In a 16th century residence in the center of Venice, Palazzo Pianca investigates the new forms of temporary living

History and contemporaneity but also future of hosting, meet in Venice, the master city of international hospitality, in the new project of Palazzo Pianca. The hotel that was born with an exploratory soul and with the intention of abandoning static, in the name of a continuous hospitality evolution.

Palazzo Pianca is the applied research project, a Research Hub that investigates the meaning of hospitality. A fascinating place that rises in the historic center of Venice, not far from Piazza San Marco, and which analyzes the trends and needs of travel, combining them in an interactive space, in the true sense of the word, because it incorporates and interprets the needs, always evolving, of the guest.

Here, everything is constantly changing

Pianca wanted to create a new concept hotel, aimed at understanding what the 'how' of living away are. The proposal is open to modifications, additions, additions and changes of direction. All opportunities aimed at an incessant deepening of the languages of design as well as the requests it should satisfy, and at a refined improvement, both aesthetic and functional.

Between history and contemporaneity, between tradition and new practices

Palazzo Pianca is welcomed by a historic 16th century residence, fascinating both from a structural point of view and from a symbolic point of view: 1500 is in fact the period from which the documents that mention the first date back < / strong> ' From Pianca '. To inaugurate a long tradition, now 14 generations.

Palazzo Pianca, from the suites to the common areas, was designed to engage the senses, with the aim of giving an immediate feeling of comfort. The sober but decisive colors recall the historical colors of the facades of the Serenissima; light design is focused on studying the intensity of light as if to create a combination of emotions, all of which can be summed up in the essence of hospitality; the interweaving of materials and the combinations of different styles - between contemporary and traditional - once again hint at the strong bond of family and space with the history of the city of Venice.

The suites and rooms

The more classic rooms, already excellent in the study of detail, are flanked by three deluxe rooms - Botanic Deluxe, Penthouse Deluxe Blue & Brown and Artist Deluxe - and three suites - Peacock Suite, Giglio Suite, Mezzanine Suite - all to celebrate the experience of a comfortable stay, as if to give the customer a second home.

The suites, which are defined by an open spaciousness of the rooms, are characterized by eclectic styles that are expressed with natural contrasting tones, to emphasize the role of each carefully chosen piece for the interior. Each of the three houses a sleeping area and a measured living room with sofa and relaxation area.

The deluxe rooms, on the other hand, are characterized by bright colors and coordinated materials, unlike the classic ones in which warm tones and soft lighting dominate, with a reassuring spirit.

When the classic meets the made to measure

Pianca has come up with a contract solution that would lead to temporary living, such as that of a vacation or a short (or long, why not) trip, pieces of furniture designed for the occasion but also icons of company history.

Along with custom-made products, Palazzo Pianca is home to classic pieces from the Pianca collections, signed by important names in design such as Calvi Brambilla, Cristina Celestino, Emilio Nanni and Philippe Tabet, as well as to products designed by Tim Kerp, Stefano Gaggero and Metrica Studio.
