Futuristic hotel with focus on "inner life" care takes shape in Paris
POSTED 11 Feb 2019 . BY Andrew Manns
Construction has begun on "Villa M" – an integrated hotel that will explore the many dimensions of healthy living and communal wellness.

The brainchild of French designer Philippe Starck and Triptyque Architecture, Villa M, which stands for – among other things – "medicine, mutualism, and mobility" – will comprise a hotel, gym, restaurant, and bar, as well as exhibition, residential, and working spaces.

Another major amenity of the property will be its healthcare centre, a space that will offer guests and visiting medical practitioners guidance on various topical issues, such as stress management, burnout prevention, and addiction control.

The slanted, 8,000 sq m building will also feature biodiverse vertical gardens designed by landscaping studio Coloco.

According to the project’s developer, Groupe Pasteur Mutualité (GPM), Villa M will explore the "health of tomorrow" by attempting to "combine heath with pleasure".

Thierry Lorente, managing director at GPM, commented: "It will encourage the mixing, exchange, and mutual aid between different specialities and different generations of professionals.

"Its different spaces will be designed to enlighten and accompany them in the face of ongoing changes in their environment."

In a statement, Philippe Starck called the project a "conceptual religion" and "an intelligent tool adapted for the future inner life".

Villa M is scheduled to launch in 2020.
