The second Superbude affordable hotel come hostel recently opened in Hamburg. The establishment is located in the lively area of St. Pauli and was designed by the German interdisciplinary design practice of Dreimeta.
Situated in a regenerated 1926 building which once housed the Hamburg telephone exchange, Superbude St. Pauli exhibits the same degree of individuality and eclectic design aesthetics as the original St. Georg hotel. A playground of creativity with fascinating details at every turn, each space with its own identity created by newspaper inspired wall coverings, sheepskin lined wheelbarrow armchairs and the quirky Chesterfield style leather armchairs placed unexpectedly on revolving wheels.
Stained yellow timber details link the spaces, as does the signature rope design of the brand, which appears throughout the hotel. Custom made furniture and industrial light fittings in the public areas and the bespoke room details set this hotel apart. Most notable is the Rockstar Suite, a one of a kind type of guest room, complete with a raised stage with lighting and sound equipment which converts to a bed which sleeps six! The designers’ intention was to combine functional aspects with emotional appeal through unexpected design solutions. When approaching any of their projects they promise: ‘to use their ideas for courageous interpretation and fortification of the client’s identity and philosophy.’
