Armani Hotel Milano
14 Nov. 2011
ARMANI OPENS ARMANI HOTEL MILANOGiorgio Armani opened its Armani Hotel Milano, the second hotel that was launched within the Armani Hotels & Resorts project in collaboration with Emaar Properties PJSC. Following the success of the Armani Hotel Dubai, located in Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, Armani Hotel Milano has just opened in the heart of the city on Via Manzoni 31, originally designed by Enrico A. Griffini and completed in 1937 in the rationalist style of the time.
Inside the building, Giorgio Armani has created a world where luxury, calmness and beauty are unified in the pure Armani style: “I have concentrated all my efforts on delivering my personal aesthetic vision within a precisely defined ambience of total comfort,” explains the designer. Mohamed Alabbar, Chairman of Emaar Properties, added: “Armani Hotel Milano, the newest addition to Emaar's international portfolio of world-class lifestyle projects, is a testament to our confidence in the design philosophy of Giorgio Armani, who has changed the world of fashion.”
The hotel hosts 95 rooms and suites that offer a variety of options: from Armani Deluxe Rooms (up to 45 square metres) to Armani Signature and Armani Presidential Suites, ranging from 170 to 200sqm, on two levels connected by a striking architectural impact stairway. The floors and walls in natural nuances of creamy brown are clad in Silk Georgette, a smooth limestone from Asia. All the furnishings in the hotel share the Armani/Casa collection signature design philosophy: from the elegant linear sofas covered in sophisticated fabrics, to the backlit wooden bed heads.
All the public areas are concentrated on the 7th and 8th floor in the so-called glass “hat”, which offers a spectacular panorama of the city, from the historic Duomo to modern skyscrapers. The 7th floor houses The Armani/Ristorante, and on the opposite side, the Armani/Lounge with the Armani/bamboo bar whereas the 8th floor gives room to the Armani/SPA.
Last but not least, this Armani hotel, created within a Palazzo, is shaped by the architectural ground plan as an immense “A", only visible from above.
