Metropolitan Hotel

Hospitality, Terrace, Bologna, 2015
If you take the lift in the Hotel Metropolitan in Bologna, you are immediately transported from the labyrinth of narrow medieval roads to an open hanging garden on the roofs. Evergreen bay hedges envelop and protect the solarium area, Acers, Abelias and jasmines flank the pergola which features a flexible furnished area: for breakfast, lunch, lounge. A green roof amongst red roofs.
