Swiss Stylt hotel wins UNESCO architecture award
Hotel Spedition in Switzerland, designed by Stylt Trampoli, has won UNESCO’s architecture prize Prix Versailles for its interiors. The award, which is a global architecture prize for stores, hotels and restaurants, is arranged by UNESCO (the United Nations special organ for education, science and culture).
“This award confirms that the most powerful hospitality experiences result from working with values beyond design in itself,” says Erik Nissen Johansen, founder and creative leader at Stylt Trampoli. “We always start from the place, the building, the social and historical context, and that leads to meaningful concepts that remain relevant for a long time - and opportunities to preserve heritage values.”
The awards will be presented at a gala at UNESCO’s head quarters in Paris on 12 May.
