Inside the restaurant of this Strasbourg hotel one can find the impressive spiral wooden strips. The building is a former equestrian academy by Paris studio Jouin Manku.
In the past the property has been used as a Royal Stud but now it functions as a 55-room Les Haras de Strasbourg hotel in the heart of the French town. The designers of the project pointed out that they have made the hotel in order to display authenticity and highest standards for modernity. The luxurious interior of the hotel is inspired by the equestrian world, restrained and subtle. Some very expensive materials can be found inside the house. Oak elements in the interior surround the staircase that makes a beautful spacious curve leading to the second level of the property. The staircase is located between a circular beverages bar and an open plan kitchen design at the ground level. The homeowners enjou a casual informal seating furnitue and a few dining tables. A wine rack that stands on the back wall is crossed by the spiral created with timber elements. One the second level, there are the guests rooms. The homeowner’s friends are able to join a memorable dinner party beneath the original wooden roof. For larger parties, the house knows what it can offer – white extended long tables as well as private booths and large curved seats are the successful ingredients for a rocking party.
The rough and raw look has been achieved by using stonework windows frames as well as rough plaster. The beautiful authentic wood accents can be easily spotted in the simple bedrooms. Once you get there you will also notice the leather details.
The current holders of this place – Patrick Jouin and Sanjit Manku explain that they have fulfilled a child’s dream – to have their own stylish farmhouse that can be used as a family retreat. And since they invested a huge amount in the renovation, they have decided to choose: solid wood, natural full-hide leather rand brushed metal for their building. And now, let’s have a look at this professionally designed apartment.
