Portofino • 2018

A gentle balance between the artificial and nature, massive walls and the mountain, natural water and artificial fountains. A physical journey through  the history and evolution of the Iranian tradition. An elegant re- interpretation in a modern key of the Persian culture.
We took this shell and core project and turned the concept upside-down, modelling a new experience for the hotel guest by incorporating the surrounding nature and history within the building.
A great start for our new journey in a land rich in cultural and historical inspiration.
