Hamburg-based interior design firm JOI-Design recently wrapped a soft refurbishment of Le Méridien Stuttgart's Diplomatic and Presidential Suites. The practice drew inspiration for the interior design from the the city’s vibrant, artistic heritage as well as the panoramic views of the 10th century and Baroque castles in Schlossgarten Park, the 650-year-old palace garden adjacent to the hotel.
The Diplomatic Suite has 1,720 square feet of space with traditional moldings and a working granite fireplace. In the living toom, oversized mirrors capture the light and views of the surrounding gardens, while wall treatments enhance the impact. Tones of taupe and grey along with muted purple accents allow the zip of orange in the artwork to concentrate the room's focus toward the lounge area. Double doors lead to a dining room and adjoining light-filled conservatory overlooking the gardens below.
The 2,700-square-foot Presidential Suite, noted as the largest in the city, has been re-imagined by JOI-Design to have a timeless elegance with a sophisticated gold color palette. The original working fireplace creates a natural gathering space, while adjacent to the living room is a round dining table hewn from honey-tinged hardwoods and an elevated winter garden and a solarium.
