Originally built in the 1930’s, Das Stue’s diplomatic legacy is evident in the heritage building’s stately architecture and modernist façade, designed by German architect Johann Emil Schaudt (1871-1957) and inspired by Danish classicism. Located in Berlin’s diplomatic quarter.
Das Stue was renovated to invoke a calming ambience, with open spaces and contem¬porary minimalist design. The Potsdam based firm Axthelm Architekten added a new wing on the building’s former back courtyard, which is clad in a floral patterned photo concrete surface acting as an elegant counterbalance to the rough dressed stone of the main building.
While Patricia Urquiola artistically directed and designed all public spaces and fluidly integrated shared spaces such as the lobby, cocktail bar and restaurants, LVG Arquitectura finalized the interior room and suite design.
Das Stue’s daylight Spa, which opens its doors to the courtyard when the first rays of sunlight emerge, offers three treatment rooms, an indoor swimming pool, as well as a glass sauna and gym. In addition to the wellness centre, two intimate library lounges offer guests a private and elegant retreat to relax.
Paco Perez, who has earned 4 Michelin stars in his two restaurants in Spain, leads the culinary direction of Das Stue. Paco brings his influence from the Mediterranean to the kitchen giving guests the choice of two dining experiences- >>The Casual<<, or the fine dining >>Cinco<<, which received its first Michelin star within its first year of opening.
The hotel’s bar is located in the rear zone of the lounge and has access to a terrace. The credo here is classic bar culture. Some drinks are adaptations of forgotten 1920’s and 1930’s cocktails; others are inspired by chef Paco Perez’s flavours. Spirits include unusual whiskies and cognacs not otherwise available in the German capital. The bar overlooks the zoo through expansive windows.
Each of the 78 guestrooms is outfitted in subdued modern decor that emphasizes polished surfaces and rich fabrics. The rooms are designed to recall the open spaces of villa environments, complemented by high ceilings, hardwood floors and views of the adjacent Tiergarten; 11 rooms feature terraces and balconies.
