Aukett Swanke designed ‘Bivouac’, a 1:1 mock-up of a prototype concept hotel room, which was constructed for the 2016 Sleep Hotel Design Expo.
Designed for a ‘sensation-oriented’ guest, the room fuses architecture and interior design to create an immersive environment, which fully engages the guest’s tactile, visual and acoustic sense of the space.
Incorporating a sleeping area, a social space and bathroom area, the mesh-lined room has an integrated, fully programmable lighting system which, for the show, was set to mimic a circadian cycle, with morning, afternoon and evening settings. The set was constructed off-site and assembled in only three days using seventy two, safely and easily handled, individual modular cassettes which were cut directly from the Revit model.
