Not disturbing the surrounding beauty with exuberance is a clear sign of style. And not obstructing the view with opulence. But instead, taking a respectful step back in favour of harmony.
This is the design approach chosen for the Hotel Hilton Lake Como by the architects Monica Limonta and Dario Cazzaniga and the Poliform Contract division, close collaborators in defining new parameters of luxury for this accommodation facility that makes hospitality its mission. The outcome of the upgrading and complete renovation of two existing buildings, joined by a modern core, Hilton Lake Como has just been inaugurated, with its strategic position just 30 minutes from Lugano and 50 from Milan.
In the ‘transformation’, the first step was to enhance the natural elements to ensure a peaceful and relaxing stay and the enjoyment of all the tranquillity that the lake has to offer. Above all, natural light. In the common areas, a large glass cube fills the rooms with sunshine, ideal for reading and conversation with the aim of losing any sense of time and space.
The hotel has 170 rooms, including 20 suites and a presidential suite. 10 duplex suites feature a glass ceiling that offers an even more spectacular panorama from the night area. The presidential suite houses a hydro-massage tub with a large solarium area and lounge areas.
In the interiors, the preference is for neutral colours, lit by luminous strips that ennoble the materials, such as wood, stone, fabrics and high-quality carpets, precise details like the cross-stitching and finishes of great value. A sophisticated stylistic touch of simplicity, where great care over the details is always evident. The simple shapes, always refined, and the great value of the Poliform furnishings make a significant contribution to a sophistication that is always tangible. Every article is made to measure, from the value engineering to the selection of the materials, quality control and installation included, carried out directly by Poliform Contract.
In this way, the Taffeta lounge becomes chameleon-like, adapting to the day and night living style of its users with unique passe-partout pieces; and also the Satin space, an innovative concept in which the clients of the restaurant can interact with the chefs and create a personalised meal with the products of the lake, offering themed seating.
An all-round range of actions of the company, which plays at home and held nothing back for the Hilton Lake Como, touching all the common areas – restaurant, hall, concierge desk, bar, spa, meeting rooms – and the private spaces of the guest rooms. Seeing is believing.
