prizeotel now also shines in Antwerp, Belgium. Situated in the new harbor area “Het Eilandje”, the hotel has top-equipped design rooms, that await you with the latest technology and a 1.80 meters wide comfort bed. The bathroom invites you to relax: it comes equipped with underfloor heating and an XL showerhead.
This budget-design hotel excites the guests not only by its amazing facilities but also by its design. Its beauty lies in the overall experience you get by moving through all the spaces. The designer’s vision was to harmoniously connect design and practicality – to create an atmosphere that interacts with the people through shapes, colors, technique, light, and materials. The goal was to create contemporary locations with an international flair, down to earth, and with the utmost creativity.
“Many times, contemporary design tends to give off a cold, alienated, and inhuman feeling. I want to show the world that today’s physical world can also be warm, soft, human, and comfortable. I use colors and shapes to create an atmosphere and feelings that reach the public. Color isn’t just color. You can touch it, it is strong and it has a physical appearance”, says the designer.
