Yabu Pushelberg Hotels

I am always amazed at the elegant simplicity in the work of Canadian duo Yabu Pushelberg. Their work is so warm , yet so pared back. The palettes they use are always simple, so that one can easily notice the refined understanding of proportion and rigorous attention to detail they pursue. Here are a few images from their hotel projects.

They repeat similar geometric screens elements, adapted with different materiality.

Not much bold colour for a W branded hotel! Good to see.


Four Seasons Hotel Toronto. It’s all about repetition.


Verticality, broken by distant horizontal lines, with gently curved chairs.
