Germany: Frasers Hospitality’s latest Berlin property features interiors by Hamburg-based JOI-Design.

The property on Berlin's Spree Island has a design based around "layers of history", a concept the designers say was inspired by the fascinating heritage of its location at the city square, Petriplatz.

"Integrated with a museum and church as part of a new, one-of-a-kind destination, this fresh and modern long-stay apartment hotel encourages guests to learn about the site's past in a fun and engaging manner," says JOI-Design.
Excavation works carried out from 2007-2009 revealed the island to be the very heart of where modern-day Berlin was first established. Structural traces suggesting how the square was used in centuries past are now celebrated through the Capri by Fraser Berlin's interiors.   

The lobby features a tempered glass floor, allowing guests to see the archaeological dig below. Overhead, a gold, wall-to-wall installation features hexagon-shaped mosaics and perforations that frame a black and white etching of the Spree River's island and its ancient structures. "This striking statement piece has been designed to spark guests' imaginations and their desire to learn more about the birthplace of Berlin. Although a shiny new world lies over the remnants of the city's foundations, the value and richness of past civilisations can still shine through," the company says. 

Guestrooms at Capri by Fraser Berlin have been designed to feel "modern and bright yet comfortably relaxed". Oak detailing and floors are combined with modern furnishings in muted orange and pink tones. Once again, the heritage is an important reference point, with laser-cut wall panels that reveal in orange and pink a map of ancient Petriplatz. This historical reference is also depicted in the abstract rug pattern.
