Hyatt Montreal Awarded Best Lobby
The Hyatt Regency Montréal has announced that the hospitality interior architecture and design firm Virserius Studio has been awarded Best Lobby/Public Area/Lounge Design by Luxe and Al International Hotel & Property Awards.
The project designer Therese Virserius, Director of the boutique New-York firm Therese Virserius design, opted for an artistic, sculptural space. Wide, curved stairs and a boomerang-shaped ramp lead up to modern check-in pods, which replace the traditional banker-style registration desk. Design elements include custom-made wallpaper, laser-cut flowers that cascade up the walls and ceiling a back-lit driftwood map, 16 columns wrapped in hand-made Italian leather and an all-white library with rich violet fabrics. An elevated wine room that overlooks the lounge will feature an Enomatic System, allowing guests to try 24 different high-end wines by the glass, and provide a flexible open space for up to 30 people. The lounge features a 20 feet by 5 feet media wall, which can be used to project corporate logos. Over the bar, six foot sculptural clouds encase LED lights that radiate saturated reds, soft yellows and deep purples throughout the day.
