The extremely modest and simple materiality: marble, coated steel, fair-fared concrete, glass. Light creates the atmosphere in the Room of Christ; in the middle top light falls down from the column heads, vertically highlighting the slender columns. The enclosing surface, 11 mm glass panes in combination with 10 mm finely cut, crystalline marble from the Greek island Naxos, is a single-shell construction. Its vivid translucence influences the room atmosphere in such a way, that the space remains contemplative-introverted despite the intensive lighting.

Air conditioning causes the fabric sheets to sway and ripple across the ceiling. More hotels on Dezeen »
about - kokkugia Kokkugia is an experimental architecture research collaborative exploring generative design methodologies developed from the complex self-organising behavior of biological,social and material systems. Kokkugia is led by Roland Snooks and Robert Stuart-Smith, with labs in Melbourne and London, operating through design experimentation, research and teaching. While Kokkugia's role is highly speculative - to imagine the future. The partners of Kokkugia, Roland Snooks and Robert Stuart-Smith, also direct separate architectural practices which provide architectural services: Studio Roland Snooks and RS-SDesign. The two practices operate independently from Melbourne and London respectively but continue to collaborate on strategic projects such as their recent Astana 2017 Expo scheme. Kokkugia’s work has been published extensively and exhibited internationally, including in New York, London, Paris, Melbourne, Shanghai, Beijing, Moscow, Kiev, Philadelphia and San Francisco.
