Buyer: The Laurent Taieb Group presents one of its major development projects : the future four-star Tours DUO hotel, designed by Philippe Starck.
Within the Tour DUO 2, designed by Ateliers Jean Nouvel, the Laurent Taïeb Group, in association with Pascal Donat and under the MGallery brand, offers an innovative, accessible hotel concept anticipating the hotel industry of tomorrow. The hotel, whose name is yet to be revealed, takes up a large part of the building, ten floors from the 17th to the 27th.
“The Tours Duo offers a heavenly break, the feeling of sleeping so high that all of Paris is ours … that is the dream of this hotel. Enjoying such a view brings joy and intense happiness to those who share such an adventure, poetry of great intensity, dazzled by the sparks of the Eiffel Tower.” Laurent Taieb
Composed of 139 rooms and suites, a restaurant, a bar with terrace which offers an exceptional panoramic view of Paris, the establishment was designed by Philippe Starck, a lifelong friend of Laurent Taïeb with whom he has already worked on many projects. Starck imagined this place as an explosive and paradoxical mixture of extreme classical elegance and pure energy from the future.
“This hotel is a paradox, both a Montgolfier brothers air balloon and an International Space Station. Suspended over Paris, it is not on earth. Filled with energy, dreams, love, longing / desire, intelligence and laughter, it flies up there, where the weather is fine and where scarce oxygen stuns.” Ph.S
A warm and energetic meeting place for people and universes, the hotel naturally integrates ecological needs into its design by meeting the latest environmental certifications in force.
THPT Comment: Philippe Starck, the designer of note of outlandish hotels, is back in the game with this new hotel in Paris.
