IL SERENO - House Decades


The Hotel Il Sereno was built on the shores of Italy’s Lake Como, on an existing Darsena, a historical, state-owned dock. The 30-suite hotel blends with its environment, surrounded by the lake’s glistening water, the nature of the dramatic Italian Alps, and the adjacent village of Torno.

It reinterprets the rationalism of Giuseppe Terragni ‘s Casa del Fascio, with a contemporary accent. Materials are natural, mostly local: Pietra di Fossena for the pavement, Ceppo Lombardo for the facade and some interiors.
