Located in Ragusa Sicily, Italy, Hotel Villa Carlotta created by Architrend Architecture takes reconstruction of a historical building to the next level, further strengthens the rapport between man and residence. While transforming this building into a modern and stylish new hotel the designers had to keep in mind how to preserve some of the historical characteristics of the building. The height of the existing rooms allowed for distribution over two levels connected by a double height hall, made up of steel structure and glass walls, adding a contemporary feel to the pre-existing environment. The restaurant located inside the steel and glass structure faces the large garden with a pool, having an open view of the territory. There are eleven rooms and seven junior suites on the first floor, on the second floor there is a mezzanine hall, six rooms and a suite. This project declares a clear dialogue between the traditional materials present in the old rural building and recovery as well as new construction.
