When building a hotel, the location is extremely important. It can decide the popularity and success of the project right from the start. Then there’s also the actual design and the structure of the hotel. For the POD hotel, none of these elements were a problem. Located in Cape Town, South Africa, the hotel benefits from stunning views and it has a modern and very well-defined design.
The design of the hotel was envisioned by Greg Wright Architects and the result was this luxurious structure. Completed in 2012, the POD hotel offers 15 rooms, all with panoramic views over Camps Bay Beach, Table Mountain, Lions Head or the 12 Apostles. The position and orientation of the hotel were crucial in determining that. But the hotel doesn’t stand out just because of that. This project is also individualized by a series of other details.
There are many features that make this hotel unique and wonderful and they include the 2-storey fins on the penthouse suites from where you can admire the entire surrounding landscape, the beautiful entrance area and the feature walls made of scaffold planks that were recycled from the building site as well as a series of stylish interior design features such as the organic shape of the bar, the ice wells and the beautiful stairwell that connects 4 levels. In addition, each room is unique and features an open space layout and a color palette inspired by the materials used in the project.
