Azimut Hotel St Petersburg
St Petersburg 2014
Azimut St. Petersburg was created in an 18-story high-rise building built in 1967 on the banks of the River Fontanka.
The new concept was implemented storey by storey, respecting the architecture of this, the first skyscraper in the city. The station-like aspect of the entrance area posed a particular challenge, but here the idea of the “living lobby” proved to be ideal, providing designated areas for sitting, working and relaxing even for large numbers of guests – in high-season up to 2000 people per day – using furniture and lighting designed by Ester Bruzkus and Patrick Batek. The highlights of the lobby are the typical Azimut gold-coloured reception block and the eye-catching signage installations that show the way to the reception, restaurant or bar.
