Fields of intervention: architecture, interior design
and landscape design


The project was born from the unification of three adjoining buildings, each with different stories, courtyards and facades, into a single building, seeking to maintain the correct balance between restoration and innovation.
The architectural project reconfigures the roofs into a new piano nobile that can be used by hotel clients, residents and the general public alike.
This architectural gesture carries over into the very heart of the building, transforming the three small enclosures into a single courtyard of generous proportions featuring an all-season covered garden open to the rest of the city and offering a wonderful prospect for the rooms fronting onto it. To maintain the luminosity of the interior spaces, the facades overlooking the courtyard are entirely in glass, whilst perimetral balconies and vertical elements in wood offer protection and enable the influx of light to be balanced with the need for privacy.
The historical context and the enhancement of important architectural features is also the starting point for the development of the hotel's interior design, where the interpretative matrix is again contemporary and introduces unexpected and sometimes ironic elements.
