Its strategic location near the station of S. Maria Novella, a few steps from the convention centre of Station Leopolda and the Theatre of Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, makes it an ideal location to host private and business events. The hotel combines a style inspired by typical Italian design with elegance and comfort, equipped with the latest technology.
The renovation of the facade is outlined as an intervention of recovery that enhances the refinement of the original project characterized by a sophisticated study of volumes and surfaces. Everything is enhanced by the composition of the decorative elements illuminated in a curvy alternation of full and empty spaces.
As a whole, the facade that alternates both vertically and horizontally and projecting elements conveys a sense of great balance.
The use and recovery of materials such as iron and glass for the window surfaces and for the overlooking part of the hall hint at industrial architecture which is enhanced by light elements and hanging terraces of greenery.
This is a far-sighted restoration of the original project that gives a new life to the building.
