Grand Hotel Dino is a 4-star resort located in Baveno on the shores of Lake Maggiore, in the province of Verbania. A historic hotel offering its guests three restaurants, two cafés, a convention centre, a wide park and a stunning view on the lake and on the Borromean Islands.
Zacchera Hotels – Grand Hotel Dino’s owners – contacted KE dealer Comazzi Tende for a design consulting, with the necessity of installing sun awnings able to shelter their large outdoor area and, at the same time, to fit Grand Hotel Dino’s architectural context in the best possible way.
With the support of KE Area Manager Enrico Colombo, a series of tests with different types of samples was performed and the final choice fell on DOMINA by KE, a cassette sun awning standing out for its modern lines. The project was developed by dealer Comazzi Tende in cooperation with Tartaglione company, who created an iron structure to anchor DOMINA awnings.
These 24 DOMINA awnings are all motorised with Somfy IO automation technology so as to set up – in addition to end limits – also the ideal position to shelter the outdoor area without blocking the breathtaking view on the lake. In case of bad weather or strong winds, the awnings close automatically thanks to wind sensors installed on their perimeters.
The owners were extremely satisfied with the results obtained, both for the quality of the awnings and for the aesthetic outcome, perfectly in line with Grand Hotel Dino’s style.
