New W Hotel in Seattle has recently completed by Skylab Architecture and mixes symphony and grunge. The interior design reflects elements of Seattle, creating a unique and stylised image of the city. Lodge poles define the space, rhythmically employing existing structural columns into a composition of new 6m tall interior pilings. These stacked pilings intercept sitelines, creating an experience of walking under the wharf. They resemble log buildings, totems and even contemporary urban form. Ambiguity makes vibrant their mystery.
