Designing a hotel rooftop is no easy feat, especially if you plan to convert it into a lounge. Not only will you have to consider the material, costs and which contractor can get the job done correctly, but you’ll also have to make it as spacious and aesthetically pleasing as possible. Thankfully, there are ways to make the design process a little easier for you.
Rooftop lounges on hotels are vulnerable to strong winds. So, to minimize any damage that storms can cause, consider adding a few walls to reduce the breezes. However, the reinforcing doesn’t stop there; you’ll also have to make sure that whatever you put on that rooftop is structurally reinforced and tied down to the building to prevent them from flying off, especially furniture.
Shades and Covers
The day can be ridiculously hot and uncomfortable no matter where you are so your roofing company will likely recommend that you add some shade to the area. You can add umbrellas to each table or a misting system to make your patrons of the lounge comfortable during their stay. Don’t forget to add a few covers to prevent birds from hanging around your rooftop lounge too much as well. Otherwise, they can be a health hazard and inconvenience for your customers.
Know What the Demographic Wants
If you plan to open up a rooftop lounge, make sure you know what your target demographic wants. By doing so, you won’t only be able to determine how long the lounge stays open, but you’ll also be able to plan the design according to their aesthetic wants as well. When it comes to designing a hotel rooftop, the rule of thumb is that a pool should always be part of the design.
