The stunning five-star Palazzo Venart Luxury Hotel opened its doors to the public in August 2016 and features 18 prestigious and painstakingly decorated rooms and suites, each based on a unique aspect of Venetian history and culture.
The entire 16th century Palazzo and grounds, which are fronted by a serene garden that opens directly into the Grand Canal, have been meticulously restored to their former glory. Original features such as Renaissance frescoes and marble fireplaces have been expertly restored by Venetian specialists and complimented with antiques and custom furnishings to showcase the Palazzo’s regal heritage.
According to regulations, the indicated building and green space were both biologically constrained. The main body of the building had three cells facing the Grand Canal, which was where most of the people lived, and a “L”-shaped body adjoined to it had a more intimate and reserved courtyard that connected the complex to Calle Tron – where the main entrance to the structure is located – which closed off the second internal courtyard.
From a structural, thermal, plant engineering, image, and comfort standpoint, the intervention ensured that the entire technological component of the building was completely efficient while fully preserving the significant historical character that was previously there.
Thanks to functional reuse, there was a reasonable balance between project requirements and respect for the context’s architectural elements.
Each setting featured a diverse range of furnishings and finishes that were all smoothly integrated into the new distribution spaces, which functioned as hallways, common areas, service rooms, and sleeping quarters.
