Would you like to climb to your Hotel room? When you are visiting a family hotel in the City Center, it would be awesome to check in and bouldering your way to your room or suite…together with your family or friends perhaps. A climbing wall positioned by the check-in desk directly in the lobby. This could be the next thing in combining leisure with pleasure. Be active, playful and have a healthy lifestyle all the way…
The WATERWOLF PROJECT AIMES TO stimulate children, adolescence & elderly to play & sport more by participating in diverse physical activities. By creating the Wave we stimulate those physical activities by a physical design object & developing new physical activities in combination with “online” games played by the pool. So we connect the physical environment with online gaming and creating an immersive element to the pool.
Innovation by participating a tender
Erik; “Do you have the time and energy to participate? I have seen a very nice project to improve the swimming and playing experience in swimming pools…” Koen, “uhh yes, seems like a challenge to me…” Erik ; “We have to hand in the draft plan in two weeks!” Koen; “Okay, then let’s get to work!” With a group of 7 people, pure enthusiasm and a good dose of energy we got to work, we hardly knew each other, but the ideas just exploded. Two brainstorming sessions and 1.5 weeks later, the input of 7 communication flows had to fit into 1 presentation. We were able to hand in the presentation 5 minutes before the deadline. Now 2 weeks to wait for the results…
As it turns out, the result is negative, for us that is positive, like a corona test result! Why then, we would ask ourselves. In such a short time new ideas have emerged with an energetic group of people whom I hardly knew until recently. Perhaps for this project we wanted to do too much, show too much, making the concept difficult to understand. This project “The Waterwolf” is therefore not an end point, but a learning process. We are going to focus, further develop the concept in a targeted manner! Thanks for this experience Bravoere, Nomoremondays, Roversnest, InnoSportLab Sport & Beweeg

Indoor & outdoor leisure concept “Family by JW – where PLAY feels Natural”
Due to the Corona virus all our ongoing projects facing delay. We are glad to say that these projects are not cancelled. We have to stay positive and we try to work also on the process after Corona. During the Coronavirus crises we are working on an indoor and outdoor leisure family concept for JW Marriott Hotels & Resorts.
Studio Stoerrr has joined a great project. A tender for a total concept for a 5 star resort in Madeira, to redevelop a plot of 16 hectare. The Hotel building, the lobby, accommodations, restaurants, pools, SPA, the Marina, outdoor area’s and of course lots of leisure and family fun indoor as well as outdoor.

Total Concept Development Hotel included Leisure facility & activity development
Redesign of all area’s indoor as well as outdoor – Restyle of all interiors (Villa’s, Appartments, Lobby, Restaurants, Retail etc.)
The worktitle for this pre-concept project is “Behind the Hilltops”
Just behind the hilltops lies a wonderful world worth exploring, where the very best that Madeira has to offer can be discovered in a tranquil, beautiful natural setting, right by the sea.
Different worlds collide here to form an intriguing and engaging holiday resort which will satisfy multiple target groups. Families with children looking for fun and relaxation, young adventurous couples and the older generation interested in culture, active holidays and traditional Portuguese cuisine.
Old world meets new world as we reinvent the idea of a traditional Portuguese fishing village by adding hip design that uses typical Madeiran influences, great locally sourced food and a wide range of activities, both active and relaxing which will please all generations.
Life behind the hills is Madeira as it was meant to be. With the warmth of both the sun and friendly smile of locals turning holidays into one big family affair where everybody feels welcome and will be ensured an unforgettable experience. The new hotel will become a home from home, providing a stress free, nature, health and local food inspired holiday with a strong authentic yet modern Madeira flavour.
Life behind the hills is not only real celebration of the best of Madeiran food & culture & style & life philosophy, but also a place to relax, rejuvenate and recharge those batteries.
We Keep you posted regarding this amazing challenge!

The 21st century guest is used
to experiencing digital self- service wherever they go. At airports, train stations, movie theatres
and even at fast food restaurants. One area where this has not yet happened is
When guests enter a lobby they are usually
faced with an enormous front desk where they have to stand in line to check in
and wait for their credit card to be checked before they receive the key to
For some guests this can be a daunting and
tiring process. Especially after a long days travelling, with an energetic and
impatient 5 year old in tow. Sometimes you just want to walk in, get face to
face friendly service and get to your room for that refreshing shower as
quickly as possible, without having to listen to the complaints of other guests
waiting in line before you.
So why not streamline this process. Shorten
the waiting time and give your guests a warmer welcome? How? By ditching the
desk and implementing new technology to automate the check in.
By Removing the physical barrier between
host and guest, you have the opportunity to create a more personal, human touch.
Welcome your guests as if into your home, into a living room type atmosphere
with cosy check in lounges where guests have the freedom to check in
themselves, but can also ask a personal check in assistant for help if
required. One who actually makes eye contact with you and smiles instead of
staring at his computer screen while he checks your details.
First impressions are everything. So why not design the perfect environment to warmly welcome your guests in your lobby and use technology to speed up the check in process. This way you can also turn your reception area into a multi functional area that is 100% in line with your overall hotel concept.
So if you’re ready to give
your guests the 21st century welcome they deserve and desire, ditch
the desk! Replace it with a homely welcome area. Add a little fun and a large
dose of technology and be amazed at what you can achieve.
