Live Project

The Sheraton Hotel in The Cristoforo Colombo International Airport, is the first example of an airport hotel in Italy. The starting conditions were critical, and Sheraton standards for indoor sound levels were very strict.

For these curtain walling, it was essential to grant an exceptional level of soundproofing, ranging from 51 to 60 dBA depending on the position (airport side – street side) and purpose of the indoor rooms.

The tall green tower, used by the architects, Alfredo Corradini, Sandro Serapioni and Pierluigi Raule distinguishing the project, symbolizes this respect of the environment, though within the critical conditions of a building at the airport. Colour was used to highlight function: green on a sky-blue background for the sleeping area; warm and earthy the basic block for services and the Convention Center. The 9-floor silver containing the rooms, built using a green structural curtain walling, contrasts with the base block (3 floors) containing hotel services and the Convention Center, built using natural travertine marble and warm "walnut" colored inserts.
