Upgrade of an existing hotel into a boutique hotel located in Fontainebleau, 45 minutes away from the south of Paris. A complete restoration of the historical building was carried on, with some parts dating from the 17th century, maximizing original features like wooden beams to retain the historic charm of the place. The objective of the brief was to provide a contemporary and distinguished style to the hotel which hosts 20 rooms, 7 thematic suites as well as a Michelin Starred restaurant and a banquet hall.
The guest rooms and thematic suits have a restrained and timeless feel which enhance the idea of a romantic getaway. Wood has again a strong presence and together with a soft color palette manages to achieve a warm ambience. The choice of furniture is elegant, refined and contemporary. The bathrooms are also highly decorated and have a transparent and playful element. The restaurant highlights the restored, wooden elements, and lighting plays a key role in providing a luxurious setting for gourmet orientated guests and diners.
