Project Assessment

Inside Hotel Marmont there are two restaurants: Cafè Marmont and restaurant HOME. HOME is a chain launched by the M3 Group, present in Meyrin and Etoy. It is not a simple restaurant, it is a real place to live, welcoming, domestic, in which to feel just like home. This atmosphere is born from the union between space and design articulated around a precise intention. We resumed the chain concept, declining and developing it to adapt it both to the style and design of the entire Hotel and to the context in which the hotel is located, namely the city center.

Image depicting the logistics

Logistics

For this project, the client had set an opening date to be respected. We looked for purchase products that could respect the deadlines and carefully followed and coordinated the production of all custom furniture. Two shipments were organized, as requested by the customer, to complete the installation in two weeks. This involved an accurate management of all the material to have it in the house before delivery.

CONCEPT

The M3 Group has a clear idea of launching a new concept of hospitality; imagining hotels with an original, unique, extravagant design, new worlds where you can live unique experiences. As for roms project, also for the public areas the client had his own precise vision of style and design to be researched. Consistency, stylistic harmony with the rooms, aesthetics, functionality and integration of the HOME concept within the realization were the fundamental points around which to rotate the entire project. We took care of the realization of all the custom furniture and of the supply of the freestanding elements such as chairs, tables, benches. To recall the rooms design and concept, essential lines were preferred and tubular structures were used just like for the “Meuble de Vie” and “chariot” of the rooms. We were able to perfectly integrate the HOME concepT, which represented for us a project in the project, with the rest of the public areas spaces. Our technicians, designers and architects worked together to give to each element the functional and aesthetic characteristics. Each piece of furniture, such as the bar counter in the Marmont restaurant and café, was embellished by a light play and the particular materials. The essential lines and colors of the furniture were combined with purchase elements with the most striking and bright colors. The result is a hotel inspired by the heART. 

Project challenge

Timelines

One of the main challenges in this project was to meet the customer’s opening dates. The rooms project had already been completed last year, so the hotel had to come into operation as soon as possible. Research  freestanding solutions that could meet the deadlines, required a lot of work as well as coordinating the production of custom-made elements that incorporate a myriad of different details and materials. In addition, a tight planning of two weeks was established to complete the installation, for which we had to manage logistics and shipments in order to be able to respect the client’s requests.

We elaborated a new concept for the breakfast area paying attention to customer’s needs. There was the desire both to maintain the style that distinguishes the entire Hotel and to make the spaces multifunctional and flexible by design “a new conviviality”.  We proposed different solutions and concepts with the aim to fully achieve the goal.

Image depicting a pencil and a square.

Detail drawings

To make the spaces more flexible and functional, so as to adapt for all guests needs, we drew different custom elements such as the high table.

CONCEPT

Our collaboration with Manotel Group has been going on for more than 15 years and we already taken care of the complete design and furnishings for rooms and public areas of the Hotel N’vy***S, collaborating with Patrick Ribes. This year we were commissioned to redesign the breakfast area and the “zone of ciel étoilé”. The purpose was to make these spaces suitable for a plurality of uses embracing the new trend in the hotel sector “design a new conviviality”. So, we realized environments that can be lived in different ways, creating spaces in which guests can work, have breakfast, do a business breakfast or relax. Each space is thus exploited to the fullest. To make this possible, no major changes were needed. In fact we elaborated a simple project that provided the insertion of different types of seats (standard, lounge, high) and tables adapts to different uses. The “zone du ciel étoilé” was made more alternative and emotional, a kind of waiting room where guests can relax. Of course, to maintain the original and unique style of the entiere Hotel, we played on the choice of colors and inserted articles of famous design brands.  

Project challenge

The Hotel’s distinctive style

Each space of this Hotel has a strong identity, that makes the project more complex and interesting at the same time. We conducted a strong research to identify the style with which to characterize these spaces, while respecting the atmosphere of the whole hotel.

Economic analysis

 This project had a fixed budget. For this reason, we proposed different options for each solution present in the architect’s project with the aim both to respect the budget established for each single element and functional and aesthetic requests. 

