The new CitizenM Gare de Lyon hotel in Paris by Concrete Architecture is designed keeping in mind the long-standing romance of the modern traveler with his emerging aesthetic sensibility and desire for customized experience! |
CitizenM Gare de Lyon is the third citizen hotel in Paris and is around the block from one of Paris’s major transportation hubs, Gare de Lyon train station. The hotel offers 338 rooms, topped with a Parisian-apartment-style CloudM skybar - a gateway to stunning views of the river Seine and the city.
Just like the logo becomes an epitome of brand identity, there is certain defining element, which is a part of the design language of all CitizenM hotels unifying it across all properties. It creates a recall value, adding distinct character, which makes it stand apart from the milieu.
The hotel is dotted with signature black citizenM cabinets filled with colourful and quirky accessories and objects from all over the world. As with all citizenM hotels, the walls are decorated with especially commissioned artworks including a bespoke mural by French street artist Mast Cora, a bespoke fresco created by local artist Romain Froquet and furniture by Vitra.
The double-height entrance at the ground level houses ‘Reflecting Holons’ – an installation by artists Jetske Visser and Michiel Martens. It's magic of light and movement depicts bubbles, which are continually shining, moving and dancing. From here, the elevators ascend to the second floor, where guests can self-check-in and enter the world of citizenM's famous living rooms, where they can work, rest, meet and play at will. Contextualizing the décor, the first living room is fitted with an oversized fireplace and a bespoke carpet designed to evoke the ticking clock of the Gare de Lyon station.
Public areas are designed with the aesthetic of ‘chambre en suite’, which is a series of living areas that are all sub-divided. Located in the heart of the living rooms is canteenM, a lively space to eat, drink and socialize. The space also includes an open-air patio with hanging lanterns dividing the bar from the meeting rooms, bringing light into the space.
SocietyM is citizenM's business club for all business nomads and those, who want to work differently. New generation guest rooms feature the characteristic huge bed, powerful rain shower and tablet mood pad that controls your entire room: the temperature, lighting moods, blinds, alarm and entertainment.
At citizenM, quality comes at an affordable price. The completeness of the hospitality experience is designed to stay with the individual forever, wanting him to return again and again!check out the visuals of this signature hotel on indiaartndesign.com
