The renowned E2A architects' office designed the Placid Hotel Zurich as a place for meetings in the Altstetten district. Built as if cast from one mould, it is inspired by the surrounding urban architecture. Natural materials and fluid transitions inside form the timeless design - our vision of modern cohabitation.
The Placid Hotel Design & Lifestyle Zurich: perfect for business and city travellers. 115 rooms, lofts and suites, personal service, urban design. 5 conference rooms and a functional infrastructure are available for business and meetings. Finally, the Buckhuser restaurant: open to all. Here, in the heart of Altstetten, is where it all comes together.
Fair-faced concrete, clay plaster and glass portrays an impression of a sleek, timeless design. High quality, purity, naturalness, clarity, durability and timelessness characterize our materials. This concerns not only the construction and the construction materials, but also the facilities and materialization. We show the selected materials, we do not need to hide them. There is, for example, a smooth transition from the bathroom to the bedroom.
The concept of materialization runs through the whole building – from the hotel, to the nursery, the restaurant, the conference rooms and the offices runs like a red thread.
Fair-faced concrete, clay plaster, cement mosaic tiles, wall covered in oiled oak, natural wood and glass meet designer pieces by Jürg Bally, Werner Max Moser, Knoll international, Bernard Albin Gras and many other masters of furniture design.
