Antrax IT for Les Fleurs Hotel, Designed by Francesco Lucchese
Les Fleurs Hotel, designed by architect Francesco Lucchese, was created in 2007 from the Alexander Building, a modern building in the historic centre of Sofia, Bulgaria and the home of businesses.
Because of the cold, high tech appearance of the building, due to the use of only glass and aluminium in the external facade, the architect decided to strip the structure of its old appearance and recreate a new and extremely striking exterior.
The Alexander Building conversion project tells of the new role of the building and its new inner life.
The name of the hotel – “Les Fleurs” – evokes the concept of ‘floral’ and has been chosen to give the building a natural, fluid, dynamic and colourful effect, in total contrast with the old Alexander Building.
The floral theme is also present in the indoor spaces, in fact every room is different in terms of size, materials and colours, but has a floral element in common.
The creation of Les Fleurs involved several leading Italian companies, including Antrax IT, which has heated and furnished the interiors with its designer radiators: Tubone, with its pure, simple and linear shape, Treo and its three characteristic aligned openings, which can be used as towel holders, and the elegant Tif, which is suitable for any contemporary well-being space. Antrax IT has also provided the Drop wood fireplace, a dynamic, changeable heating element that harmoniously interprets the future of lifestyle needs.
