Inside The Recently Opened Casa Fantini ⇒ Casa Fantini/lake time is the recently opened 5-star boutique hotel that’s composed of two buildings facing the lake, one that was remodelled and a new construction, for a total of nine rooms and two suites at Pella, in the province of Novara, on Lake Orta.
“Casa Fantini is the result of a passion for the genius loci, for everything that is genuine and made by hand. It represents the culture of the place of my roots, where I can have a deep emotional experience, in the total ‘lake time’ spirit, at the slow pace suggested by the mystical aura of the lake and its silence.” says Daniela Fantini, CEO of Fratelli Fantini, who has a firm bond with this territory, its culture and its family values.
The designer of Casa Fantini, Piero Lissoni, according to his interpretation, designed a “soft, airy spaces where it is pleasant to linger, listen to music, read, meditate, chat, getting lost in the magnificent view… Everything has been carefully and discreetly arranged, ‘incorporated’ to convey an atmosphere of serenity for guests, so they can feel right at home.”
The typical local stone and Accoya wood are the main ingredients, and the wooden facade planks, with their refendino cutting, which is a traditional type of workmanship, have made it possible to tailor a garment for the building that blends perfectly into the surrounding landscape.
Samuel Lorenzi, a partner of Lissoni Architettura, even talks about an indoor/outdoor living situation since the lush lakeside vegetation almost enters the place, also thanks to sliding glass doors on the ground floor.
Another focal point of Casa Fantini/lake time is a kind of internal ‘greenhouse’ created in an open zone of the lounge. It’s a place filled with natural light offering fine views of the greenery outside.
In the construction of this hotel-treasure chest, the goal of the owner was to bring out the value of the charming lakeside site, while at the same time generating a forceful identity. Casa Fantini, in fact, is like a compendium of the company’s finest products, gathered in an ideal permanent exhibition.
