Generator Venice

Generator sought to awaken Venice’s staid hotel and nightlife scene with the addition of Generator Venice. Together with local project architect Progetto CMR, DesignAgency worked under the watchful eye of the Venice Fine Arts Committee to renovate an 1855 Palazzo to Venice’s strict city bylaws, uncovering the romance and beauty of the historical building. Stone columns, timber beams, roof trusses and the grand staircases were restored and the building services were upgraded, including the addition of new elevator, rooms and bathrooms.

On the main floor, an expansive lounge contains a breakfast area, bar and flirtatious nooks and crannies that encourage mixing and mingling. Guests meet, dine and hang out in spaces that draw on the magic and romance of the city of Venice itself. Antique pieces such as an apothecary cabinet, four-poster bed and stone fireplace complement a tufted leather bar and custom features by local craftspeople.
