Luigi Fragola Architects created an urban heritage chic interior design for the Place Firenze taking Santa Maria Novella church as inspiration. To achieve an urban contemporary interior hotel design with historical elements, we juxtapositioned the old with the new. By rejuvenating The Place we converted it into an urban heritage chic boutique hotel and a new landmark of Florence.
Luigi Fragola took the magnificent façade of the Santa Maria Novella Church by using some of the clean decorative elements and the subtle colour palette as his major inspiration. He transformed the hotel design, giving it a contemporary look by adding carefully selected pieces. By introducing mid-century lighting, contemporary Italian glass tables, pulling it all together with a soft colour palette mixed with strong accents throughout.
The result is a harmonious hand in hand between the historical heritage and contemporary living of today, giving you a warm welcome to the beautiful city of Florence.
