Students Compete to Redesign the Historic Hotel du Louvre

Exciting news from Paris!

Our colleagues at the Hotel du Louvre - Paris, a Hyatt Hotel have teamed up with École Camondo - the Parisian product design and interior architecture school – to restore the iconic hotel back to its original grandeur. The theme chosen for the school’s fourth year student projects was hotels, which gave Hyatt with a rare opportunity to collaborate with 53 final year students on a unique design project.

Over the course of twelve weeks, the students came up with their concepts and produced detailed plans for a refurbishment of numerous areas, including the hotel’s lobby, restaurant and bathrooms. This was no straightforward task! The students had to develop fresh ideas to create a timeless, refined and contemporary atmosphere for the hotel, while also highlighting the historical beauty of the structure and respecting its iconic Parisian features. Every last detail was considered from room layout to furnishings to materials to define the look and feel.
