Marriott Airport Hotel by Living Design of Sweden

Living Design of Sweden have been shortlisted for Lobby/Public Areas – Global Award in The International Hotel and Property Awards 2023.

The Geneva Marriott Airport Hotel, a creation of Living Design of Sweden, draws inspiration from the captivating story of Armand and Henri Dufaux, visionary engineers and founders of Motosacoche, Switzerland’s largest motorcycle manufacturer of its time. In a masterful display of artistry, patterns, and styling elements, the hotel pays tribute to Geneva’s rich industrial heritage, particularly its role in pioneering aviation.

Living Design of Sweden’s meticulous attention to detail is evident throughout the hotel’s 263 keys, featuring a diverse mix of rooms and suites, well-equipped meeting facilities, a 24-hour fitness centre, and a variety of enticing F&B outlets.

At the heart of the Geneva Marriott Airport Hotel lies the Greatroom, a seamless blend of open and semi-open spaces that unite the reception, lobby lounge, and bar. This exceptional area exudes boldness, sophistication, and comfort from the moment guests set foot through its doors.

Living Design of Sweden

Living Design of Sweden’s inspiration from the Dufaux brothers’ aviation legacy is apparent in the reception’s striking design, featuring a captivating combination of wooden strips, concrete-finish paint, and foggy mirrors that form an abstract representation of an aircraft propeller. The central bar, adorned with concrete-finish paint and a hanging brass feature for glass and bottle storage, stands as another impressive focal point within the Greatroom. This versatile space effortlessly transforms from a cosy breakfast and coffee service area to a relaxed, vibrant lounge, perfect for afternoon cocktails or evening socialising.

Drawing from the surrounding natural and urban landscapes, such as the majestic Alps and the Jura, the Greatroom’s sleek and simplistic design showcases a fresh colour scheme that exudes calm and harmony. Light grey and beige tones form the serene base, complemented by touches of royal blue, tan, and green hues. Black metal, brass, faux leather, engineered stone, and wood materials enrich the design, thoughtfully meeting sustainability criteria.
