MONTREAL — The Hyatt Regency Montréal announced in mid-July that the hospitality interior architecture and design firm Virserius Studio received an award by Luxe and Al International Hotel & Property Awards, a hospitality interior architecture and design firm based in the UK, for the lobby and lounge renovation of the Hyatt Regency Montreal.
Project designer Therese Virserius, director of the boutique New York firm Therese Virserius design, opted for a sculptural space. Wide, curved stairs and a boomerang-shaped ramp lead up to modern check-in pods, which replace the traditional banker-style registration desk. Design elements include custom-made wallpaper, 16 columns wrapped in hand-made Italian leather and an all-white library with violet fabrics.
An elevated wine room that overlooks the lounge will feature an Enomatic System allowing guests to try 24 wines by the glass and provide a flexible open space for up to 30 people. The lounge features a 20 ft by 5 ft media wall, which can be used to project corporate logos. Over the bar, 6 ft sculptural clouds encase LED lights that radiate saturated reds, soft yellows and deep purples throughout the day.
