Aimed at a super premium target, this luxury hotel in Northern Umbria, Central Italy, includes a medieval hamlet complete with a 12th Century castle and a crypt dating back to the 7th Century B.C. It is set to become a global reference in sustainable hospitality.
The project’s masterplan is by Woods Bagot (ranked n.6 in BD’s World Architecture 100) while the interiors are by Tokyo’s celebrated design studio SPIN.
In addition to the 109 rooms and the 70 luxury residences for sale, the complex features an 18 holes golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones, a restaurant, an equestrian center, a cookery school, an organic farm, a 12000 sqm spa and a vineyard.
The renovation works comply with the most rigorous environmental standards. In effect, Antognolla Castle will be the first 12th Century castle to gain US Green Building Council’s LEED certification.
Rethink Energy was in charge of the design of mechanical, energy, electric, special and fire systems, from preliminary phases through to completion, as well as of the coordination and MEP project management, combining heat pump and vegetable oil-based cogeneration green technologies.
