Herzog & de Meuron creates boutique hotel in historic Volkshaus Basel

Swiss firm Herzog & de Meuron has created a boutique hotel inside a century-old building in the heart of its home city, Basel.

The Volkshaus Basel Hotel blends the style of 1920s with a modern design sensibility, creating an aesthetic to appeal to “detail-loving individualists”.

Its 45 rooms are simply furnished but rich in texture, featuring terrazzo flooring, wooden furniture and tactile fabrics.
