The Ritz Carlton is a contemporary chateau – or as a German speaker would say, a Schloss – on the edge of a canal at the end of the Volkswagen’s Autostadt. Re-designed by Elliot Barnes in 2013, the Ritz Carlton, Wolfsburg is a glass building in the shape of a ‘C’, maybe inspired by ‘castle’, or maybe ‘charismatic’.

The entrance of the hotel unites the Autostadt with The Ritz by bringing the park’s nature inside. The main feature is the “glass forest” commissioned by Savanti of Murano, a freely organized masterpiece of hand-blown glass forms with amber tinted accents inspired by bamboo trees. The shapes of the furnishings and the use of lighting and mirrors throughout the space allude to the world of the automobile.

The reception walls are upholstered in leather accented with geometric polished pink-gold inserts, reminiscent of the most stunning automotive interiors. In the lobby, the Namibia white stone fireplace serves as a focal point and divides the vast space into more intimate seating areas. Each setting is grounded by a rug with patterns suggestive of tire tracks and geometric autumn colored leaves.

The saloon-inspired lounge with its arced wall of cognac tinted glass tubes is called Newman’s Bar. Private seating areas are formed by golden mesh panels offering intimate spaces for relaxation. In the bar’s smoking lounge the walls are covered in papyrus leaves creating an interesting aroma and a cozy ambience that is offset by the back wall of the space which is covered in mirrored boxes punctuated by small touches of light; a meeting of textures and smooth surfaces, multiple reflections and distortion.
