Following an ambitious two-year renovation, the La Maison Hotel in the deeply historical German city of Saarlouis has unveiled its 12 new rooms and suites housed in a striking modern extension.
Conceived by German design firm CBAG.Studio, the timber-clad extension blends seamlessly with the lush parkland setting and provides a charming counterpart to the hotel’s stately central villa.
The warm, timeless interiors reflect a contemporary reinterpretation of classic aesthetics — an elegant marriage of past and present that perfectly embodies the ethos of the property.
Built in 1914, La Maison’s interiors are defined by high-quality materials and an eclectic mix of vintage and contemporary furnishings, while carefully curated artwork references the opulent glory days of Louis XIV.
In this new coterie of rooms, timber panelling and oiled oak floors create a warm, inviting atmosphere, augmented by the use of natural materials and an individualised colour palette of greens, blues and blush.
Clean lines and contemporary furnishings inform the restrained sophistication of the spaces, while elements such as rattan cabinetry, marble washbasins and Art Nouveau-inspired tiles are nods to the property’s early 20th-century roots. The oversized windows provide abundant natural daylight, which is supplemented by a seriously stylish lighting concept courtesy of Flos and Carl Hansen.
Danish design house GUBI joins the roll call of high-end designers with the inclusion of the brand’s Beetle lounge chairs and sofas.
