Hotel INNSIDE Leipzig Leipziger Ring - Dittrichring 11 | Gottschedstraße 1
Next to the world-famous Thomaskirche, where Johann-Sebastian Bach worked for almost 30 years, a new urban city quarter will be created, initiated by the project developer KSW. The INNSIDE by MELIA is a 4 star hotel with 177 rooms, bar, meeting and congress area, spa and 2 independent restaurants. In the neighborhood of the market square with the old town hall, Thomaskirche and the river Pleiße this modern hotel is being built. The Lord Mayor of Leipzig, B. Jung, said in the autumn of 2014, "A lot of history we can find at this place". Only the façades of 1871 and the front supplement to the Dittrichring of 1926 remain from the Palais Cosmos- Messehaus. The façade is being rebuilt at the second palace, designed by the Leipzig star architect Arwed Roßbach in the neo-Renaissance style of 1871. Behind the façades, a classic, modern hotel structure with a big patio is created, which bring the light into the rooms. Both palais are individuality and have an integrative connection in a new ensemble. The individuality of the palaisand the integrative connection in the new ensemble are visible. The caesura between the buildings as well the new glass roof landscape with restaurants and bars promise fascinating views of the Thomaskirche and the city. With the new complete set, also with a new silhouette, a balance to the grid of Commerzbank is created and the harmony of the architectural visions next to the Thomaskirche. The creative advancement or the new creation by DENDA-ARCHITECTS was carried out in close consultation with the authorities in the sense of a critical reconstruction. The Melia-Ensemble will comprise 8 floors with an underground, ground floor and 6 upper floors. There are 31 parking spaces in the underground car park. The main entrance with the hotel entrance is via Gottschedstraße. The historic facades and the planned modern minimalist design in the interiors, hotel rooms, lobby, restaurants, bars, atrium create a combination of history and modernity, which gives the luxurious hotel and the restaurants a special charm. The start for this project was in September 2014, and the hotel was completed on 1 September 2016. The peculiarities and difficulties were the integration of the remaining facades and building parts, the realization on the river bank of the Pleiße as well as in the cramped conditions of the site, limited by main roads, existing buildings and the river.
