• T-Code



The façade of the San Pietro (Saint Peter) Palace hotel, is characterized by a sequence of high arched openings, which offered an unusual architectural scenario for the T-Code. The arm awnings of Pratic, the leading brand in Italy for the design and production of pergolas, awnings, outdoor structures and terraces, have proved to be the perfect choice to offer the shading necessary to fully enjoy the outdoor space even in Finale Ligure, where the southern exposure facing the sea of the building can lead to high temperatures during the summer days. Intervening on a historic building requires many precautions: the risk is in fact that of distorting its appearance with elements that do not fit harmoniously into the existing structures. Therefore the challenge is to combine functionality and aesthetics, and achieve a homogeneous and efficient result, even combining the modern with the old. The San Pietro (Saint Peter) Palace Hotel is the example of a perfectly successful union, which sees the numerous entrances, enriched by cornices and moldings, dating back to the 17th century, integrated with five modern T-Code armed awnings by Pratic, which, with their 420 cm in width and 150 cm in depth, perfectly adapt to the spaces of the facade. Also, elegant installations in the colors for which two shades of gray have been chosen: 986/15 for the acrylic fabric of the curtain and the iron gray for the structure. "The San Pietro (Saint Peter) Palace is housed in one of the first buildings built on the waterfront of Finale for the processing of the caught fish - says the architect Valentina Zanetti, project manager -. The choice to convert the existing building into a hotel, during the early 1900s, expresses the tourist vocation of the town. But the very characteristics, which make the façade so special, have determined the constraints for the installation plans of the shading system and its inclination. The Pratic model proved to be the optimal answer to the customer's needs ".
