Due top designer italiane di livello internazionale – Carmelina Santoro di New York e Diamante Pedersoli (figlia dello scomparso attore Bud Spencer) – hanno contribuito alla progettazione nel nuovo design hotel di Miami, il Betsy South Beach, sviluppo di una struttura preesistente. L’hotel costituisce l’ultimo investimento di questo tipo nella città americana da sempre all’avanguardia per soluzioni di progettazione in campo urbanistico.
Di seguito la nota in inglese che illustra l’iniziativa.
Shulman + Associates (S+A) is happy to introduce its latest hospitality project, a synthesis of boutique hotel, cultural facility and urban intervention: The Betsy- South Beach in Miami Beach, to be inaugurated in December 2016.
Located prominently in the Miami Beach Architectural District of South Beach, the hotel offers a rich mix of elements: preservation and rehabilitation of historical structures, the injection of new buildings into the rich South Beach streetscape, and striking spatial and formal interventions that create exciting experiential moments.
The hotel is the result of a collaboration among Miami-based S+A, the famed Betsy – South Beach hotel and its owners the Plutzik family, and interior designers Diamante Pedersoli and Carmelina Santoro.
S+A Principal Allan Shulman remarked, “The development of the design to the Betsy’s specification required close communication with both owners and management, but what was most striking was the creative collaboration that allowed a comprehensive artistic treatment of spaces and surfaces throughout the building.”
