Feasibility study conducted for 120-bed hotel complex on the banks of The Rhine 

Professor Henner Herrmanns and Hung Nguyen of Herrmanns-Architects have shared with us their design for a waterfront hotel complex in the World Heritage Middle Rhine Valley. Situated near Koblenz in Urbar, Germany, the development would merge a 120-bed hotel into the existing landscape.

Herrmanns-Architects have undertaken a feasibility scheme for the hotel complex, with investors said to be ‘very pleased’ with the results. A statement reads: “Three aspects were important. The design must reflect a compelling concept, show a quality edifice and make it clear that the building blends urban development in the area.”

The team foresees a ‘high chance of realisation’ with the potential for construction to commence in 2015/16. Renderings released by Herrmanns-Architects show a ribbon of hotel rooms along the bank of the river, with rooms angled to benefit from optimum sightlines across the Rhine.

Interior designs are said to be ‘unpretentious’, with elegant finishes and natural materials utilised throughout. These materials will be sourced locally and the intention is to create a ‘cosy’ atmosphere for visitors to this World Heritage location. A large spa is also included in the plans with a sauna and indoor and outdoor pools.
