MIRAMONTI by Boxx Creative; Italy

Miramonti is a luxury boutique hotel, in Brescia, Northern Italy, located two hours away from Milan and surrounded by stunning natural beauty.
This family-run hotel was originally built in 1958, has a well-established reputation for leading the way, due to its state-of-the-art construction for the time. Its management has now passed onto to the third generation of the family, who wish to continue this legacy through Miramonti’s modernisation and its new focus on locality, desire support the local community and minimising its environmental impact.
Inspired by its surroundings, Miramonti, meaning mountain view, draws its name and design from nature and provides a tranquil escape where guests can experience total relaxation in their surroundings, reconnect with nature and re-balance.

In the twenty-one guest bedrooms, the complementary green and blue colour schemes, punctuated with deeper accents of rich amber and burgundy, are both balanced and calming. Its newly refurbished interiors are an eclectic mix of natural, Scandinavian inspired and made-to-last design, hand-crafted from locally sourced materials by skilled artisans.

Miramonti’s re-design successfully sets it apart once again. Defining a new standard of boutique hotel design for the local area and beyond, Miramonti is marked clearly on the map as a desirable design destination to stay.

What makes this project one-of-a-kind?

The majority of the furniture is completely unique and one-of-a-kind It was designed bespoke by Boxx Creative and then thoughtfully hand-crafted from locally sourced woods by skilled artisans in Saligari’s Tirano-based workshop.

The bedrooms feature wooden headboard panelling, metal framed open cabinetry storage and sturdy desks, each thoughtfully hand-crafted. The unique hand-made wooden flooring with individually controlled underfloor heating system, adds warmth and grounding to each room. Beautiful reeded glass panelled doors with curved frame detailing provide privacy to each ensuite and rippled wooden under-sink cabinets hang beneath attractive natural stone basins.
