JOI-Design completes Hilton Munich Airport extension inspired by the Bavarian Alps

Conceived as a mountain hub inspired by the nearby Bavarian Alps, the new 162-room annex has guestrooms crafted with natural and locally sourced materials.

JOI-Design has completed the new guestrooms in the extension of the Hilton Munich Airport between Terminals 1 and 2.

Conceived as a mountain hub inspired by the nearby Bavarian Alps, the new 162-guestroom annex has accommodations crafted with natural and locally sourced materials, including pale honey-toned oak, gray stone, wool felt and sage green carpeting that bears a bird’s eye pattern of the mountains. Matte, organic finishes contrast the black desk chair clad with a glossy, fiberglass shell. There are also full-height, soundproof windows.

Each 323-square-foot guestroom has benches upholstered in felt and integrated with charging points. Above the bench hangs art crafted from laser-engraved limed oak in a pattern inspired by maps of airline routes. This motif appears again on glazed tiles inset into partitions between the bedrooms and bathrooms, and accent tiles alongside the bathtub. There are also leather-clad closet doors and a backlit headboard, all stitched to depict an Alpine mountain range. Chaise loungers and black chairs are inspired by the designs of Hans Wegner.
