Designed with the concept of merging elements of nature and technology for guest decor, the WT Hotel project is a partnership between Well-Tech studio and several materials and technology partners, resulting in some very inviting and tech rich accommodations. Eco-friendly materials and solutions are merged with technological details such as smart windows that can be dimmed with liquid crystal, electrochromic, and suspended particle devices, eliminating yesterday's curtains. Touch screen controls are available to change the mood of their room via Jonas Samson designed LED embedded wallpaper, with entertainment offered with BRAVIA series Sony displays.

The WT Hotel at this time is just a conceptual showcase of interior design technologies and materials from various partners, promoting technological innovation, and described as such:

The suite is an oasis of prosperity that welcomes the guests in an environment with clean and essential lines as well as smooth, warm and natural surfaces. The white, neutral and relaxing space, as all the environments in WT Hotel, comes in to life and interacts with the guests, stimulating their emotions and senses. The textile of the walls light up, showing a lightening design of a forest. The closet lightens up with its opening, emphasizing thus the engraved decoration in the interior corian surface. Once the doors close, the curved surfaces returns to be white and neutral.

WT Hotel is designed as a multi-store hotel for an urban area or a tourist’s location. The conjunction of a natural finishing and slats of eco friendly wood make the design orientation natural-technology building externally, the wide windows that communicates the exterior of the building gives the techno-sensory value. The material of the windows is a crystal LCD that discolor with electric drive, the interior of the suite and the various areas of WT Hotel projected different sceneries chosen by the user using a touch screen. This technology in addition to ensuring the privacy and replace the traditional curtains, allows the visitor to create within the various areas, sensorial atmospheres, immersive and changing the external interface, which is characteristic of the building, interacting with the urban context. The horizontal declination of WT Hotel, its developed an designed for an urban area and tourist’s location, the coating wood shaped like a skin to create paths between one building to the other.
