A look at Marcel Wanders' Kameha Grand Zurich; the first Autograph hotel in Switzerland

Marriott International announced plans to expand its Autograph Collection portfolio in Europe with a new addition in Zurich, Switzerland. Opening next year, the hotel will represent the debut of the portfolio of independent hotels in the city.

When opened in spring 2015, the new 245-room Kameha Grand Zurich will represent the first Autograph Collection hotel to open in Switzerland. With architecture and interior design by Dutch designer Marcel Wanders, the hotel will be operated by Kameha Grand Glattpark Betriebsgeselleschaft. The hotel has 11 “themed” suites designed for the hotel by Wanders, including a “Poker Face” suite with roulette and poker tables; and a “Serenity” suite with lighting and select yoga and wellness accessories. 

Sebastian Knorr, the managing director of tecArchitecture, one of the leading American architecture firms, is also involved in the property’s design.
