The magnificent Hotel VIU building is located between the historical “Chinatown” of Milan and the district of Porta Volta, an area which is under urban renovation and requalification since several years, projected towards the future.
The external building is characterized by glass, wood and metals: the glass façade is framed with luxurious and green plants, chosen to be in harmony with the green ambition of the neighbourhood.
The original Hotel VIU’s interior design has been signed by Arassociati Architects; the idea was to give a seamless interconnection between the building and the eco-friendly surroundings. All the floors are made with dark oak parquet, which is balanced by the natural light and soft colours of the curtains and internal textile decorations. The rooms and the common spaces have big floor-to-ceiling windows, which allow a high diffusion of natural light.
All the building’s furniture is connected to nature: floors are made of wood, the main colours are brown, light brown and beige and everything has been carefully taken care.
When the big main entrance glass door is open, you find yourself in front of a wide lobby where charming carpets and curtains, precious sofas, big libraries full of design and architecture books make you feel in a sophisticated and calm place.
The entire project was built to give a relaxing experience and everything has been thought in order to achieve this purpose: the architecture, the colours, the furniture, everything has been conceived to realize a comfortable environment; in this context, acoustics has a central role.
How can you have a relaxing space if you don’t care about acoustics? If you want to create a pleasant indoor climate, you have to avoid noises, loud voices, traffic sounds and echoes: acoustic control is the king of comfort.
Rockfon® Mono® Acoustic has been the choice they made to obtain the best acoustic comfort: the winning choice in this challenge where harmony, quality, beauty and simplicity must be joined to create such a special place. In the reception area, which is always crowded and noisy, all the ceiling is made of Rockfon Mono Acoustic in a light brown shade, which gives a touch of essentiality and simple beauty.
