Monastero Arx Vivendi
Arco, Italy
Near the north shore of Lake Garda, a 17th-century monastery
complex hides behind a historic wall standing nearly 23 feet tall.
Nuns continue to reside in a cloister on one half of the property, but
the other has been thoughtfully converted into the hotel Monastero
Arx Vivendi by noa* network of architecture. The goal was to create
something that wouldn't " harm the soul of the existing monastery.
That had to remain the absolute protagonist, " says architect
Francesco Padovan at the Balzano, Italy- and Berlin-based fi rm.
For more than two years, noa* worked with the regional
cultural heritage offi ce to approve all restoration techniques and
material choices. No formal changes were allowed to be made
to the façade, and " though all windows and most of the external
doors are new, all colors were chosen to replicate the original
ones, " adds Padovan. The plaster, the composition of which
was studied to ensure no damage would happen to the antique
masonry walls lying underneath, also corresponds to the tones
found onsite.
Below original rib-vaulted ceilings, guests are welcomed into a
series of public spaces, including a reception area marked by a large
granite desk, a breakfast room with a canteen-style communal table,
and a bar and kitchen with a repurposed well and fi replace. On the
second fl oor, along with a loſt adorned with a skylight and exposed
wooden beams, are the 40 gray-hued guestrooms, each one united
by two former monastic cells. Custom metal and black oak fourposter
beds have an ascetic air that nods to the property's past, as
do the concrete fl oors, walls, and vaults treated to resemble rippled,
timeworn plaster throughout.
All the more surprising, then, are the seven glass and metal
interventions comprising the new garden spa, complete with a
meditative sauna. Drawing from the architecture of the area's old
lemon houses, where citrus was once grown, they are modern yet
fi tt ingly spare, amplifying the landscape.
As an homage to the monastery, " we wanted to refl ect in our
design the feeling of purity and symmetry, " says noa* interior
designer Niccolò Panzani, noting that the new wellness area was
" designed to get in touch with the aura of the ancient monastery by
refusing any excess in decoration. "
