The project has consisted in the transformation of a XIX century palazzo into a boutique hotel with only 12 rooms.
The axialidad of the plant of the building was reinforced when moving the second patio, the backyard, to the axis of symmetry of the building. Another important element was the roof, where a small pool and rest areas have been integrated for hotel users.
