Architecture as sculpture: The Fontenay, Hamburg’s premier luxury hotel address. Lakeside in the elegant Rotherbaum district. The Hanseatic city’s first new five-star hotel in 18 years. Equipped with taps and showers by AXOR.
Antonio Citterio’s AXOR Citterio E collection. Soft shapes, precise lines and slender, rounded handles. State-of-the-art linear taps and showers created with high-precision craftsmanship. Elegance and an archetypal feel. The Fontenay’s interior design house, Aukett + Heese, chose Citterio E for this unique combination of qualities.
Antonio Citterio drew inspiration for Citterio E from his native Milan. The collection’s urban chic is perfectly suited for the cosmopolitan city on the Elbe, as well. All faucets and showers are coated with a particularly resistant PVD surface in Brushed Nickel. The warm metallic hue is the ideal complement to the light-colored natural sandstone slabs covering the bathroom walls. AXOR Citterio E 2-hole wall-mounted faucets are mounted above the washbasins. The shower areas feature the AXOR Citterio E shower set.
Panoramic views from the roof terrace. A gourmet restaurant on the top floor. Extensive park grounds. The Fontenay leaves nothing to be desired. Designed by star architect Jan Störmer of Hamburg-based Störmer, Murphy and Partners, the flowing 18,000 square-meter structure comprises three intertwining circular forms. At its heart is a glassed-in courtyard featuring trees and a soaring atrium almost 30 meters high. The building’s style has been described as ‘Modern Classic’. An apt description of the AXOR Citterio E collection, as well.
