REPUBBLICA BOUTIQUE HOTEL
An existing Bank lays on the building in front of Piazza della Repubblica in Florence, Italy. We where given this building to transform it in a minimalistic boutique hotel, without missing out the essence of being in Florence. As inspiration, I took the narrow streets in the city that takes you to big open piazzas. These streets providing really low natural light, pavement reflections and only getting light from the open sky above the high buildings, I recreated these mood of small streets opening to big spaces on my boutique hotel using black walls and white ceilings. As for the rooms. I chose a very Florentine color pallette as the olive green, and the tuscan orange.
