Intercontinental Düsseldorf

Düsseldorf

The brief

The Intercontinental Dusseldorf is probably the best hotel in the city and our brief was to radically transform its lobby into an elegant day-to-night social hub as well as to create a new restaurant that would attract not just the hotel guests but a sophisticated Dusseldorf audience. The 142sqm lobby lounge situated at the heart of a vast hotel atrium needed to be connected to a new 469sqm restaurant, Kö59, offering 140 covers and being launched by German celebrity chef Björn Freitag.

Our approach

The transformation of the lounge features elegant and comfortable seating, warm timber parquet flooring making it feel residential, warm and intimate. The transition between the lobby and the restaurant introduces a transparent architectural façade, allowing easy integration between spaces whilst still maintaining their own individual identity. The restaurant Kö59 is now an exciting and dynamic environment combining from an open kitchen to a large central feature cocktail and dining bar and a more intimate wine tasting enoteca.
