A next-generation, affordable hotel that combines economic performance with environmental ambition
Located near Disneyland® Paris, the Villages Nature® resort and the Val d’Europe shopping centre, this new Eklo Hotel designed by the Patriarche architectural firm, targets business and leisure guests. With an emphasis on social interaction, the brand offers a hybrid and atypical range of large communal spaces designed by Studio Janréji, offering comfort, environmental performance and economic efficiency all at once. The hotel has various types of accommodation – classic rooms, family rooms, dormitories, studios and even a flat – to accommodate business travellers, as well as tourists, whether they are travelling as a couple, with friends or with family. A restaurant offers homemade food that promotes local produce, a grocery shop remains open around the clock, and a communal kitchen allows guests to dine freely if they wish. Local residents and workers can also come to work, hold a meeting, eat and drink.
A modular wood hotel operation
In search of sustainable and responsible constructive solutions, the teams at Eklo Hotels sought out GA Smart Building well in advance. Through its unique approach and know-how, GA Smart Building committed to a winning co-design. The operation was carried out in partnership with Ossabois, a specialist in modular wood construction and a subsidiary of GA.
Wooden modules built in the factory… and delivered ready-to-use on-site
The Eklo Hotel in Marne-la-Vallée includes 90 modules totalling 108 guest rooms. Produced in the Ossabois factory in the Vosges, these wooden modules were fully equipped in the workshop: bathroom, lighting, heating, plumbing, electricity, desk, headboard, etc. Once on-site, the modules were assembled and seamlessly connected to the networks located at the back of the modules in a dedicated technical area. The rooms were then finalised on-site with the addition of some extra decorative elements and bedding.
