THDP designs Pigeon Post Bar and Eatery at Hilton Cologne
Hospitality experts THDP have revealed their design for the new Pigeon Post Bar & Eatery at Hilton Cologne, referencing the building’s long history as a post office.
Woodhouse (one of our newest buildings) is a hybrid structure comprising a beech LVL frame with CLT slabs and core. CLT consists of planks of sawn, glued, and layered wood with each layer oriented perpendicular to the former. Joining layers of wood at perpendicular angles creates structural rigidity for the panel in both directions, resulting in greater tensile and compressive strength. Using engineered timber as opposed to concrete and steel has reduced our embodied carbon by 60%, yet still allowed us to create large open workspaces with minimal column
Upholstery and drapery are both significant elements within The OfficeGroup workspaces. We work closely with Kvadrat on our specifications, being mindful of roll sizes to minimise waste and retaining excess fabric for reupholstery. Their newer collections, such as Re-wool and Revive, which have a high proportion of recycled yarns and a beautiful depth of colour, have been used extensively in our recent projects.
We are delighted to be collaborating withStudio David Thulstrup, and recentlyv isited their Momentum collection for Søuld (the first company to convert eelgrass into a building material). Momentum creatively reimagines the material into a series of furniture pieces. This organic material has an incredible range of properties, from its high acoustic performance to its inherent fire resistance. As an abundant and renewable resource, we are incredibly excited to further explore the potential of Søuld.
Upcycling as much waste as possible and transforming it into unique and beautiful building materials is the ethos behind Stonecycling. We have selected their product range, 2Good2Waste, for both the façade cladding of the central building extension and the garden flooring in one of our upcoming workspaces. 2Good2Waste is designed as a brickslip, which reveals the inside of the brick (a combination of discarded ceramics, crushed toilet bowls and other ingredients.)
