The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Moscow


Year 2015
Status: realised
Client: The Ritz Carlton Hotel Moscow


“The Ritz Carlton Moscow” hotel, located in the centre of Moscow, is one of the city’s top addresses – not least due to its O2 lounge bar on the 12th floor with its approximately 1.100-sq m roof terrace.

It attracts visitors from all over the world with its unforgettable view of the Kreml and Red Square with its historical 16th century St. Basil’s cathedral and its colourful onion domes.

The hotel’s owners commissioned destilat to redesign the entire terrace.

destilat’s concept interprets the terrace as an analogy to a public “plaza” in the sense of a Mediterranean lifestyle, where people with a wide range of usage behaviours occupy this space and fill it with life.

Its completely new zoning comprises lounge areas, fine dining, an outdoor bar, and service stations to achieve the required maximum flexibility of use.

The outdoor bar was designed as a fixed location that can be used all year round.

The bar’s 12 meter-long backlit rear wall with patterns that change depending on the viewers position is one of its visual highlights that was inspired by the backlit agate discs of the bar’s interior.