Image depicting a roller for painting

Complete fit out and installation

We made this environment functional by assigning to each space a precise use destination, optimizing the whole thing to the maximum. During the installation phase we dealt with all the technical problems that occurred. 

CONCEPT

The collaboration with M3 Group, and in this case with M3 Restaurant, has been going on for a lot of years. The mutual trust, the success of projects realized, and the fact that pâtisserie Sofia is located in the same lot of Hotel Prince (another project realized by us for the Group), led M3 to entrust us with this project. The concept for Patisserie Sofia is very clear: the style and colors must be connected to the female name choice for the franchise, to the brand and to products packaging. For these reasons, the spaces are characterized by soft shades of pink, pistachio, baby blue, and lilac, revived by a neat lighting that highlights the products on offer. The brand Sofia is a young and new brand and the Group plans to open others Sofia soon. Considering all this, we helped to strengthen the brand identity by studying and realizing solutions that can be replicated in all Sofia. The marble shelves of the tables, the refrigeres showcases, the colors desired by the architect perfectly replicated on the furniture and the custom elements are the perfect examples of this. To realize all elements of the Sofia project we must respect not only the brand’s request but also those of Chef D.Costa. In fact the Chef had specific requests for the project materials. He wanted materials and finishes functional, suitable for the intended use but also able to show and enhance his creations. We identified the solutions that could satisfy all points. We managed all project phases; from design to realization, creating a distinctive place where everything is a communication and differentiation lever, realized custom made for M3 Group.  

The architects: M3 Restaurants

The Group reinvents or creates new establishments in strategic places of the city with strong development potential. Friendly, unexpected, gourmet and responsible, their restaurants contribute, day and night, to the dynamism of life in Geneva and its inhabitants.

Project challenge

The project

This time the challenge is the project itself, or rather the type of intervention with a more specific destination. In fact, we’ve never realized a bakery project before. So it was a new field for us also for the type of products and articles inserted in the project such as the bar counter that is not really a bar counter but it looks like a boulangerie. For this reason, we adapted our experience and competencies on Hotel’s restaurant/bar especially in terms of choice of the most suitable materials and the design and supply of custom furniture with the aime to have success also in this project.

Economic Analysis

Being a project, by its nature, of reduced durability than that of a hotel project, the customer’s budget was limited. For this reason, we have carried out a careful analysis to respect the established economic constraints and to identify alternative solutions if the elements included in the project didn’t fit into the budget, optimizing and satisfying requests and costs.  

Image depicting a light bulb

Engineering

Sketchiz is a real place of fun at 360 degrees. It’s made up not only of five themed karaoke rooms inspired by the Japanese model but also about ten arcade and traditional games. For the latter we had to conduct a thorough study to integrate them into appropriate technical solutions. It was a real challenge for us to do that because it’s a thing far from our world and from what we usually do. In addition, this project is highly scenographic and we had to engineer to recreate the effects required by the customer and the architect such as the reflective ceilings, the false window of the chalet room, wallpaper reproducing a library and more generally the concept of “speakeasy” which links everything.

Image depicting a carriage

Purchasing

This project is characterized by the multitude and variety of purchase and custom items. After careful research, we turned to our network of suppliers, artisans, and to major Italian and international brands to find and realize all the elements included in the project.  

CONCEPT

For this project we managed all the phases, from design to installation. The idea of client and architect was clear: recreate a place of fun composed by different and characteristic worlds. We have elaborated a specific concept for each karaoke room with the aim to recreate the five worlds and the five “moods” inspired by Tokyo, pop art, cambaret, chalet and disco atmosphere. 

Each room has been treated as a single project; every solution was studied in detail and we have researched the items, finishes, materials, custom elements more appropriate to make the guest feel completely immersed and part of that specific world.

Everything had to be characterized by a touch of spectacle, for this reason we have elaborated different solutions capable of making every space scenographic.  

The readable LEDs present in every room, the reflective ceilings of disco’s room, the wallpaper that recreates a fake library in the lounge bar zone, the game of contrasts, the purple color chosen for the stairs are perfect examples of the above.

