ARCHITECTURE

PRIVATE PALAZZO

Sitting gracefully on the edge of the Grand Canal for over half a millennium, Palazzina Grassi is an impressive specimen. The first hotel in Italy designed by multifarious originator Philippe Starck, it pays homage to its historical aesthetic roots but offers up a new life and vision as well. The commitment to maintaining the classical skeleton extends to a restored central colonnade and modernized columns throughout the building, which is otherwise taken to extremes in abstraction and geometry, contrasting rigid contemporary standards with those similarly rigid classical elements. Its 26 rooms of course boast canal views, and most elements in the hotel are made to measure by the French designer extraordinaire. Each guest is invited to experience his or her ideal of luxury with 24-hour service aimed to fulfill desires and bring the fantasy of Venetian life to fruition.

For all of Palazzina Grassi’s contemporary touches and inspired luxurious corners, designer-extraordinaire Philippe Starck makes sure that guests never lose site of the fact that are in an ancient palazzo in the heart of one of the world’s great cities, a city throbbing with the echoes of passionately melancholy grandeur.

The decorative elements and materials generally used around the Palazzina Grassi, made from the most exquisite of Venetian traditions of craftsmanship, such as deep mahogany, rich bricks and ‘terrazzo’, melt into the elegance and fluidity of the contemporary design where they are entrenched and smoothly integrated.
