The Paris Hotel du Ministere has expanded into two adjacent buildings, resulting in 18 extra rooms for guests

Opening in 2011, Hotel du Ministere sits close to Rue du Faubourg Saint Honoré and the Champs-Elysées in the nation’s capital. Designed by interior architect and designer François Champsaur, the hotel has recently extended into two adjacent buildings that all connect through a bright and colourful breakfast room.

Having previously been studios for art and fashion, the interiors of the extension have been given a bold, graphic look. Brightly coloured walls and furniture combine with the industrial aesthetic of the structure to create a hugely interesting array of spaces. Duplexes and singular room options are both housed in the new buildings, with most rooms overlooking the courtyard for enhanced light and panoramic views of the area.

Each room features a palette based on one of the three primary colours, with geographic forms and the constant presence of black and white as a continual thread throughout. The bathrooms feature glass tile flooring along with asymmetrical wash basins and marble bathtubs.
