Motel Motel

Motel Motel is located between the main street of Seaside Heights and the boardwalk.  It functions as both a hotel and a public  throughway to the beach.  The notion of the public in this case is considered as an ‘intruder’  – its circulation disrupts the spatial configuration of what otherwise would be a generic motel typology.  The project amplifies various circulation routes – those of the hotel guests, the automobile, the passers-by, the employees, and accentuates their adjacencies and interactions, making one aware of the presence of these different characters.
