Luig-Fragola-interior design Sketch

The Place

To achieve an urban contemporary interior design with historical elements, we juxtapositioned the old with the new, for this amazing rejuvenation of The Place hotel in Florence, converting it into an urban heritage chic boutique hotel and a new landmark in Florence. Luigi Fragola took the magnificent façade of the Santa Maria Novella Church and used some of the clean decorative elements and the subtle colour palette as his major inspiration. Transforming these into a contemporary look by adding carefully selected pieces, like mid-century lighting, contemporary Italian glass tables, pulling it all together with a soft colour palette mixed with strong accents without. 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.