Games, such as darts, have also been included in this project. We related with the suppliers of these games to identify technical solutions in which to integrate them. 

The final result is an unexpected place, unique that represents for guests a sort of escape from the daily routine, a way to unplug. 

Project challenge

Technical solutions

As already mentioned, we had to find technical solutions to recreate these particular settings, the scenic effect and the desidered impact on the guest, always respecting the budget.  

Complexity

Complexity both on management and research terms. In fact, we can define this project as a series of projects within a single project, in which the technical and aesthetic choices could not be replicated, in which for each environment there was a different and specific research and management. It’s been like managing 5 different yards. In addition, since the project consists of many elements, the management of purchases has also been complicated.

Details drawings

This project is characterized by the variety of furniture and materials used because there isn’t any furniture like the other. That’s why we had to make detailed drawings for the production and realization of each individual element. Particular attention should be given to the Oste table, a table almost six meters long, made entirely of oak, for which we have designed every single detail and put in place a careful research to identify the wooden boards to make it. 

Image depicting a quality process

Production and quality control

The variety, singularity and uniqueness of all the elements have made mass production and the use of machinery impossible. All the materials used, such as walnuts, oaks, have been treated with natural processes.  

Image depicting a roller for painting

Complete fit out and installation

In this project, there was a perfect fusion and harmony between the design phase, the choice of samples, the realization until the installation. This allowed us to perfectly recreate the desired style.

CONCEPT

The “Domaine du Mas de Pierre” is a luxurious and picturesque five-star Resort and Relais, with Provencal charm and appeal located in the Provencal countryside. Familiar names such as the architect Philippe Caron, interior designer Patrick Ribes and landscape architect Bruno Ricci, have over the years redesigned this historic place. We have taken care of the restructuring or better the restoration of public areas, including carpentry works. It was a real restoration in style, what in French is called “à l’identique”. 

Each element has been studied in detail to reflect the initial project, the Provencal atmosphere and the style of the ’50s that characterize the entire structure. The furniture present has been disassembled and subsequently restored and redesigned inserting new elements but maintaining the initial style, while others have been realized ad hoc following style, finishes, details of those pre-existing. We have carried out a careful analysis to choose natural materials such as solid wood (walnut, oak, etc.), more suitable to preserve the authenticity that characterizes the whole. About sixteen different elements have been restored/made by us. Even the details of the latter are really extraordinary, for example the knobs of some furniture look like real antique gold  brooches, used at the time to charm and embellish hats matching women’s and men’s clothing, In some counters, instead, silver decorations have been inserted. In the restaurant area we realized a door completely painted.

The architect: Patrick Ribes

We have collaborated with the Paris studio in perfect harmony. Ribes enjoys an international reputation in the projecting of luxury design contract spaces. He is responsible for important projects for Givenchy, Dior, Guerlain. 

Project challenge

Restoration in style

The main challenge is linked to the nature of the project itself: the restoration of a hotel conceived as an artwork, super luxurious. A restoration in style then, what we can define “à l’identique”. To do this, we have placed extreme attention and mastery both at joinery and treatments level to which all existing and restored furniture have been subjected.

CONCEPT

The renovation of the Alhambar bar/restaurant involved several constraints. Being a building of historical value, some elements could not be removed, replaced or even touched. In terms of style, the classic style of the theatre in which it is located had to be taken into account and combined with the client’s more modern ideas. In addition, the Alhambar is a modern meeting place for cocktails and aperitifs, a classic restaurant for a lunch break, a family place for Sunday brunch, a nightclub at weekends and a location for private events. So, the choice of seating and tables reflected the functional flexibility of the venue. The fixed furniture, bar and bench, fit the elliptical shape of the room. The construction of the curved bench was certainly one of the main difficulties in production. Equally special was the construction of the back counter, where shelves with a golden metal structure have a mirror covering in the background. The cladding of the bar counter is the result of several samples in terms of shape, size and colour.

