east, the new design restaurant and hotel in the centre of Hamburg, opened in October 2004 at Simon-von-Utrecht-Straße 31.
Bringing to life what he calls "a surreal mixture of East and West, old and new", Chicago-based star architect Jordan Mozer presents his signature narrative architecture and organic design to Hamburg's swankiest address.
East features 125 rooms, lofts and suites in one of the booming northern German city's most daring structures. In a former iron foundry the hotel blends gastronomy, hospitality and nightlife around a three-storey high restaurant.
Four pillars tower within the former factory hall, while dramatically lit parts of the original foundation divide the by candlelight illuminated restaurant area. Alongside Asian accents that complement natural fabrics and pebble-grain leather, different floors are scented in ginger, lotus, jasmine or cinnamon.
Rooms display futuristic, curving forms and bright tones in a cosmopolitan, transcontinental design language. All rooms have king-size beds, cable TV, telephone, minibar, safe, PC socket, shower or full bath and separate WC.
