Translation of the ancient city into contemporary design
Close to famous Venice historical and cultural attractions including La Fenice Theater and the Accademia Galleries, palazzo pianca (more on this here) is based on its strong connection with the city, which is best expressed by the panoramic view of the terracotta roofscape. With its so-called idea factory, the team from piano (more on this here) aims to constantly update the perception of the role of design and to examine the relationships between form and function.
The rooms with their comfortable and inviting atmosphere have been designed so that the well-being of each guest is paramount. The hallmark of the Venetian pianca is defined by clear lines, structural combinations and natural elegance. These elements are expressed through the ambience of the hotel – the lighting and colors, either lively or neutral, are inspired by the typical palette of Venetian facades. This attention to detail marks a constant reference to the tradition of the ancient city.