Project challenge

Historical theatre in the heart of Geneva

With regard to the construction site and logistics, the main difficulty was to deliver within the old town in an area quite difficult to reach. Furthermore, as for the installation we had to respect some existing elements that characterize the building in terms of its historical value.

Economic Analysis

In this step we performed the economic analysis for all finishes and furniture and with the aim to understand the most appropriate choice in terms of budget, we evaluated whether it was better to renovate the building with a normative adjustment or it was more appropriate to demolish and and remake it thus keeping the facade facing the street.

CONCEPT

In 2015 the Client decided to renovate the Hotel. In order to achieve a better result, we suggested demolishing the old building and rebuild, preserving only the facade on one of the main streets of Nyon. Step through the door to find yourself immersed in an intimate atmosphere of cosy cocooning dominated by soothing shades of sand, black, taupe and copper. The 21 rooms are available in three categories: Standard, Superior and Superior Lake View. Each of the rooms in this unique boutique hotel in Nyon has been designed to offer its guests a special moment of comfort and privacy. Nestled on the top floor of the Hotel are a Junior Suite and the Castle Suite, which offer discretion, refinement and elegance. Both benefit from a lounge area and breath-taking views on the magnificent surroundings, with views of Nyon Castle, Lake Geneva and Mont Blanc. The restaurant’s position within the glass veranda at the heart of the Ambassador Boutique Hotel offers diners a bright and refined setting. Its private terrace benefits from a soothing atmosphere, far from the noise and bustle of the city.

Design manager: Irene Izzo

The uniqueness of this Boutique Hotel fascinated me at first sight. The large glass windows immersed into the landscape have allowed me to realize a design aimed at visual continuity between indoor and outdoor. The choice of soft but decisive chromaticism and essential but elegant furniture makes the atmosphere refined and cozy.

Project challenge

Demolition and reconstruction

The challenges in this project were different, in fact, we had to demolish and rebuild the building keeping the facade and we had also to pay attention to the fact that the building is actually located in an urban contest with two adjacent buildings. From a technical point of view, there were a lot of problems due to the age of the building.

Engineering

A constant commitment to the development of furniture executives and cladding details, together with a continuous search for finishes consistent with the Taiwanese architect’s concept, have been the keys to a success that is visible to all Hotel guests years later.

Purchasing

The design of the CCD studio in Taiwan often involved materials and products that were only commercially available in the geographic area where the architectural firm was located and did not take into account the client’s budget for the Crowne Plaza Geneva project. By using our network of suppliers and through relentless research by our team of designers supported by the purchasing department, we could meet all the architect’s requirements while obviously sticking to the client’s budget.

CONCEPT

The building, in addition to being completely renovated both from an aesthetic and plant engineering point of view, has been raised by two floors made of glass and steel, in full contrast with the architectural style of the six existing floors. In a second phase and in collaboration with the Taiwanese architect Celia Chu, we created the public areas of the ground floor, the rooms, suites, lounge and fitness areas on the seventh and eighth floor. The previously dull atmosphere was overhauled with a picturesque garden view in the public space. By transforming the natural elements and colours into a modern design language, the Hotel can welcome its guests with the most comfortable hospitality. The restaurant “Seventy5” and bar integrates local design and cultural elements, so that guests will feel like they are in a traditional kitchen or eatery, while also enjoying fashionable and youthful vibes. The bar offers leisurely and relaxing moments to everyone, with hints of lavender in its colour scheme.

The architect: Celia Chu

Celia Chu is the principal figure and visionary in her design firm-Celia Chu Design. Inspired by her passion for art and design, Celia combines practical functionality and her unique expression in design sensibilities to form a holistic approach to all her projects. Celia’s work has appeared numerous times in many international design publications such as Shotenkenchiku, Interior, GQ Taiwan and Modern Decoration.

Project challenge

A Hotel in Geneva, passing through Taiwan

The project of Crowne Plaza geneva suites and public areas will probably always be remembered for its collaboration with a Taiwanese architecture firm, where a simple exchange of views was complicated by a different time zone. We set up a very tight revision workflow so that every element was approved by the Art Director of this project, without compromising the timing of procurement and production of the goods.

