Hotel Basiliani or, as the name could be translated, the Brazilian Hotel, is located in Matera, Italy. It has a very elegant design, both inside and out. The construction and the project were completed in 2010. This would make this a modern hotel. However, a style is not always defined by time. In this case, the hotel features a very beautiful combination of both contemporary and ancient features.
The reason why we find here this unusual and contrasting combination of style is because the hotel was actually a recovery project. The historic building has been transformed and redesigned in order to become what it is today. Of course, there are still traces of the old design. It’s the reason why the hotel features this combination of styles. You can see how they are combined and how elements balance each other. Despite the strong contrasts of styles that can be seen throughout the hotel and in every room, the overall décor is cohesive.
