The ibis budget Tbilisi was opened in may 2022 in Georgia. The crucial task
for STUDIO SHOO was to develop public areas for the Ibis Budget brand, completely
transforming budget brands’ way of thinking about technical and functional
equipment.
The hotel building is ideally situated on Akhvlediani St, which is relatively
popular among locals and the city’s guests with its bar, pubs and restaurants. Local
street art and music instantly became an inspiration for the lobby design.
We came up with a design that creates a heartwarming, friendly, eyecatching
interior space for the brand. Blue here is the dominant colour (which
popped up earlier for Ibis Budget); we also added light blue and bright colourful
accents: red and yellow.
The reception desk, cupboards, the ping pong table, printed with
Georgian letters sofa and vinyl-made lighting fixtures — all these were properly
designed according to our team’s sketches. Behind the front desk in the shape of
musicassette, we designed a shelf for a unique collection of vintage vinyl records.
The graphic and smooth letters of the Georgian alphabet undoubtedly
became a creative inspiration for us. It can definitely be observed on wall panels and
as a unique print for sofas.– says Shushana Khachatrian, the lead architect.
In a concept design we have wall panelling of natural plywood colour, graffiti
that strikingly illustrates musicians and matching it with bright accentual lighting
fixtures and furniture. Vivid colours efficiently deliver a dazzling effect and naturally
tend to trigger interest.
We carefully turned a public space into a conspicuous social place for
everyone with distinct preferences and possibilities: a play area with ping pong
table and PlayStation, a space for business meetings and calls, a private sector for
amiable conversations, a market zone with local products (Georgian cheese and
wine) and most importantly, a barrier-free area for the physically challenged.
