Brazilian architect Isay Weinfeld showcased the Square Nine Hotel at Belgrade, Serbia, with collaboration done with architect Domingos Pascali. This was project managed by Elena Scarabotolo; and the design team involved Adriana Aun, Adriana Zampieri and Ilza Fujimura.
Square Nine Hotel is located in Belgrade’s historic quarter, across from Students Square (Studentski Trg). On the ground level, the common areas are integrated, with the lobby, the restaurant and a little piazza succeeding one another. On the basement level, a swimming pool is haloed by a beam of natural light; it is succeeded by a gym, spa and sauna. On the top floor is a small bar that overlooks the square across the street.
The hotel’s rooms have three categorizations: 344 square foot or 505 square foo) double rooms, and 968 square foot suites. These take up five levels of the building, totaling 45 units.
Each of the property’s floor features a different hall adjacent to the lifts, boasting custom-made furniture pieces. The choice of materials that include wood, stone and leather, as well as the furnishings that include a selection of vintage pieces by Scandinavian and North American designers from the 1930s to the 1960s, are also featured.
