From the designers
In the previous few decades, in this most important establishing area of Zurich, a lot of imaginative men and women, clubs and worldwide organizations have located their property. Zurich West’s character is influenced by a mixture of former industrial location and the new development of the quarter. Zurich West is property to the highest building and the biggest multiplex cinema in Switzerland, but it is also property to the Zurich Schauspielhaus’ off-stage and the Academy of Art. Galleries, modest theaters, bars and clubs make Zurich West the cultural melting pot and trend quarter of the city. As portion of the Challenging Turm Park areal, the 25hours Hotel Zurich West generates a dynamic unit with extra companies and foods service companies. The tram line 4 connects directly to the Hauptbahnhof, the previous town and the lake.
The 25hours Hotel for Zurich was created with the team of Alfredo Häberli Design Advancement. The Zurich designer with Argentinian roots is acknowledged for his innovative concepts for brand names like Alias, Camper, Iittala, Kvadrat, Vitra, Luceplan or Moroso and was named Designer of the 12 months in 2009 by Architektur&Wohnen (Architecture and Living magazine). In Zurich West it is the first time he’s been accountable for the complete style of a hotel and in this task he continues to mix his typical witty product with new, thrilling tips, which have been created for and with 25hours.

In the normal manner Alfredo Häberli surprises with his contribution as designer of the hotel, including his double-entendre and value added in the diverse aspects of the rooms. If you search closely, his subtle questioning of standard values may make you snicker or smirk. With the doing work title of “the smile of my hometown” the hotel is riddled with artistic and graphical interventions, which lead the guests out into the new house town of 25hours and into the favourite spots of the style crew – past banking institutions, chocolate and clocks.
