Inspiring are also the letters, words and quotations of Leipzig-based poets and thinkers on the wall behind the bed tumbling down directly into the guests’ heads.

“Our claim and, at the same time, our strength lies in the ability to create authenticity and implement it perceptibly,” says Cord Glantz, who together with his twin brother, Rolf Glantz, manages GEPLAN DESIGN, one of the leading German offices for interior design.

A planning approach entirely in the spirit of the family-run hotel group H-Hotels.com, when it contacted GEPLAN DESIGN in the autumn of 2017, in order to realize an innovative hotel concept: On a space of round about 12,000 square meters, the double brand made up of HYPERION Hotel and H2 Hotel combines the offerings of a luxurious business hotel with those of a young budget hotel. Since the beginning of March, restaurants, bars, fitness and conference areas, 524 rooms and six suites have been indulging guests from around the world, from city tourists eager for adventure up to demanding business travelers. “This cross-over concept of the two houses is a novelty in the hotel business. It will change Leipzig,“ Rolf Glantz is certain.

Why guests book a particular hotel decisively depends on the offering of the hotel and the quality of its interior design. The guests want to feel good and enjoy comfort. This is where GEPLAN DESIGN sees its responsibility. Perfect function and logistics are the key terms for the interior designers. It is about reasonable routing and the most effective deployment of personnel. For the concept to work economically, a smooth operation must be guaranteed. “This is an extremely important point for us planners,” Cord Glantz emphasizes. “Ideally, we are therefore involved in the planning by the future operator at a very early point in time. This is the only way for us to get the best out of the high-rise architecture in complex hotel projects like here in Leipzig, and secure financial advantages for the operator.”
