Elegant haven of peace & urban meeting place – Hotels Hyatt, The Circle@Zurich Airport

In the midst of the hustle and bustle of the newly built “The Circle”, the urban hub of Zurich Airport, the Hyatt Group has opened two hotels with diametrically opposed styles: in the elegant Hyatt Regency, business and private travellers will find peace and quiet amid the hubbub, while the Hyatt Place – with its modern, urban décor – fosters discovery and exchange in a relaxed atmosphere.

The lighting concept for both hotels was developed in close cooperation with the architectural firm, Kalfopoulos, enabling the creation of a harmonious overall look. Each area of the hotels has its own tailor-made luminaire, emphasising the desired designs and ensuring optimum lighting.

At the Hyatt Regency, particular attention is paid to quality materials and elegance: from the stairwell to the lobby and the rooms, guests are swathed in the glittering glamour of finely-cut glass elements in the lighting fixtures.

In Hyatt Place, the lighting accentuates the relaxed and welcoming atmosphere with a series of modern and varied luminaires. Exclusive light medallions symbolising all of Switzerland’s coats of arms add an artistic touch to the corridor walls.
