Manuelle Gautrand Architects shared their Enzo Hotel in Paris with us. The hotel’s strong triangular form holds different programmatic elements to engage its lively streetscape. The colorful façade took inspiration from the landscape’s natural palette. The colors add a crisp aesthetic to the building as the different panels and their varying tints add a sleek texture to the form. According to the architects, “Their fragmented bands give a kinetic effect to overall volume – one can see the movement of the cars there, a certain impression of speed.”

More images and more about the hotel after the break.

The building’s massing is elegantly shaved to conform to the urban constraints of the surrounding areas. The tapering and narrow ground floor plate of the hotel generated different ideas in plan for the building’s organization.

The volume offer “different perceptions” depending upon the angle viewed, resulting in a continually changing project with a “overall dynamic comprehensive view.”
