Designed by Gerner, Kronick and Valcarcel Architects, The Park Hyatt Macka Palace is located in Istanbul, Turke. Charged with creating a state-of-the-art hotel in a historic building that formerly served as housing for the Italian consulate, the firm designed a modern glass and steel building called Petit Palace to serve as the entry and house all of the public spaces. This created a tangible homage to Istanbul current culture by combining the past and present.
Boasting a platform entrance with steps, guests are ushered into a vast and dramatically sky-lit space creating the ultimate feeling of grandeur upon arrival. The check-in desk, purposefully positioned at the back of the lobby, leads guests through the space to fully appreciate the subtle nuances of the hotel’s vibrant, yet historical design elements.
