Description

In this project the input supplied by the client was to exploit the potential of the entire complex made from three separated building; the oldest one, “the Castle”, with few rooms, the main building and welcoming area, “Il Palazzo” where are located the conference centre and BoH, including the kitchen, and a third building “Ex-stables” on two floors immersed in green park but separated by a public road from the Palace and a service area from the Castle.

The issues to investigate and resolve were the following:

  • analysis of the market and competitors pricing
  • definition of room size and type
  • development of a coordinated strategy for the complex
  • concept design “ex-stables”
    • With the help of the client we created an ad-hoc strategy and tailor made design to enhance the uniqueness of the new addition, different from the existing buildings for dimensions, shape and architecture. All the new guestroom were spacious rooms and unique.

      The idea was to incorporate the style of the original building and re-used some elements of the original furnishings to decorate them. Particular attention was place in the functionality of the complex in order to lower operation costs.
      For these reasons we decided to design additional rooms on the first floor, without diminishing the sizes, to get a better balance between an adequate number of visitors and the service offered.
