- Sustainable accommodation in Grenoble with OKKO Jardin Hoche
The OKKO Grenoble Jardin Hoche Hotel is located in ZAC de Bonne, a district under redevelopment since 2005 and constructed to meet the requirements of sustainable architecture based on the concept of “an exemplary district of social diversity that strives to lay the foundations for urban living in the 21st century”.
In an environment dominated by environmentally friendly choices, where buildings have low energy consumption to meet the French BBC standard, the OKKO Grenoble Jardin Hoche Hotel is a perfect fit, with interior design by Patrick Norguet stressing the visual identity of the 138 guest rooms and of the Club.
This space is the real heart of the project – 300 square metres designed for guests to socialise, a place where they can interact freely, as well as boasting peaceful corners where guests can retreat to work.
All of this means the hotel reflects the specifics of the Eco-district: not just bio-architecture but social occasions, responding to the three fixed points of sustainability: environmental protection, economic feasibility and social wellness.
So, the OKKO Hotels Grenoble Jardin Hoche invites guests to discover not only the city of Grenoble, but also an environmentally sustainable way of living.
