Concreta Arredamenti-Contract renovates the interiors of the Hilton Molino Stucky, one of the most prestigious hotels in Venice


Concreta Arredamenti-Contract, company specialized in contract solutions for hotels, commercial and residential buildings, renovated the interiors of the Hilton Molino Stucky hotel. The hotel, one of the most prestigious in Venice, is located in the Molino Stucky, one of Italy’s most beautiful archeological industrial sites. Built between 1884 and 1895, Molino Stucky processed wheat from which flour and pasta were made. Originally, it housed a mill, several silos, warehouses and spaces for work.

The spaces of the hotel tell the story of the building

Concreta Arredamenti-Contract, with a project by Caberlon Caroppi, refurbished the elevators, hallways and bedrooms of the Hilton Molino Stucky preserving the distinctive historical features of the building.

The hallways have walls with soft colors, wall lights and spotlights on the ceiling, and geometrically textured carpeting. Each element blends perfectly with the cast iron pillars of the architectural structure. The color palette used in the rooms recalls the history of Molino Stucky, the historical building that houses the hotel. White and beige evoke the color of flour, brass recalls the metals of industrial machinery and fabric coverings the Venetian costumes of the late nineteenth century. The wall behind the bed features the drawing of the blades of an old mill, while on the headboard a stylized spike is repeated. This symbol is also used to decorate the carpet and the mirror of the bathroom.

Concreta Arredamenti-Contract created some of the furniture of the relaxation area of the rooms, such as the writing desk, the seats and the lamp. Other objects, such as the mini-bar cabinet and the wardrobe, were simply restored, reinterpreting them in line with the concept of the project.
