*바우하우스를 재현하다, 소호하우스 호텔 [ Susie Atkinson ] Soho House Berlin

1920년대 바우하우스의 건축적 깊이와 향기를 느낄 수 있는
소호 하우스 베를린은 럭셔리 부티끄 호텔의 또다른 방향성을 제시합니다.
우리는 흔히 공간을 럭셔리하게 만드는 것은 고급재료의 사용과
고급 가구 그리고 거대한 공간을 만드는 것에 국한되어 생각합니다.
하지만 지금의 건축을 있게 만든 바우하우스 시대의 디자인 양식은
시대를 뛰어넘는 고결함과 클래식으로 지금의 어떤 럭셔리와는 차별화되는
리미티드 에디션과 같은 공간을 선사합니다.
그렇게 3층과 6층 사이에 구성된 40개의 룸은 클래식의 노스텔지아를 불러 일으키는
40년대의 데코레이션으로 구현된 패브릭 톤과 유니크 빈티지 가구 그리고 데코 라이트,
고전적인 욕실공간으로 디자인 되었습니다.

여기에 멤버쉽 회원들을 위한 퍼블릭 스페이스인 하이어-스크린 도서관은
30명의 수용인원이 칵테일 모임과 다양한 친목활동을 할 수 있는 공간을 제공합니다.
또한 파티션을 이용한 시크릿 시네마룸의 구성도 가능합니다.

사실 누군가의 눈에는 요사이 유행하는 빈티지로 디자인한 인테리어이구나 라고
할수도 있습니다. 하지만 공간의 진정성은 덧붙여 꾸며서 나오는 것이 아니라
더이상 벗길 것이 없는 순수함 그 자체일때 비로서 구현되지 않을까 생각됩니다.

For those for whom luxury, exclusivity and privacy play an important role, you can always be certain of one thing; in their agendas under ‘favorites’ you are sure to find the name ‘Soho House’. It is a name that has been linked for those who have access, with good food, ambience, lounging Sundays and roof top pools and for those who don’t, with a quest to find a way to get in to this world of privileges. Originally founded in 1995 as a private members’ club for film and media types, now it is a worldwide chain of restaurants, private cinemas, clubs, boutique hotels and brasseries.

Completed in May 2010, the 40 room Soho House Berlin is hosted in the historic 1928' building in Torstrasse, a late Bauhaus structure located in the heart of the Mitte district. Eagerly anticipated by Berlin’s buzzing elite, its opening it did not disappoint with its black and white tiled flooring throughout, oversized seating, fireplaces, club floor, rooftop swimming pool and panoramic views of the Mitte district.


The interior design of the building is collaboration between Soho House’s in-house designer Susie Atkinson and the newly commissioned Michaelis Boyd Associates (Tim Boyd and Alex Michaelis). This team work has successfully brought a sense of the old Berlin lifestyle into the rawness and nakedness of today where exposed concrete beams are combined with traditional paneling to create this marriage of two styles.


Our favorite feature in this hotel is their signature room. This is none other then the 30 seat private hire-screening library. The night here starts at the library for a good old fashion cocktail/socializing and then the doors to the cinema open for the privileged crowd to enjoy. Guests then go on to the ‘Red Room’, a boutique disco with a daily changing program so that no night is ever the same. On the upper levels running from the 3rd – 6th floor the 40 bedrooms are reminiscent of the nostalgia of the early days that have gone by. The 1930’s & 40’s decoration presented through fabric tones, unique furniture pieces,  deco lighting and old world sanitary ware is certainly a successful one. However, the true trademark of the past is simply stated through the free standing bath in the bedroom complete with a lady blowing away the bubbles while her one leg is elevated in a most statuesque manner.

So yes, Soho House has definitely arrived in Berlin, Germany, with no inhibitions or reservations and every one wants a taste of it.



>> Berlin is an incredible city filled with an incredible vibe – for me it’s just an exciting place to be. This building struck me immediately as a place that we could create a Soho House – its history and substance have allowed us to do everything we wanted within the space. I hope that this will be a place where our members can meet, can talk, can swim, can just have fun - but also be place that connects our hotel guests with that same exciting Berlin that I have discovered <<
