Microtel Gets New Prototype
Hoefer Wysocki collaborated on architecture
Economy brand Microtel by Wyndham has unveiled its newest prototype, Moda, a reimagined interior and exterior concept that company leaders say will reduce building costs, optimize efficiencies and drive greater returns for developers. The prototype is part of Wyndham’s new construction growth strategy.
Developed in partnership with Microtel owners and architectural firm Hoefer Wysocki, Moda integrates contemporary architecture, wall-hung furniture and minimalist interior design that the brand hopes will appeal to millennials as well as business and leisure travelers.
The exterior design includes a four-story exterior facade option and showcases a new, flat-roof design to elevate Microtel’s visibility, signage and status from its previous pitched-roof design. The building is sleeker, reducing the total number of cut-outs in the foundation by modeling a Bauhaus architectural style at 34,700 to 35,700 sq. ft. The design changes also minimize land requirements by 11%.
Meanwhile, the interior design will be more modular in nature by uniformly positioning guestrooms by unit type allowing for natural building breaks and flow. Wall-mounted headboards, desks and TVs will help the housekeeping staff to turn rooms faster.
