Potsdamer Platz, Hotel Grand Hyatt – 3/17

This building, designed by Spanish architect José Rafael Moneo, is where the Berlin branch of the american luxury hotel chain takes place: the Hotel Grand Hyatt. Built between 1993 and 1996, the building has a reddish sandstone facade and the window s on the plain external walls are disposed after a regular grid. A great example of futuristic architecture of the 1990’s.

The rooms, designed by Swiss designer Hannes Wettstein, are furnished in minimalist style, with a light avant-garde touch and some intersting Japanese elements like the cherrywood furnitures.

We can find also some Bauhaus accessories, for example the black and white marble bathtubs or, maybe more evocative, the seven black and white prints hung in each room, taken from the Bauhaus archives.

The spaces, L-shaped, are very luminous and they are all decorated following the Fen Shui philosophy. In all parts of the hotel, which proposed 324 rooms, the actual interior design creates a warm and cozy atmosphere, with a fine contemporary art. On the roof, the SPA with large windows offers a panoramic view over the terrace with real grass and on the roofs of Berlin.
