Maison Heler designed by Philippe Starck | Building castles in the sky



The Maison Heler hotel project is part of the social, ecological and economic development of Metz, in a new neighborhood dedicated to culture, housing and business. Located on Metz’s former freight station, Maison Heler Metz is the most ambitious urban planning development launched in the region for a century. Philippe Starck designed this new hotel with an 18th century traditional Alsatian home on top of a, 14 floors, monolithic and monochromatic building for the Curio Collection by Hilton.

Maison Heler Metz from the Curio Collection by Hilton will be located at the heart of the newly developed Quartier de l’Amphithéâtre in Metz with in its immediate proximity the Centre Pompidou-Metz, the Muse shopping centre and the Congress Centre. Maison Heler will be the first hotel entirely created and developed from the ground up in Europe by the French creator Philippe Starck. He imagined this extraordinary construction in resonance with the Centre Pompidou Metz, like a habitable, surreal and poetic work of art, becoming a strong symbol for the region. “This project is an out-of-scale phantasmagoric architecture. It’s a game about uprooted roots, a symbolic construction of Lorraine”, explained Philippe Starck.

The monolithic and monochromatic building topped by an 18th century traditional Alsatian home will be a unique destination for guests and local residents to enjoy. The house will rise on 14 floors including a rooftop terrace and garden, peppered with local trees and offering breath-taking views of the entire city. The 119 guest-rooms and suites are comfortable and elegant, complemented by cozy and poetic restaurant and lounge bar situated in the house, and a gym dedicated to health and well-being as well as private meeting spaces.

Maison Heler Metz joins more than 20 Curio Collection by Hilton hotels, trading or under construction in Europe. Curio Collection by Hilton is a portfolio of nearly 50 remarkable, upper upscale hotels and resorts handpicked for their unique character and personality. If you check out the vision page of the Maison Heler website it’s stated that they have plans for Lisbon, Toulouse and La Haye! The press releases don’t state when the hotel will open.
