Maison Heler in the city of Metz, capital of France’s Lorraine region in the Northeast will be the first hotel entirely created and developed from the ground up by French star designer Philippe Starck. The monolithic and monochromatic 14-story building will be topped by an 18th century traditional Alsatian home surrounded by a rooftop terrace and garden, peppered with local trees and offering breath-taking views over the entire city.
The house will also hold a cozy and poetic restaurant and lounge bar. The 119 guest rooms and suites are comfortable and elegant, complemented by modern amenities including a fitness center as well as private meeting spaces.
The hotel is part of the social, ecological and economic development of Metz, in a new neighborhood dedicated to culture, housing and business. Located on Metz’s former freight station, Maison Heler Metz is the most ambitious urban planning development launched in the region for a century. The area is situated with immediate proximity to the Centre Pompidou-Metz, the Muse shopping centre and the Congress Centre, which will all diversify and strengthen the attractiveness of this landmark hotel.
Upon completion (foreseen 2020) the hotel will join Hilton’s upscale Curio Collection.
