Pullman transforms five Parisian properties

Pullman launched the "Pullman Paris Live," which will see the overhaul of five of its properties in France's capital. The five hotels to be transformed are the Pullman Paris Montparnasse, Bercy, Tour Eiffel, La Défense, and Charles de Gaulle Airport.

Several features in all five establishments will be reinvented in the next few months, including their interior design, inclusion of contemporary art, connectivity and decompartmentalized spaces. The aim is to create five addresses where customers will recognize Pullman's identity through a series of brand hallmarks and characteristics.

Eight architects and interior designers are responsible for Pullman's new identity in Paris, namely: Christophe Pillet, Didier Gomez, Marc Hertrich & Nicolas Adnet, JOI Design, Laurent Moreau, Naço and Didier Rey.

The "Pullman Paris Live" project highlights include: 30 months of refurbishment; renovation of 2,510 rooms; re-invention of over 279,861 square feet of living areas; and the re-training of staff.

Already, Pullman Paris La Défense and Pullman Paris Montparnasse, the first two of the five projects, were unveiled. Work on Pullman Paris Tour Eiffel started in January and is expected to be finished in April 2014. Pullman Paris Bercy will be unveiled in September; while Pullman Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport will be unveiled in December.
