High standard hostel at affordable prices, surrounded by a high quality landscape that brings a fresh look into one old part of the city. A project that takes place in the plot behind the Saint Sebastian temple, at just two minutes walking from the Duomo in the center of Milan, Hostel San Remo represents a design challenge and a great opportunity for space redevelopment.
The main idea of the project was to design a modern building for a hostel, following the idea of “Grafting”; in which, modern architecture is inserted in the context of the historical center of the city, and a dialog between the existent historical architecture and modern one is stablished.
The underground and ground floors of the hostel create a continuity with the new landscape and the city environment, while the the rooms and different functions the hostel provide, follow a modular logic.
