The concept of the Ripple Hotel is derived from the Old Port of Montreal. This harbor plays an important role in the development of the area. All varieties of foreign cultures entered this city from here. The effects of these cultures are like ripples spreading out into the city. Celebrating this cultural ripple effect, the Ripple Hotel floor plan is circular in the public space to let visitors interact with people who have different stories. In this way, the cultural ripple effect is continued. Lighting is considered as critical material to give the space a mysterious but romantic atmosphere.
