Entry Description

For the re-design of the reception lobby area in this lake front hotel, the design team was given the brief to create a welcoming entrance and attractive lounge areas. Adhering to Le Méridien’s ‘HUB’ concept for the public areas, the designers’ created a series of interconnected spaces conducive to socialising for guests and locals alike, with designated areas conceived as comfortable living room and work spaces. A central feature of the lobby lounge is the new ‘Latitude’ bar, an all-day coffee and snack servery that transitions to wine and aperitifs in the evening.Drawing on the maritime history of the region, inspiration was taken from the myriad waterways, canals and rivers that contribute to the nearby city’s status as a significant trading port. Alluding to this, the redesign was proposed as a place that connects travelers from the world over with city residents, and is an ideal place to meet.
