Hotel Westin Executive Lounge


Beautiful and thoughtfully detailed, this area is a calm and versatile area on the 17th floor of this substantial building. The views across the Warsaw city skyline have brought to spectacular effect, drama, light and space to the Lounge.The extensive use of mirrors,  strategically placed, have created a variety of effects and reflect not only the sky light and the view, but also facilitate connection between people and places as well as elements and activities within.


Considering the project was completed for a very low cost of approximately €200,000.00 what has been achieved in this once little used area is mighty.


The lounge has become a gem on the 17th floor that clients can enjoy and the exclusivity of the pass is worthy of the additional cost.Since the renovation of the new areas, the Hotel has enjoyed repeated great reviews and additional business in room upgrades.


The lounge is now comfortable and easy to use. Clients choose with ease how to  use the space, whether to meet, eat or relax. Clients are able to seek a degree of privacy at the same time connect and to share with others.The buffet area has been completely redesigned to facilitate ease of use and to provide the comfort of luxury in not having to think where things are.


The day time setting is in high contrast to the evening setting when every thing seems to sparkle and residents appear very happy in their surroundings, a haven away from home.


Nature and natural elements with a biophillic and botanical theme, are central to the Westin Brand directives, colour pattern, texture and organic pattern are drawn from this theme to meet the directives. Westin is a 5 star brand where the guest experience focuses on comfort, health and a heavenly experience. The finished project by far exceeds the expectations of the Brand and the owners in respect o achieving the practical solutions the commercial viability and contributing to the stream of fantastic comments regarding the Hotel


The planning was a challenge in this compact space and the Executive Lounge needed to offer haven in a variety of ways informal and relaxed spaces were created to meet and to gather, to eat or to play or relax. Other spaces provided the comfort of discreet connectivity with high bench seating for the lone traveller – connected to the world around as well as the outside by the reflections provided by the mirrors around; some mirror not even noticeable encased with warm honey tones of walnut surrounds and bespoke details.


There is something special about this space calm and refreshing in the day time and exuding warmth and comfort of an evening.


ARID worked very closely with the local team in Poland to ensure that local resources were used where possible without compromise to the aesthetic and comfort of the project.


Polish crafts people  and suppliers are extremely dynamic and were quick to respond to the opportunity of working with us on bespoke pieces.


Where possible and practical sustainable finishes and fabrics such as cork wallcoverings, bamboo fabrics and recycled natural finishes are specified. 


Bolon vinyl flooring is derived from recycled materials and the manufacturer has a commendable reputation for providing a practicable but sustainable product.
