Going Mod: Hilton Showcases Modular Guestroom

LAS VEGAS—In January, Hilton partnered with Hospitality Design Group and challenged 12 top design firms to a one-of-a-kind design competition—to create the ultimate luxury guestroom in 24 hours. Toronto-based Chapi Chapo Design won the competition by intertwining styles from the 21st century and trends from the 1920s.

Using modular technology, Admares will build the winning guestroom design. Admares CEO Mikael Hedberg said, “This is another great opportunity to work with a world-class partner in the hospitality industry. Admares has successfully completed the Hilton at Resorts World Bimini in the Bahamas so it was a great honor to win the commission for The Hilton Box.” Resorts World Bimini was constructed by Admares with 269 pre-assembled hotel rooms.

Admares will construct a modular guestroom, complete with bath, at HD Expo.

“We have worked on groundbreaking hospitality projects around the world before, but this has been a very special opportunity for us. The benefits of working with the pre-assembly technology of Admares is the level of innovation and technical ambition,” said Leo Eskenazi, senior director of design, Hilton Latin America & The Caribbean. “Collaboration has been very successful due to the vast experience of Admares on such projects of this magnitude, and we are very proud of the result.”

Admares technology has allowed for the majority of the building construction to take place away from the main construction site, with modules delivered to the site and installed in a nearly finished condition, according to the company. By greatly reducing on-site construction, reducing the time to occupancy and producing a high quality product, Admares delivers valuable commercial benefits, according to the company.
