Balancing a striking duality of tradition and modern design, the Hotel is run by the Renza family – the fourth generation Milanese entrepreneurs – has responded to the times by opening their doors of the five-story neo-classic building that was once their private residence, sharing and maintaining a valuable legacy of history and place.
The boutique-style design was created by the Milanese architect Alessandro Bianchi who was drawn by the values of the property’s former residents.
The architect designed a modern, sleek, cozy interiors, which present a curated selection of luxurious materials, marble, brass, handsome wood parquet flooring, and rich velvet furnishings, combined with an intelligent palette of matt black, bottle green and shimmering gold.
The 43 rooms hotel were custom designed down to the smallest detail and contracted local craftsmen.
The hotel’s symbol of a Ginkgo Biloba leaf is a reference of the trees outside, that are present throughout its interior in the form of beautifully handcrafted lamps.
Laser cut metal doorways and details reference the city’s historic wrought iron gate. Traditional patinas add warmth and beauty to the Senato’s contemporary interiors.
The courtyard has unusually opted to create a novel slate grey stone pool of shallow water that smartly reflects the building’s architecture.
