Double Tree by Hilton in Surabaya is one of several recent projects of PTI`s Interior Design Group. Responding to its branding tagline of "warm, comfortable, smart", the concept proposed a contemporary design incorporating the elements of the local Chinese-Javanese cultures embodying a sense of place. The use of screens with interesting patterns common in the homes of locales is applied as a special design feature recurring throughout the public spaces. Another local design inspiration is the batik pattern translated into a modern look. A warm color palette in shades of brown, beige and rust with a splash of teal blue gives it an overall "homey" atmosphere where personal service to a hotel guest starts with a warm chocolate cookie.
