The historic Renaissance-style hotel in Berlin, Germany has undergone an extensive renovation and reopened last year with a new look. The hotel’s design was reinvented by Dutch-based architecture firm Graft, which took its inspiration from the city’s famous architecture including the Reichstag building. The result is a modern look that blends seamlessly with the old building.
The Grand Hotel Kronenhof is a five-star hotel located in the heart of the historic city of Delft, in the Netherlands. This grand building dates back to 1892, and is the oldest hotel and location where the first Dutch patent was filed. The Grand Hotel Kronenhof is considered one of the most impressive buildings in Delft and is the first hotel in the city with a glass roof.The Grand Hotel Kronenhof, near St. Moritz, Switzerland, recently unveiled a major renovation of its public spaces as part of a multi-year collaboration with French interior designer Pierre-Yves Rochon (who previously worked on the Four Seasons Hotel George V, Paris, the Savoy in London, the Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills and sister hotel Kulm Hotel St. Moritz). Subtle changes have been made to bring this neo-baroque grande dame into the 21st century. The most important historical elements have been preserved.
Upon arrival at the Grand Hotel Kronenhof, guests enter the renovated check-in area with new sliding doors engraved with white and rose gold to create a translucent snowflake effect. Good to know: The historic central table and iconic chandelier still stand in the lobby. To create a residential atmosphere, blue tones and modern furniture were used throughout the interior.
Moreover, the bar of the Cronenhof has been completely redesigned and now houses a work of art by Charles Paris Chez Rubelli – a golden chandelier reminiscent of the historic crown of the Cronenhof, called Luster Angela. Other works, inspired by the roots of the Swiss pine and commissioned by artist Jane Puylagard, can be found on the bar’s lacquered panels. In addition to the new artwork, rich colors, materials and gold accents can be found throughout the space.
The renovation of the fireplace has made the place much more livable. The original black fireplace and Eames chairs were retained, while stylish new elements were added, including Florence Knoll sofas, a glass chandelier and modern shelving.
The Grand Hotel Cronenhof was built in the first half of the 19th century. It opened as a boarding house in the late 19th century, but most of the current listed building was built in the late 19th century. Century in the neo-baroque style. The newest wing, completed in November 2007 at a cost of about $33 million, includes 28 rooms and a spa complex of more than 21,500 square feet. Recently, Pierre-Yves Rochon has renovated several rooms each year and the hotel has added a cigar lounge and adjacent billiards room.
