Hamburg-based international hospitality design firm, JOI-Design, has renovated the public areas of the Steigenberger
Grandhotel Belvédère, one of Switzerland’s most celebrated grand hotels.

Originally built in 1875 in a Belle Époque style, the Steigenberger Grandhotel Belvédère is located in Davos, a municipality in the Swiss Alps renowned not only for its winter sports but also, during warmer months, as a holiday destination for outdoor activities.

The untamed natural environment that shapes local life was a major influence upon JOI-Design’s concept for the stylish refurbishment of the hotel’s public spaces.

Along with regional references, the design was also inspired by nostalgic notions of exclusive grand hotels. Fine details, such as the dark, fishbone-patterned veneer in the joinery of the front desk suggest the craftsmanship of past eras.

Redesigned spaces blend the traditional charm of an established grand dame with luxurious  amenities of a modern building, so guests can retreat to the luxurious comfort of the hotel to recount their adventures after a day skiing or hiking.
