HBA refurbishes Atlantis by Giardino in Zurich

Atlantis by Giardino opened following a renovation overseen by London-based HBA.

Built between 1968 and 1970, Atlantis by Giardino is recognized as an example of post-war Modernist architecture. Inge Moore, creative director of the London-based design firm The Gallery HBA, revived two classical armchairs, which are placed opposite the reception desk. New furnishings were designed by HBA and manufactured by Molteni in Italy.

A Y-shaped building with three wings, the hotel has a transparent ground floor, which is topped by three stories and a hovering attic. Dark parquet flooring, padded walls and surfaces of stone in the bathrooms adorn the 95 rooms and suites. The hotel also has two restaurants, an outdoor pool and a spa.

The interior design plays with the architecture of the building, which is located at the bottom of the Üetliberg. Like a main artery, the spiral staircase connects the ground floor with the three stories above. Wood and marble are used throughout the space.
