Originally opened in 1929, Piscine Molitor was one of the most popular swimming baths in Paris and was lauded for its beautiful Art Deco style. After closing in 1989 the place fell into disarray, but after being bought by the French hotel chain Accor it’s now been brought back to its former glory – and then some. It has been designed to accommodate a two-story hotel which overlooks the pool complex, with a private members club including rooftop terrace. The design has honored the original Art Deco style of the building, even managing to restore the pool’s original stained glass windows. Each individual room has been designed by Jean-Philippe Nuel in shades of black, white and grey, and come with Bose sound systems and espresso makers.
