Hotel de la Paix, part of the Ritz-Carlton group, is an iconic luxury hotel situated on the edge of Lake Geneva. Fiskebar is a Nordic-inspired concept and the first of its kind in Geneva. 

With a focus on local ingredients, organic seasonal produce and exceptional seafood, the brief to B3 was to create a space that reflected contemporary Nordic sensibilities, as well as the rigour, quality and simplicity of the dining concept.

We designed two different food offerings within Fiskebar, one a 26-cover high-end restaurant, the other a 20-cover raw kitchen counter for more informal dining. We also created a destination cocktail bar and lounge area within the 220-square-metre space.

While the three areas have their own distinct personalities, they share a feeling of warmth and timeless luxury in keeping with the hotel’s historic architecture.

For the dining spaces, we drew inspiration from the Nordic landscape, choosing textural woods and implementing a dark and moody palette.

We combined bespoke ceramic artwork with luxurious brass details and rich fabrics with opulent paint techniques.

The raw bar features a minimalist aesthetic and has an air of relaxed elegance, with an open kitchen counter taking centre stage.
