Piazza Palco: Milanese Hotel

6-week study abroad project

The premise of this project is to create a modern boutique hotel that responds to the historic and cosmopolitan context of Milan, Italy. Situated in Milan’s Financial District on the Piazza Cordona, between Piazza Duomo and Sforza Castle, the building creates a grand sunken public theatre while maintaining a private interior through a system of layered screens and shutters.
