Read & Rest Boutique Hotel is Office AIO new attempt in promoting a lifestyle balanced between curiosity and calmness. Designed to be a hotel with a library, the hotel features a dramatic telescopic portal into the humble entrance and its subsequent intimate journey. Themagazine library is shaped by several recessed caves and a corridor, through repetition and symmetry to enhance concentration and inspire exploration of the mind. The muted colours, natural veins of oak and stone throughout the hotel and its guest rooms, indulge its visitors like a "quiet nest" that soothe the senses.
