The Goldkind Hotel Was Converted from an Old Dilapidating Farmhouse

The Goldkind Hotel was transformed from an old farmhouse into a homey hotel space. The hotel takes advantage of minimalist and modern design, while creating functional open-concept layouts.

In utilizing an existing structure, architects were forced to strategically knock down walls to create a more open floor plan, but also keep the building structurally sound. The renovation resulted in large apartment-like units, equipped with large bathrooms and kitchens. To pay homage to the Goldkind Hotel's previous purpose, exposed wooden beams were retained in the upper floors. This detail gives each room some character, while paying homage to its farmhouse origins. Exposed brick from the farmhouse complements the wooden beams which gives this contemporary hotel a touch of rustic tradition.
