Piuarch renovates Milan’s M89 Hotel

Design-wise, the building is in sync with the preexisting structures.

In Milan, the M89 Hotel, a property facing the former Caproni factory (now home to fashion house Gucci), has been renovated by Piuarch.

Design-wise, the building is in sync with the preexisting structures. Opposite the building is a series of brick blocks of the Caproni factory. On the outside, the property has the outline of factory halls. The ground floor has a wide glass wall with a metal grate, at the same height of the industrial buildings outside, thereby continuing the façade on the street.

The color palette of the entryway includes gray, white and green. At the lobby, there are contemporary furniture and 1950s pieces throughout, as well as sofas and geometric-patterned rugs. At the bar, the ceiling was painted white, and there are cylindrical light fixtures that contrast with the hexagonal floor tiles. Meanwhile, the grey walls have prints reproducing the architectural heritage of the former Caproni factory.
