SOF Hotel is hidden among the ruins of the Central District of Taichung City, Taiwan. The area is a showcase of raw materials in their most beautiful form, naturally worn away. The hotel takes inspiration from this as does the brand identity work created by Pop & Pac.
The hotel’s brand is rooted in earthy colors and a masterful use of grid layouts. Highly detailed illustrations of local flora create an even deeper connection to the environment and earth.
As a brand, this is beautifully controlled and precise. Structure creates a sense of calm and relaxation and the reconnection to earthly elements gives on the sense of stability and purity.
