About the project

As part of ChandlerKBS’ ongoing provision of Technical Services Assistance to Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts, we provided strategic technical and operational expert advice during the entire project phase of the new build 19-storey, 5* Business Hotel in the city centre of Basel, Switzerland.  Developed by the Baloise Group, one of the largest insurance service providers in the country, the hotel is part of the new Baloise Park, located next to the main station.

The 89 metre high hotel comprises 264 rooms, including 30 suites, a ballroom, large conference facility, complete with ballroom, restaurant, private dining, executive lounge, outdoor terraces and wellness area.

The building was designed by local architects Miller & Maranta and the interior design was created by Matteo Thun from Milan. The timelessly modern interior concept is a unique mixture of Swiss elegance and comfort, combined with design classics.  Soft shapes, highlighted in the lobby and Wine & Coffee Lounge, create a friendly and inviting atmosphere for hotel guests and locals alike.

Paul Henderson, a Partner at ChandlerKBS commented, “It was a great achievement for the team to get this across the line following a long and interesting journey which began back in 2013.  We worked with Mövenpick prior to the signing of the contract, and through the early design phase and concept development, so to now see the hotel ready for operation is a pleasure. The original vision and it’s implementation will surely be welcomed by all who use the hotel.”
