The HOTEL ANGST was considered to be the most prestigious and stylish hotel of Europe between the XIX and XX century and was the top choice vacation spot for Queen Victoria, Claude Monet, Jean Cocteau, Andrew Carnegie, Louis Comfort Tiffany and many others.
Although dilapidated and abandoned today, Angst has remained a symbol for both the Italian Riviera, Bordighera and the tourists that visit the area. Located just 20 minutes from luxurious Monte Carlo and Sanremo, Angst is surrounded by lush romantic botanical garden. The project envision the refurbishment of the 7-story historical building. The residential building will consist in ca. 13.000 square meters and 77 apartments of different sizes.
The common areas of the historical hotel are under restauration to preserve theirs functions and style, as they will be also open for public viewing in certain occasions through the year. These will host the new prestigious lobby space in front of the historical main staircase, an area where the floors, the walls and the ceilings will preserve the feeling of the guest to arrive in a place of endless charme.
Other common area for leisure and outdoor activities, like the pool and the gym, take place into the historical park, rich of palm and botanical spices actually under renovation.
One other main aspect of the project is the construction of a new glass building block on the west side reminding the old glasshouses of the botanical gardens of the 19th century.
