The recent renovation of the historic and famous Hotel Monaco in the heart of Lignano Sabbiadoro, a famous resort on the Adriatic coast, saw the historic building being transformed into a highly elegant hotel once again – but now with a much more tailored and contemporary design fitting of its location.
Architect Oscar Rizzatti literally gave the building a facelift, making skilful use of materials to add value to spaces and raise the quality of the accommodation offering. This radical refurbishment enabled the hotel to upgrade its rating from a three-star to a superior four-star category.
Ceramiche Piemme’s Majestic collection played an important part in this project, as it provided the unifying elements to ensure the stylistic continuity throughout the hotel – from the small but attractive foyer to the communal areas of the floors and the bathrooms of the nine junior suites.
The large-size tiles reproduce all the typical veins and streaking of Carrara marble in fine porcelain stoneware, thanks to its state-of-the-art digital technology. The snowy whiteness of the original raw material combined with the quality of the best Italian-made ceramics bestows immense elegance on all the interiors.
The marble-effect slabs were combined with wenge wood for other floors in the rooms and for furnishings and fittings designed in association with Areedesign of Codroipo (Udine).
Following the renovation project, Hotel Monaco is able to offer 34 rooms, including nine large junior suites. It also features an extensive panoramic terrace with a solarium and relaxation area overlooking the water features of Piazza Fontana, the heart of this resort town. The bar, which is open to the public, and the breakfast room have also been restyled.
