For the design of the luxury guestrooms and suites, architect Massimo Magaldi explains that an understated selection of colours, materials along with fittings and furniture reduced to their essentials was an optimal way of expressing calm, well being and the spirituality of being in an historic place. To achieve this aim, Massimo Magaldi collaborated with Villeroy & Boch, whose modern collections and concept of the bathroom and wellness are in line with the architect's sober and elegant taste. Minimalist fittings, such as the Loop & Friend ceramic surface mounted washbasin, give emphasis to the clean lines of surrounding spaces. Meanwhile, mirrored surfaces, transparent walls and sliding doors amplify volumes and extend sight lines. A feature freestanding bathtub (Aveo New Generation) in the bathroom and wellness zone is visible from the main guestroom through a glass wall, providing an aesthetic of well being and luxury that is increasingly demanded within high end hotel environments.