The advantage that we have perceived by collaborating with Gitaly was that the company was responsive to any needs and ablle to adapt their work in such a way that the Hotel could remain open during the entire cunstruction period.

PROJECT ASSESSMENT-BUDGET

The same client of Geneva commissioned us to develop the project for the public areas of the Crowne Plaza in Zurich, entrusting us with an important task that took us beyond the borders of the French-speaking cantons where we have already consolidated many years of experience. This dual partnership with the Crowne Plaza chain of Hotels is the result of the relationship of trust that has been established over time with the client, to whom we have been able to offer the design, logistical and organizational support required, in full respect of established deadlines and budgets.

Project-assessment- Gitaly contract

PROJECT ASSESSMENT-CONCEPT

At the design level we started from the initial images elaborated by Guglielmo Ori elaborated and we have refined the choices of trims, furniture, lighting and decorations. Although the area of the restaurant had been completely approved by client and developed in detail, during the work, the client decided to entrust the restaurant  to the well-known Theo Randall franchising, and for this we have adapted some of our choices to the franchising concept.

CONCEPT

For this Hotel we decided to involve as art director architect Guglielmo Ori, in order to give an elegant, but contemporary style to the Hotel. Just a stone’s throw from the lively Langstrasse district and not far from the city centre, the Crowne Plaza Zurich has a sparkling style, characterized by a perfectly harmonious stylistic dialogue between the public areas and the rest of the Hotel. In the breakfast area the light tones of calacatta marble combined with pastel colours accompany the customer in a relaxing chromatic-sensory experience. In stark contrast, the style of the restaurant and bar, visible from the street through very fine copper-coloured metal mesh, is characterized by black marble cladding enlivened by furnishing elements with metal finishes ranging from silver to gold, copper and chairs in elegant, yet decisive tones. In the hall the colours are bright and guests are welcomed by soft tones, enlivened by more intense touches of colour in the seats that create a lively and modern ambience. A perfect combination of functionality and style. In this project we took care of all the aspects and phases of the renovation; in addition to the restyling with which we wanted to impress the client by creating custom elements designed by Architect Guglielmo Ori, we also took care of the plant engineering and coordination of the site in all the executive steps.

The architect: Guglielmo Ori

Trained at the Faculty of Architecture of the University of Bologna, Guglielmo Ori boasts collaborations with leading architects of international renown, including Jan Kleihues of Berlin and Peter Eisenman, with a studio in New York. Also, he started a collaboration on cultural and theoretical activities as well as architectural international built projects and competitions.

Project challenge

Discovering Zurich

The challenge for Crowne Plaza Zurich project has been surely at the logistic and yard level. In fact, we have worked in Zurich where we don’t have the same consolidated experience that we have in French cantons of Geneva. At construction site level it has been necessary to organize the jobs in steps with a precise compartmentalisation of these, because the Hotel was open and also usually frequented by large groups of organized trips. In this project we also directed the works and coordinated the part of the plant engineering in order to proceed within a short time. In fact, at the plant engineering/legislative level, there were a lot of unexpected and discoveries during the demolition phase. Thanks to our flexibility, we have solved the problems and completed the works in the according timing.

We believe that furniture plays a vital role in client Hotel experience and in hotel management. Based on the client’s requirement in terms of design, image, and budget we supplied furniture fully in line with client specifications and the architect’s requests. Our professional furniture solutions must be practical, flexible and stylish in equal parts.

Image depicting a chair

Prototyping

The exclusive bed solutions is a clear example of that. Architect idea was a suspended bed. To meet the Hotel’s needs in terms of management and the constraints of construction, we create a bed fully surrounded by mirrors reflecting all surfaces making it look suspended. This idea was designed and built, afterwards improved in details and the final touch was the addition of the lighting.

