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.
