To make Europe’s highest wooden hotel, on the Pesaro waterfront, to update the tourism offerings of the Adriatic coast, under the sign of sustainability: this is the latest challenge of Nardo Filippetti, founder of Eden Viaggi, with the new Nautilus, a 4-star family hotel to be opened this spring.
28 meters of height for 7 levels, built in just two months of work, using large panels of lamellar wood: the design of Hotel Nautilus is an innovative project by the architect Marco Gaudenzi, which stands out for high standards of sustainability and energy savings, and the use of natural materials from the local territory.
Like wood, taken to the seaside and gathered directly on the coast, used for the reception counter, the boards indicating the hotel rooms in the corridors, the headboards and bedside units of the Superior and Classic rooms.
The focus on the use of renewable resources has also guided the installation of two different solar systems on the hotel roof: a photovoltaic system with power of 19 kWp and a second thermal system for production of hot water, providing 60% of the hotel’s needs.
The principles of bioarchitecture blend with the typical Atlantic furnishings style, with pale colors and references to the sea, not just in the rooms but also in the common areas. The bar stands out for the counter faced with a metal patchwork like the keel of a large ship, connected to ropes that wrap the support columns.
