLE MONSTER,” an eyewear/sunglasses brand established in Seoul, South Korea in 2011.
The hotel is located in the Palm Springs desert overlooking the Tahquitz Canyon. It includes 16 rooms, a second-floor building with a lobby, restaurant, outdoor pool, and outdoor sittings.
The story of the hotel is primarily about experiencing illusion. Although the building looks like a first floor in appearance, it actually consists of two floors, and the spiral walls inside the building make you dream of an illusion that will last forever.
