Situated on the ground Floor of the Hotel City Zurich, is the new Restaurant and Bar Löweneck, designed by Dyer-Smith Frey. Opened in January 2014, the interior design concept reflects the standards of the restaurant’s cuisine: freshness, originality and authenticity. Materials such as untreated wood, elements of tin, concrete, and white tiles characterise the aesthetics. Benches with Aztec print covers, as well as the bar-counter (made of raw wood and graphically designed), have been custom-made, making a comfortable and spacious room.
Elegant ceiling lights, bar lighting using old Edison lightbulbs, and chairs from the Swiss manufacturer Horgenglarus, link new and old, which gives the dining area a special charm. The custom made counter with its graphic design, is made of rough-hewn oak with a tin sheet counter-top, and this forms the centrepiece of the restaurant. Dyer-Smith Frey intended that ‘the urban, vibrant spaciousness of the restaurant’ would be ‘a wonderful addition to the design concept of the hotel.’
