Situated in Pergolano di Lazise, a few steps from Lake Garda, the Hotel Corte Valier is a discreet luxury location with an intimate setting. Designed and created by Architect Stefano Feriotti, this hotel shows a totally contemporary personality right from its entrance.
The choice of enhancing the natural environment, starting from the garden to then reach the views of an astonishing landscape such as the lake, ensures the building uses pure materials like stone, wood, iron, light tones and plenty of natural light, dosed in a careful and rational manner in order to characterise environments through perspectives and spaces.
The body of the building mainly spreads lengthwise with a north-south alignment and consists of three floors and a basement: a volume which lies on the ground and follows the contours of the coast, becoming an integral part of the landscape. The facade is characterised by panels with horizontal slats, the result of a careful formal and technological research; they enable an effective sun and heat protection.
Hotel Corte Valier
Born from the choice of enhancing the natural environment, the building uses pure materials like stone, wood, iron, light tones and plenty of natural light, dosed in a careful and rational manner. The facade is characterised by panels with horizontal slats, which enable an effective sun and heat protection.
The Hall is the focal point of the whole building; this is a full-height space with an impressive curved wooden ceiling, interrupted by a central skylight which allows light to reach the spaces below. The main protagonist of the lobby is the reception desk; a large rectangular cherry wood block, placed in front of the entrance. The striped flooring is in chocolate brown and Istria yellow Brazilian granite.
The architectural elements, such as columns, walls and volumes, define the space and are used as lightness factors which do not block the space, but redefine its proportions, allowing the perception of the whole as a continuous and open environment. The atmosphere is intimate and quiet, the hall is furnished with round tables and comfortable armchairs.
The walnut bookcases define the conversation area, they do not block the space, but redefine its proportions, allowing the perception of the whole as a continuous and open environment.
The furnishings which make up these interiors, (benches, tables, desks, headboards) have a common aesthetic project, which is evident in the simple lines and art decò inspired design. They have a distinctive formal austerity about them, conveyed by elements such as the very thick tops, the leather inserts and the aluminium feet.
The wall panels in natural cherry with a padded fabric insert fit into this common aesthetic project, essentially based on sobriety and sophistication. The head panel is particularly important as it contains both the lighting with opal glass sconces and the support for the fabric cushions in just a single element made of horizontal panels veneered in cherry wood.
The congress area is a multifaceted and flexible reality, able to become the ideal setting for multiple types of events; where technology plays the leading role. The speakers’ desk, trapezoidal shaped, has a surface finish with matt lacquer in bright orange. The top, in grey melamine, is inserted into the sides of the table. The leitmotiv of the conference room is the colour orange, and it represents the distinguishing feature that identifies the space in question.
The wellness centre is a place of charm. Designed as a meeting point between the ancient tradition which has distinguished the thermal waters of Lake Garda for centuries, and the cutting-edge technological vanguard of the most advanced Spas, it has water as the dominant theme. Stoneware tiles and porcelain Brazilian granite with a brushed finish have been used as flooring and wall panelling throughout this area, while shelves, wall panels and accessories are made of cherry wood.
The Dome restaurant fits into the landscape thanks to its large terraces covered in wood, overlooking Lake Garda. In this restaurant we used warm and captivating materials such as the chocolate brown granite of the flooring, the birch and cherry wood of the storage unit with hinged striped doors, the cherry wood cabinets and the orange Venetian plaster of the columns and wall details. These elements combine elegantly with Murano glass lighting of the same colour as the stuccos.
