The fifth edition of the MAMA Shelter series in Bordeaux, France has recently been introduced to us by world-renowned French interior designer Philippe Starck. The architect designed a shelter that is inspired by the desire to create a space that comes with a creative sense of hospitality and relaxation. Starck manages to take into account all of these factors and the result is the creation of a space that is vibrantly energetic, while still retaining elements of a sanctuary for its guests and visitors.
The shelter is located in the heart of Bordeaux and it is fitted with a restaurant, a cocktail bar, a pizzeria, a wine bar and 97 guest rooms. The Bordeaux shelter takes on a speakeasy type atmosphere, where the entrance of the shelter is completely discrete and not easily discernible.
