Royal Tulip Warsaw Apartments

by Tremend

Finalist: The Elite Awards 2024

Elite Awards 2024

Royal Tulip Warsaw is a modern apart-hotel that creates new category in hospitality: a hybrid of luxury hotel, home and office. Today, Grzybowska Street is associated with high-rise buildings, and hotels often referred to as the centre of business, and has become an ideal place for Royal Tulip Warsaw Apartments.

The rich history of the place, as well as of Warsaw itself, became an inspiration for Tremend architects who were responsible for the interior design of Royal Tulip Warsaw Apartments They created a unique concept whose leitmotif is the capital with its districts, a kind of “Warsaw puzzle.”

The designers proposed that the ground floor of the building would be a kind of map of Warsaw. Inspired by the great district plan of the capital from the 1920s, they alluded to its shape and the arrangement of its districts. In the common areas you can find analogies to parts of the city such as Wola, Śródmieście or Żoliborz. Hence, in the entrance area guests find themselves on the border of the two districts of Śródmieście and Wola, just like Grzybowska Street, which is a common part for both.


The bar area is inspired by Powiśle. The very colours allude to the landscape, the blue reflects the deep tundra of the Vistula River, while the green and wood, are the wooded waterfront areas and the boulevards. The neon POW sign with woven-in wave symbols is a shorthand for Powiśle. The mirror is finished in reference to the reflections appearing on the surface of the Vistula on a sunny day. In the metalwork installation on the wall, one can easily spot the Warsaw Mermaid. Tremend architects also alluded to the architecture of the capital. The structure over the bar – is a nod to the Poniatowski Bridge, the one over the live cooking area, on the other hand, is the Gdansk Bridge. In the structure over the buffet, you can find inspiration from the Silesian-Dabrowski Bridge.

For Tremend Architects, working on this project was a very creative process that began from the interest in Warsaw tiles gorseciki and the 1920s plan of the city and transformed into a tribute to Warsaw’s history, architecture and its atmosphere.
