Best wishes to all of you for a serene, healthy, and remarkable 2012.
We are now two months into our meticulous restoration – two months which have seen the careful dismantling, preparation, and transferral of each and every precious antique, mirror, and piece of artwork for storage, as well as the initial demolition works on the public areas of ground floor.
During the first week of this new year, activities have again concentrated on the excavation of the ground floor areas to allow for the installation of the floating concrete basin, on the ground floor back areas, and on the systems dismantling which is now almost complete. A particularity of the ground floor once The Gritti Palace reopens is that there will be no steps separating the public salons on the ground floor. This will make the entire area completely accessible to guests with mobility impairments.
Demolition of the ceilings, partitions, plaster and flooring on the guestroom floors also commenced in this first week of the year. We hope you will enjoy the slideshow from this past week’s activities – you may even recognise your favourite room!
