In part of a massively cool expansion initiative, the W Hotels has opened it’s super chic new Paris property, today, yes, literally today! As we are drafting this article, dashingly stylish doorman are rolling out the red carpet for the elite jet setters who frequent W establishments around the world. The 91 room hotel has taken over a historical 1870 building just steps away from the Garnier Opéra House.
Just because the W community is expanding, doesn’t mean they leave their identity at the door as the trot from spot to spot. You can still expect high design mixed with modern technology. Because in Paris, otherwise known as the city of lights, the design team Rockwell Group Europe in collaboration with W Global Brand Design decided to bring lighting features into the space in integral ways. An awesome example being the curvacious black wall that whips around the bar and into the hotel’s restaurant. The high gloss black partition has tiny holes in it and are back lit to create a vibrant space, especially for the night owls.
The hotel has a bold contrasting color palette of black, red, and white, but the seemingly modern palette fits perfectly inside the traditional design elements. Mirrored walls grace Arola, the hotel’s restaurant, which are etched with seemingly ancient symbols and characters. While a red, white, and black, spiral stair case elegantly reaches up the five floor hotel. If you are in, or passing though Paris W, be sure to reserve the super luxe WOW Suite, with a name like that, disappointment is nearly impossible.
Buzz has been circulating about the re-design and re-opening of La Maison Champs Elysees hotel for what seems like eons. The weight is over because knstrct is giving you a sneak peek into the Parisian establishment that has been cleverly revamped by Maison Martin Margiela. The hotel is composed of two historic buildings, one modern and one dating back to the second empire! MMM arrived on the scene and redesigned 17 guest suites, a restaurant, smoking room, bar, and reception area.
The interiors of the property meld stylistic elements of historical and contemporary design and juxtapose the two in a whimsical fashion. The lobby of the hotel highlights the refurbished old interior architectural pieces such as the molding, wall paneling, and railings, while amping up the wattage with colorful, futuristic furniture pieces.
The suites are separated by two concepts – day and night. Some suites disguise themselves in all black with unique lighting fixtures, creating a veiled, enigmatic atmosphere. Contrasting the dark suites are white rooms, bright as day, pure and harmonious.
The latest design to come out of the house of Philippe Stark is Parisian hotel Le Royal Monceau. The starcitect is famous for his play with proportion, bold punches of color, and his surreal creation of tiny moments within interiors that are curious enough to put your imagination into overdrive, as he did again in Le Royal. Amongst the suites and apartments, this Parisian hot spot includes a theater, kids club, spa, art gallery, shops, conference room, restaurants, and an exclusive lounge.
