How can a series of hotel rooms built in 1927 be updated for the 21st-century, applying a classic spatiality, distribution, and language?
The design proposal centers on three fundamental aspects. First, we redistributed the rooms to offer better use of space and more functionality. Second, we reworked the hotel’s Renaissance-inspired motifs: what was once just details on baseboards, cornices, or fabrics, is highlighted and made into a central characteristic.
Finally, we incorporated all the features of contemporary comfort into the space. The renovation is intended to transform a classic hotel into something avant-garde that can respond to the demands of contemporary urban life.
