Carbone Interior Design Balances Art Deco and Modernist Influences at This Hotel in Zurich
Since 1935, the Neues Schloss Privat Hotel Zurich has charmed guests with its rational-yet-rounded façade, an expert blend of Art Deco and Modernism. Today, thanks to a rethink by the city’s Carbone Interior Design, the interiors live up to the building’s motto: “A place that brings together what usually doesn’t combine.”
A member of the Marriott Autograph Collection, the 57-key hotel mixes a jewel-tone palette of velvety textures with walls in natural plaster. Rooms contrast shadow—bathroom walls in deep purple, dark oak details—and natural light. Public areas and a meeting room take advantage of similar contradictions, finding unexpected balances of curvy furnishings and the clean lines of linear light fixtures. And the new restaurant, Castellan’s, ties it all together, serving Mediterranean cuisine among banquettes that lap the walls like waves, just steps from Lake Zurich itself.
