an inner courtyard, conceived as an open-air living room, has been filled with sofas and armchairs, while the large courtyard — that the most exclusive suites look out on to — is designed to be a space open to all. the boutique hotel consists of 43 rooms, with different paintings, colors, and material giving each room a unique character and personality. additionally, items within both the rooms and the common areas can be purchased by guests, a gesture intended to signify the growing relationship between interior design and customer experience.
