The A by Adina brand provides a new concept of ‘hotel living’, which creates a premium full-service hotel experience within an upscale apartment stay. The new hotel features 130 rooms over 4 floors.

The balance between a hotel and private apartment is key to the brands ethos. Exceptional room design and use of space was extremely important in creating the home-away-from home experience for guests. Bates Smart implemented linear sliding doors into the design, to divide the living room from the bedroom, allowing guests to be flexible in how they operate the space. Offering the duality of an apartment and luxury hotel style stay in the one suite.

The 90° corner linear sliding doors when closed appear to look like two static walls. However when open completely transform the space by opening up the corner to reveal an open plan living room. 

Häfele project support assisted by offering technical advice to the Bates Smart design team during the planning phase of the project. Taking in consideration both the design intention and budgetary needs of the project to achieve the best outcome. Häfele’s HAWA Junior 80B was selected, paired with a confort guide to achieve the telescopic, sliding and stacking functionality of the longest double door span. 

A sliding entry door on the hall side of the suite also offers a space saving solution by avoiding a swing door as the main entry into the bedroom.

Individual construction site logistics and delivery capability, allowed Häfele to be the perfect partner for successful delivery and handover of this exclusive project.
