Il Sereno presents a new era of luxury hotel for the iconic destination of Lake Como.
Urquiola was involved in nearly every aspect of the design for the Hotel Il Sereno, from its architecture and bedroom furnishings to its staff uniforms and private boats.
The 30-suite hotel is the third property from luxury group Sereno Hotels, which also operates Villa Pliniana, a 16th-century palazzo nearby.
Il Sereno is one of few contemporary properties in the exclusive holiday spot, which Sereno Hotels describes as not having seen any new hotel construction in decades, and is built on top of an existing arched stone boathouse.
