The world fashion capital has a haute new looker! After a multimillion-dollar revamp, Milan’s circa 1932 Excelsior Hotel Gallia, a Luxury Collection Hotel, was officially inaugurated on May 12th-and the design is unapologetically dripping in space age luxe. Taking inspiration from the city’s modernist new skyline and the hotel’s art deco past, Milan-based Studio Marco Piva helmed the makeover, decking every inch in out-of-this-world chic futurism.
Owned by Katara Hospitality and situated in the heart of the city’s rapidly emerging Porta Nuova district, Excelsior Hotel Gallia is a glittering reflection of Milan’s rich culture, sophisticated style and vibrant scene. This historic hotel has been one of the most prestigious hotels in Milan since 1932 when it first opened as “Palace Gallia”. JUST FEW MORE of the highlights that made Milan Design Agenda crying out loud!
Led by the award-winning Milan-based Studio Marco Piva, the extensive architecture and interior design project marries contemporary aesthetics with the hotel’s original Belle Epoque architectural style. The renowned design firm also curated the unique collection of more than 500 art pieces, including paintings, sculptures and pictures, specifically for Excelsior Hotel Gallia.
The interiors feature distinct references to the stylish Milanese lifestyle and timeless elegance of the Art Deco era, brought to life by unique furnishings that have been exclusively created by Italian designers and craftsmen.
