The Golden Bay Hotel is a development designed by WTA Architecture and Design Studio to cater to the big number of locals, businessmen and women, and tourists who visit the Bay City area of Manila. The fluidity in its design breaks horizontal barriers and creates a movement that promotes interaction. A curved walkway was incorporated at the center of the rectangular site defining the initial narrative of the project. A vertical hole was added to connect the elements surrounding the space, creating a form of a plaza or social space.
Given that the program includes uses for offices, commercial and hospitality, the towers were defined and situated to consider the social space below and at the center of the whole site. Movement through a diversity of spatial volumes will create harmonious and interactive energy that strengthens the community that will use the space.
