Design Hotels in Italy, Ca' Pisani Hotel
Ca’ Pisani Molfetta, the building housing the Design Hotel Ca' Pisani, is a typical patrician Venetian palace. Originally built in the late 14th century, it was then altered in the 16th century. Architect Roberto Canovaro’s restructuring has renovated the palace and highlighted the characteristic elements of the original building, transforming it into a 29-room boutique hotel.
The interior decoration reinterprets with a contemporary twist the Art Deco taste of the avant-garde movements which blossomed in the period between the two Wars: the lobby reflects the essential forms of Futurism, with a wealth of marble and walnut wood, while the walls of the rooms have painting treatments that bring to mind Mondrian’s bold graphic lines, in soft tones like pastel mustard yellow, terracotta, muted orange, beige and grey. Eye catchers in the rooms are elements in silver and amaranth, leather armchairs, expressly designed wardrobes and side furniture, beds from the nineteen thirties and forties all patiently collected from all over Italy, and the Futurist-inspired inlaid doors exclusively designed and created by architect Luigi Pescolderung.
Our Design Hotel has brought to Venice a new concept of hospitality: the highest comfort in a warm atmosphere that re-interprets art deco style in a contemporary key. The lobby is a Futurist whirl with its many elements in shiny marble and polished walnut wood and the continuously changing uplights embedded into the floor.
The style is characterized by the refined and loving re-interpretation of the 1930s and –40s, and by the figurative-geometric expressions of Futurist artwork.
Hotel Ca’ Pisani represents the ideal alternative to the classic Venetian hotel, and is highly appreciated by leading figures of the world of fashion and entertainment. The contrast between the exterior, with a façade dating back to the last 16th century reconstruction, and the eclectic feel of the interiors is truly stunning.
Contemporary elements and innovative materials make the difference: the “starlight” finish and steel accents, the silver and amaranth colour scheme, the bamboo flooring, and the wealth of marble and walnut wood, all combine to give an extremely sophisticated feel to this hotel.
The top floor of the palace boasts a splendid penthouse with three rooms, each one unique in its décor and facilitated access to the Turkish bath called “stua” (stove) that all the grand Venetian homes once used to have, and the typical roof- terrace solarium called altana, which opens out over the rooftops of Venice.
The rooms are equipped with remote control door opening with transponder key, electrically-operated curtains and drapes, direct telephone (Bang & Olufsen), satellite TV, mini-bar, room safe, broadband connection, ISDN lines, complimentary Wi-Fi, sprinklers and smoke detectors.
The bathrooms walls are in an innovative material called “starlight” which creates the effect of small shining stars; all are equipped with whirlpool baths, hair-drier and towel warmers.
