Once a clinic on the road from Fiesole to Florence, today an extra luxurious building with its own Botanic Garden, which has maintained its original structure.
This is the ideal location for Simas’s Arcade collection, as part of the redevelopment of the Leonardo apartment by Architect Tecla Elvira Magugliani, which is part of the greater conservation project headed by Paolo Portoghesi.
In fact, the ‘cross pollination’ of styles means that this evergreen fits in perfectly with the minimal-refined setting. The residence has retained its original Liberty style even in the bathrooms for the guest bedrooms on the mezzanine floor, one of which houses a column washbasin and sanitary ware from the Arcade line - cutting-edge classical, with a hint of the ‘antique’ that stands the test of time with its absolute elegance, robustness and reliability.
A 1986 collection that time has not marred. It is by no mere chance that it is still Simas’s top selling line. To balance the beauty of yesteryear with the real world of today.
