A stay at the W Hotel inTaipei, Taiwanbecomes an exciting experience thanks to the brilliant use of color throughout. Laminated glass makes a statement in every aspect of the design, from the bathrooms and bedrooms to the hotel’s outer walls. The translucence provided by the use of this material made it possible for the architects to create an open, continuous interior space design that still feels comfortable to residents of the hotel.

No longer do the suites at the W conform to the typical austere design used by so many hotels. Instead, laminated glass in a misty color inspired by the soft light of Chinese lanterns has replaced lackluster white doors and clear glass partitions. Combined with soft lighting and punctuated with other laminated glass elements in colors like vivid orange, bright green and deep red, the space becomes even more exciting and diverse.

The designers of the W Hotel tried several different options before settling on the use of Vanceva® interlayers for laminated glass to color their space. Vanceva® afforded the architects beautiful design without having to sacrifice the commitment to safety that the hotel owners desired. The end result is a stunning mix of neutral and colorful elements that blend together smoothly, providing visitors with the most comfortable stay possible.
