Il Sereno is a luxurious hotel located on Lake Como, just 50 km from Milan. The project was realized in collaboration with Patricia Urquiola Architecture Studio in Milan. For the interior fittings and furnishings, the designer chose natural materials, a selection of stone, wood and fabric, to create a contemporary look in stark contrast with the neoclassical style so common in the Lake Como area.
Marble Project laid the marble and natural stone on most of the floors and walls in the 30 suites overlooking the lake and in other areas of the hotel, carrying out on-site surveys using total station, selecting and supplying the best materials, as well as processing, working and installing all the elements. The materials chosen for this project were grey quartzite of Indian origin, titanium travertine of Iranian origin and walnut travertine of Turkish origin, which had undergone specific treatments to eliminate surface reflections and make them even more elegant and natural. In addition to these, other stones chosen were Pietra di Fossena from Tunisia, Verde Karzay granite and Pietra Grey.
Grey Quartzite was used for the floors of the suites and terraces; Titanium Travertine was used for the walls and bathroom walls in the suites, while Walnut Travertine was used for the other bathrooms. The floors in the lobby and reception area were made in Pietra di Fossena and the swimming pool from Verde Karzay granite. Marble Project were also responsible for furnishing parts of the reception area, the lobby and the outdoor bar in Grey Stone.
