The Area: Two hours outside of Milan, located in the Italian Alps within the Camonica Valley between Edolo and Valtellina. Beautiful landscapes include glaciers and lakes, with a wide range of activities for active hikers, skiing enthusiasts and wellness fanatics. It is a 30-minute drive to the Swiss border and another 15 minutes further to St. Moritz.
The DNA: Originally built in 1958, the Albergo Miramonti was once a state-of-the-art hotel for the local area, popular with nearby city-dwellers looking for either a weekend escape or holidays come summertime or winter. Miramonti’s design team decided to maintain its original façade and opted to give the interiors a dramatic overhaul. The interior scheme draws on the elements of earth, fire, water, wood, and metal. Each material was selected for its authentic properties and links to the surrounding nature. arpet made from recycled fibres line the corridors and is inlaid within the sustainable, hand-crafted wooden flooring. Locally sourced and sustainable materials were used wherever possible and the build contractor was chosen for his energy saving principles and employment of workers within the area. An onsite restaurant serves seasonal fare in tranquil surroundings, whilst the hotel spa—fitted with a sauna, jacuzzi and relaxation zones—is an authentic sanctuary for the body and the mind.
Suite-Me-Up: In the minimalistic-style bedrooms, a muted color palette of warm white tones offset by calm notes of blue and green are splashed throughout the walls and accessories. Locally crafted, bespoke wood furniture is found across the property as well as heated wood floors for an elevated dose of modern luxury. Bathrooms come with stone sinks to further amplify the elegant, regional influence on the interior’s natural finishes. To maximize Miramonti’s unique footprint, the designers mixed in plenty of contemporary details like metal-framed bunkbeds equipped with built-in storage and unique bedside tables.
