The Kohler Bold Design Awards dinner will take place on 9 February 2018 at the Solaire Hotel in Manila, Philippines. At this first edition of the KBDA, the most outstanding and remarkable design projects from the Asia Pacific region and in particular from the Philippines will be recognized. The jury has shortlisted three projects per category. Following is the shortlist for the subcategory Travel urban hotels:
Seda BGC Hotel
The expansion of Seda BGC Hotel is an upgraded design and new structure of the original older hotel. The designers introduced a few color accents to enhance the neutral architecture and raise the elegance. In the interiors, contemporary Filipino art is helping to bring out subtle upgrades of the design and makes this project really stand out.
