Paris-Gare de l'Est Hotel redesigned by Axel Schoenert architectes

Axel Schoenert architectes was commissioned by Paris Inn Group to refurbish the Paris-Gare de l’Est Hotel. The four-star hotel will open in Paris this July.

Zsofia Varnagy and Axel Schoenert redesigned the entire hotel, from the architectural reconfiguration of the spaces to the interior design. Upon completion, the hotel’s 200 bedrooms will be increased to 206. Decorated in four different tones (turquoise, yellow, blue and violet), inspired by the colors of spring, each individual room will boast an en-suite bathroom.

The new lobby design will focus on optimizing spaces in order to create an open environment. The breakfast room, reserved for hotel guests, will seat 96 after renovation. The pale tones of the interior design will be subtly picked out by touches of color. Open to the public, the hotel bar will be designed especially by Zsofia Varnagy. Five conference rooms, with windows to the outside, will also be available.

Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience

Also designed for the hotel by Varnagy and Schoenert, the furniture line is made in harmony with the architectural concept. The chairs designed for the rooms include two different sizes and four different tones: turquoise, yellow, blue and violet. Recalling organic shapes such as rose petals or flowers, the design embodies movement and lightness while paying tribute to nature. The seats have rounded shapes and use refined materials. Meanwhile, two coffee tables created for the rooms also echo nature.
