THE ST REGIS VENICE
The project involves the renovation of the Westin Europa & Regina hotel in Venice located in the heart of the city just a few steps away from Piazza San Marco. It is an intervention of about 20.000m2 aimed at restoring the historic Grand Hotel Britannia – first opened in 1895 – to its original splendor. Through the restyling of the 169 rooms and suites and the various common areas such as spa, restaurant, the Library, the terrace and garden which offer a breathless view of the Grand Canal and some of the most famous monuments in Venice, rises “The St Regis Venice”, new point of reference for 5 stars luxury hotel.
The reduction of the number of rooms has allowed to get more generous spaces. The operation has also foreseen the reconfiguration of the plant installations and the structural reinforcement of the existing floors and walls. The façades of the buildings called “Palazzi” Tiepolo, Barozzi, Canova and Regina, composing the complex of “The St Regis Venice” hotel, have also been restored. Finally, the architectural design of all the common areas located on the ground floor, of the 129 rooms and 40 suites, has been meticulously renovated with a sophisticated and modern Venetian-inspired touch.
The strategic position of The St Regis Venice, where the Grand Canal opens in the “Bacino San Marco”, has made indispensable the supply of materials and machinery by water, transforming the management of the construction site and interferences with maritime traffic into a real “Tour de force”.
SCE Project has been involved in the analysis and verification of the concept design and the identification of eventual critical issues, interdisciplinary and regulatory coordination, and the technical and construction architectural design. SCE Project was also involved in the technical assistance on site.
