The Louvre hotel was built in 1855, facing the royal palace’s square and the Opera avenue, stands right next to Louvre Museum and the Comédie-Française.

Its’ arcades situated on the Rivoli street’s and the royal square’s facades form a typical example of Haussmanian architecture.

This singular location turns this hotel into a unique building where every facade opens onto un urban space with a strong identity.

The Hyatt Group undertook a heavy renovation program aiming to renovate all interior spaces, technical equipments, as well as facades and roofs.

Atelier du Torrent conducted architectural and design studies on the central courtyard in order to reconfigure the hotel’s public spaces.

The project focused on the restoration of the rediscovered art-deco glass roof in order to propose architectural transparencies based on movement and view as well as new functions in the transitional spaces.

The project was carried out in partnership with the New York based studio, George Wong Design, for the interior design.

The hotel is part of the Unbound Collection by Hyatt.

Atelier du Torrent received the prize for the best hotel in the category – upscale public space awarded by the magazine “hospitality design” in New York.
