Didier Gomez crafts sixth Renaissance property in Paris

Renaissance Republique

Renaissance Hotels debuted its sixth Parisian property, located in the La Republique neighborhood. Said to be inspired by the bohemian spirit of the Republique district, Renaissance Republique was crafted by interior designer Didier Gomez.

The hotel has a high-low design approach that incorporates high-end finishes with raw, gritty and concrete surfaces. Contemporary and locally inspired elements were infused into the various spaces of the hotel.

Gomez’s design includes cross-cultural elements, including a sculpture from Africa in the lobby, furnishings from Asia in the guestrooms and local Parisian street art throughout. Gomez also brought the outside in with tree motifs in the guestrooms, cloud shaped ceiling lights and a vegetation wall in the hotel’s outdoor terrace.

Mirroring the designs of local artist workshops, the 121 guestrooms use earthen tones to complement both modern light fixtures and antique furniture. Included among the six guestroom categories is the penthouse suite, which has a private terrace with a Jacuzzi, an outdoor cinema and views of Montemarte’s Sacré-Cœur basilica and northern Paris.

The property also has the onsite Origin restaurant, the Martin bar and Spa O.
