The B&L Group has been successfully involved in the development of, investment in and management of high-quality real estate for 50 years. As a specialist in office, residential and shop properties and in specialist properties such as hotels, boarding houses and multi-storey car parks, the B&L Group is one of the first ports of call throughout Germany for owners, investors and tenants.
In the old town's pedestrian zone between Theaterplatz and Schillerstraße, the new boutique hotel in the international "Smart Luxury" category is now welcoming its first guests and is characterised by a concept mix of ultra-modern furnishings and classicist accents. Even from the outside, the architecture of the building stands out with its hybrid character. The neo-baroque façade, which is a listed building and has just been restored, merges seamlessly into a timelessly modern new building with an elaborate roof construction. This stylistic approach also runs through the interior design of all rooms - in 102 guest rooms, the in-house bar and on the roof terrace, minimalist stylistic elements repeatedly meet lovingly preserved historical details, making the Hotel Schillerhof the ideal starting point for a charming cultural holiday in Weimar, which is steeped in history.
In the centre of Dortmund, an example of successful conversion of a historic administrative building has now been completed: The Dortberghaus, built between 1937 and 1938 between the station forecourt and the city centre, has been turned into a modern IntercityHotel and thus also the largest hotel in the city of Dortmund.
The B&L Group has lavishly restored the listed building with a gross floor area of 12,900 m² over the past three years and adapted it for its new use. A total of over 30 million euros was invested in the restoration. The plans were provided by Ralf Schulte-Ladbeck from the Dortmund architects' office A-SL-Baumanagement. The interior of the building was designed by Milanese architects Matteo Thun & Partners. The property has already been handed over to the new tenant, IntercityHotel GmbH. At the beginning of May, the hotel will open as a modern conference hotel with 231 guest rooms.
Once completed, the Schillerhof will be an architectural highlight in the heart of Weimar's old town: the freshly restored neo-baroque façade merges seamlessly into a timelessly modern new building with a spectacular roof construction.
It captivates with a mix of contemporary design with classicist accents, for example stucco from the original Gründerzeit building. On 31 March, B&L Real Estate GmbH handed over this exceptional property to the operator, Clipper Boardinghouse GmbH & Co. KG, which will establish a new own brand with the HOTEL SCHILLERHOF WEIMAR. With 102 guest rooms, the modern boutique hotel expands the range of accommodation for discerning visitors to the city of culture. After the Clipper team under the leadership of the new hotel manager Teresa Baier has made the house ready for operation, the first guests will already be welcomed in mid-April.
