Il Sereno has been built on the shores of Italy’s Lake Como on an existing Darsena, a historical pre-existance of state-owned inalienable. Inspired by the color of the lake and its glistening water, the nature of the dramatic mountains, and the adjacent village of Torno. A 30-suite hotel surrounded by the Italian Alps, reinterprets the rationalism of the Casa del Fascio by Giuseppe Terragni, with a contemporary accent. The materials are all natural and mainly local: like Pietra di Fossena for the pavement and Ceppo Lombardo for the facade and some interiors.
Hotel Il Sereno, designed by Patricia Urquiola and located on Lago di Como, is the first new hotel built on the shores of this famous lake in decades. Its interior is a temple of design and lighting could not be more than another vital element to be taken into account in this place since this Spanish designer based in Italy, understands luxury as a synonym of tranquility and elegance, two features related to Flos.
