A grand home becomes an even grander hotel.
Senato is housed in a five-story neo-classic building that was once home to a family of Milanese entrepreneurs. The hotel, which is located right by the city’s top shopping street, Via Montenapoleone, still retains something of the feel of a grand palazzo. Its sleek interiors, with striped marble floors and brass and velvet furnishings, are the work of architect Alessandro Bianchi. He teamed up with local talent, including lighting studio Bottega Gadda, which produced handmade gingko-shaped bronze lamps for the hotel’s lobby. In addition, Bianchi designed a large, shallow pool in the central courtyard to reflect the hotel’s architecture.
