In the heart of Geneva, a city that effortlessly blends history with contemporary allure, a remarkable transformation is underway at the iconic Hotel Metropole. Spearheaded by the visionary team at Stuart Forbes Associates (SFA) and brought to life through the lens of VISUALHOUSE, this project is set to redefine luxury and sophistication for a mythical hotel in Geneva. 

Stuart Forbes Associates, renowned developers with a keen eye for excellence, secured the role of operators for Hotel Metropole after a successful bid in an international competition. Subsequently, SFA entrusted VISUALHOUSE with the task of crafting a visual narrative that would not only redefine the hotel’s identity but also elevate it to a lifestyle destination. 

Collaboration with Independent Hospitality Associates (IHA) solidified the hotel’s transformation into a ‘lifestyle’ haven for Geneva. VISUALHOUSE, in tandem with SFA, embarked on a journey to reimagine common spaces and guest rooms through the artistry of CG Imagery. The result is a seamless fusion of history and timeless luxury, creating an atmosphere that transcends traditional boundaries. 

Nestled on the left bank, facing the lake and the English Garden, Hotel Metropole has been an emblem of Geneva’s hospitality since 1854. The rooms and suites, whether lake side or city side, offer diverse atmospheres, from classic charm to a more contemporary art of living. It’s an exquisite blend of tradition and modernity.

A favorite among Genevans, the Mirror Bar at Hotel Metropole enchants visitors with its cozy atmosphere, an extensive selection of cocktails, and breathtaking views of the city lights. It’s a haven for those seeking redefined relaxation and a touch of glamour in the heart of Geneva. 

Undoubtedly stealing the spotlight, the MET Rooftop & lounge perches atop the hotel, offering an idyllic panorama of Geneva. As one of the city’s premier spots, it provides the perfect backdrop to admire the sunset and spend unforgettable evenings with friends. It’s an experience that transcends the ordinary, inviting guests into a world of unparalleled beauty. 

VISUALHOUSE’s collaboration with Stuart Forbes Associates has not only revitalized Hotel Metropole but has also set a new standard for luxury in Geneva. The marriage of CG imagery, visionary design, and a commitment to preserving the hotel’s rich history has resulted in a masterpiece blending the past with present. Hotel Metropole, once a mythical gem, now stands as a testament to the enduring elegance that defines Geneva’s spirit.
