What requirements will serviced apartments have to fulfil tomorrow?
A glimpse of the future with KEUCO
Feeling at home when abroad: A short, medium or long-term stay in a fully furnished serviced apartment, equipped with all the paraphernalia of daily life, can be booked in many cities. Customers can move in straight away with their luggage, even staying several months. With the declared goal of understanding today the needs of the traveller of tomorrow, the project team from Apartmentservice, JOI-Design, G&S Planwerk GmbH and iHaus has implemented real model apartments for various target groups.
The Apartment.Base 4.0 project undertakes the exhibition-like marketing of all forms of micro-living. These can be viewed in an impressive exhibition space in Unna, Dortmund. Various residential visions for student halls, micro-apartments and alternative serviced apartments have been equipped multifunctionally, efficiently and flexibly, showing how space can be sensibly divided up.
The core of the exhibition is the two “apartments of the future”, aimed at creating a pleasant living experience in an unknown city through smart features, designer products and technical refinement. With its comprehensive product portfolio, KEUCO offers individual solutions for creative and demanding bathroom planning, supplementing the project perfectly as a strong partner in bathroom furnishings. The KEUCO range includes fittings, accessories, mirror cabinets and light mirrors, basins and bathroom furniture in a wide range of materials, surfaces and designs for every taste and budget – whether for the business traveller or the student apartment.
The initiators’ goal is to support the synergies of suppliers, developers and investors in micro-apartments on a shared platform. Their task is to develop a pioneering concept taking account of the demands and wishes of guests in this sector. Entry into this rising market segment is to be made easier for investors and potential providers – and they should be allowed to profit from the participants’ extensive knowledge of the sector.
Not least, the apartment ought to function as a platform and exhibition space for companies that have made a lasting impression on the project partners through innovative interior design and future-oriented technology.
