MAISON HELER, AN OUT-OF-SCALE PHANTASMAGORIC ARCHITECTURE IN THE DYNAMIC CITY OF METZ
Thursday March 15th
Dominique Gros mayor of Metz, creator Philippe Starck and the Hilton Group presented Maison Heler Metz, a unique 14-storey hotel which will operate under Curio Collection by Hilton.
Curio Collection is a portfolio of nearly 50 remarkable, upper upscale hotels and resorts handpicked for their unique character and personality. Maison Heler Metz joins more than 20 Curio Collection by Hilton hotels, trading or under construction in Europe.
Maison Heler Metz will be the first and emblematic establishment of Maison Heler, a new elegant and intelligent hotel brand where guests are welcomed with expertise and humanity.
In the heart of Metz’s newly developed Quartier de l'Amphithéâtre, Maison Heler will also be the first hotel in Europe entirely created and developed from the ground up by the French creator. Starck has imagined this extraordinary construction in resonance with the Centre Pompidou Metz, like a habitable, surreal and poetic
work of art, becoming a strong symbol for the region.
“This project is an ‘out-of-scale’ phantasmagoric architecture. It's a game about uprooted
roots, a symbolic construction of Lorraine.” Ph.S
The monolithic and monochromatic building topped by an 18th century traditional Alsatian home will be a unique destination for guests and local residents to enjoy. The house will rise on 14 floors including a rooftop terrace and garden, peppered with local trees and offering breath-taking views of the entire city. The 119 guest-rooms and suites are comfortable and elegant, complemented by cozy and poetic restaurant and lounge bar situated in the house, and a gym dedicated to health and well-being as well as private meeting spaces.