CONCEPT

For the Hotel N’vy we worked on the design of the rooms and public areas in collaboration with the well-known architect Patrick Ribes. In synergy with him and his studio we have designed rooms full of vibrant energy in which modern details, street style, futuristic works of art and a wide palette of colors coexist. Fusion style design furniture completes the work by creating very glamorous boho-chic settings. Great attention has been paid to the search for cutting-edge technological solutions: chromotherapy, RGB lighting, LED TV, interactive touch-screen tables and the latest generation wellness centre. This oasis full of light and technology has a composite urban atmosphere that invites you to relax. In the rooms we have proposed a combination of styles for the furniture, fresh colors and modular rooms to give the user the best possible experience. We also worked on the entrance of the public areas, bar, restaurant, café and other service areas. Each space has a strong identity, that makes the project more complex and interesting at the same time. The interior design concept accentuates the promotion of art in all areas of the Hotel thanks to contemporary works and permanent exhibitions by international artists.

The architect: Patrick Ribes

We have collaborated with the Paris studio in perfect harmony. Ribes enjoys an international reputation in the projecting of luxury design contract spaces. He is responsible for important projects for Givenchy, Dior, Guerlain.

The translation of an art to be experienced, mixed with relaxation, nonconformity, lightness and elegance.

Project challenge

Unforeseen during the yard

At yard level, the most difficult challenge for this project was discovering the presence of asbestos in the building. The removal of asbestos requires that determined zones and exits can be occupied only by specialized company, for this reason, during the demolition we have reviewed all yard operations in order to respect the already short timing of delivery.

Smart bed solution

All client’s ideas were transformed in details, decorations, materials, furnishings by the technical/design office. All this in full compliance with the client’s budget and considering our experience in the Hotel operations. For example, we had the idea to apply a strip with the mirror under the sommier of the bed to make the effect of a floating bed combining the architect’s idea concerning the type of bed and the practicality that the Hotel requires in the daily management operations.

Production and quality control

According to our Partner in this challenge we agreed to set up a strict monitoring procedure on each supplier before approving and sending the material to the building site. Our technicians checked every detail of each piece of furniture to avoid further problems once all materials would be on site. 

CONCEPT

The complex develops on a surface of 189 hectares and is composed of several structures: a five stars hotel, 50 luxury independent villas, a conference centre, a Club House. Everything develops in the middle of an 18 holes golf course. The Hotel, five star category, presents a plan with four wings, with a central part and develops on 10 levels. In the central part on the basement there is a discotheque accessible from the lobby through lift and a staircase; on the ground floor a lobby reception of 2700 square metres. On the four wings from the 2nd to the 5th floor, there are different typologies of bedrooms: 399 standard rooms, 46 junior suites, 4 senior suites and a royal suite. On one side of the ground floor is the wellness centre on a surface of 1650 m2; on the opposite side is the shopping area; on the sixth floor you can find an Italian restaurant with its kitchen and terrace. On another wing of the Hotel there is a three meal restaurant, on the first floor we find a lounge bar and a steakhouse restaurant. The Conference centre, directly connected to the Hotel through wing on the ground floor, is composed of several multifunction rooms, distributed on two levels. The principal structure is a semicircular dome which raises on two levels and contains the conference room with 1205 seats, while the basement for meeting rooms. In the side part (the rectangular one), there is a ballroom which may contain 840 seats on the ground floor and on the basement kitchen and facilities. The independent 50 villas are arranged on the whole area of the residential complex, close to the river landscape and surrounded by the golf course. Each villa has two floors and an outbuilding. The Club House is next to the golf course and it consists of a restaurant, a reception lobby, a caddy master room, a shop, changing rooms and on the first floor, there is a vip area with a terrace.

Design Manager: Irene Izzo

Its realization has been very hard but equally stimulating both from the stylistic and logistical point of view, being a project of enormous proportions. Its complexity has required a detailed study of every architectural element to harmoniously insert the structure in the surrounding natural landscape.

Project challenge

A city in the middle of the African forest

One of the major challenges of this project was the logistics. All merchandise and materials were sent in containers by maritime transport, so at each time we needed to pay attention to the planning and to organise at best all our network of suppliers. As previously described the building site was in the middle of the jungle we could not afford lack of material.
