Astana’s first boutique hotel is designed to cater for local and business travellers looking for something a little more interesting than the standard global hospitality aesthetic. Atomik developed the concept and design for the hotel, which is inspired by Kazakhstan’s past and present culture, and an imagined future reality. Instead of televisions and trouser-presses, the rooms are equipped with high-end audio equipment, vintage and contemporary Kazakhstani furniture, yoga mats and specially-commissioned artworks from the Almaty Design School.
