Hotel Cavour Milan: charm inspired by Giò Ponti
Hotel Cavour Milan: Founded in 1959, Hotel Cavour in Milan is a four-star superior hotel strategically located in the heart of Milan, just a few steps from Via Monte Napoleone and the Brera district, between La Scala and Castello Sforzesco. Spread over five floors, the hotel has 121 rooms, including 7 suites, and is equipped with the best of the up-to-date comforts. This elegant and historic hotel has reorganized its high-profile accommodation offer with a total renovation of the second floor. Declined in a style of refined contemporaneity, the new taylor-made rooms harmonize with the bathrooms, complemented by technical-aesthetic solutions by TECE.
Design concept: refined harmony
The intervention saw the co-operation of the architects Giovanni Montessoro owner of Giovanni Montessoro Studio - and arch. Giancarlo Clementi whom, in total harmony, carried out the general and executive architectural project. The past personal link between the owner's family and important designers, such as Giò Ponti, have inspired the two architects' research in creating new solutions that are never taken for granted or "shouted out", where the substance lies in what cannot be seen but "perceives discreetly".
Objective of the intervention: to achieve the perfect balance between the size of the bedroom / bathroom-cell and the predetermined number of rooms, 17 as in the other floors. The end result is of refined elegance: optimization of well-composed and inclusive spaces, careful choice of materials, perfectly combined. The furnishing solutions are all custom-made and personalized, natural materials - such as wood for the floors of the bedrooms and stone in the bathrooms - are combined in a balanced continuity, the wall coverings alternate boiserie with special glazed or lacquered walls. Furnishings and lamps - also made to design - pay homage to that art of "doing well" with passion and rigor, essential prerogatives for harmoniously solving the complexity of this project.
An island of intimate wellness
Organized in specific functional areas, the bathrooms belonging to the new rooms of the Hotel Cavour Milano are large and comfortable. Through the laminated glass wall, made with a particular process, the natural light of the room diffuses into the bathroom creating an intimate and muffled atmosphere. The custom made furniture is characterized by a concept of refined and contemporary luxury, with smart solutions. The bathroom fittings are completed by TECE solutions, which stand out for their aesthetic, functionality, safety and ease of installation requirements.
The emotional shower offers rain and waterfall jets, complete with chromo therapy. The shower area is flush to the floor, thanks to the integrated TECEdrainline Classic line, hygienic and easy to clean. In addition, TECEdrainline is equipped with an anti-odor membrane siphon and a stainless steel hair sieve which prevents the obstruction of the drainage, particularly suitable for intensive use such as the hotel.
The sanitary area is shielded from view by a wall. For the toilet drain, the extremely silent TECEbox cistern was chosen, equipped with the TECEsquare luxury flush plate in white crystal with white buttons.
