The second breath of Eden at the Lake
In the 110 years that it has stood on the shores of Lake Zurich, Eden au Lac has not lacked in presence, but undoubtedly modernity. Its benefactors? Michel Reybier, at the origin of exceptional places labeled La Réserve in Paris, Ramatuelle or Geneva. And Philippe Starck, the best known designer and pioneer of accessible design. The result, a new 5-star hotel in a modern and lively city, La Réserve Eden at Lake Zurich, still standing by the lake but entirely redesigned in an imaginary yacht club, says its creators: exclusivity, refinement and ambience. ‘a yacht club … without a yacht club!
Minimal but not minimalist
How to propel a hotel into a new era? Going in search of his soul. Exit plaster, tapestries and wallpapers, Philippe Starck has eliminated the superfluous to keep the essentials. The facade with balconies carved under their striped blinds has not changed, but the structural elements hidden under decades of modifications have found their freedom. And the result is perfectly timeless modernity, combining marble bases and brick walls, concrete details and solid wood floors, raw materials and historic details in a palette of wood tones… all against a backdrop of sea views. and decorative winks evoking the nautical world, imaginary yacht club obliges. A word from Starck? “The Eden Reserve at Lake Zurich is like dancing rock’n roll with the Queen of England. Everything is classic but nothing is . ”
