1880 factory in Florence

users 4 bed 4 bath 1

Prices: from € 160 per room 

Originally used as a factory from 1880, then later converted into artisan workshops, until eventually becoming the home-atelier of architect Claudio Nardi in 1999.

Thanks to its slightly secluded location, it offers guests the possibility to relax in an intimate, yet not isolated setting, and to peacefully appreciate an authentic atmosphere far from the hustle and bustle of city life.

This is the perfect urban refuge in which to indulge in every last pleasure: in the summer, you can soak up the sun by the pool; in the winter, you can sit by the fire in the common lounge with stone walls. Alternatively, you can grab one of the vintage bikes, cross the Arno, and breathe in the clean air of the large “Parco delle Cascine”, or perhaps lose yourself among the buildings of the historical city center.


The rooms/ apartments

The rooms are developed in articulated volumes, each different from the other in terms of form, position, and finishings, where antique and modern furnishings, tradition and modernity, and new and old materials come together in a light and natural mix.

Each apartment has its special relationship with the outdoor space, the park, the river, the garden, and the pool.

All lofts are equipped to ensure guests experience true comfort, immersed in design.

The main building of the complex is available for shared use by guests, featuring a common lounge with stone walls, cross vaults, a library, and a large fireplace. The lounge features a large glass window looking out to the private garden and a spectacular white sandstone pool.


Claudio Nardi 

Scents of the past, forms, materials, lines, and shades. Bringing all these elements together by evoking memories of past styles and cultures, transforming a place of residence into a way of life.

This is what Claudio Nardi succeeded in doing when he transformed his home atelier into a relaxing oasis.

The minimalist style is warmed by the materials – stone, wood, and glass; the vintage furnishings are perfectly blended with the elements of design, thus pleasing the eye wherever it happens to fall.
