Hong Kong – Langham Hospitality Group officially breaks ground on The Langham Venice, marking the regeneration of the historic former Casino Mocenigo building and Murano glass factory into the finest resort in Venice which will open in 2026.
The Langham, Venice will blend modern luxury with authentic Venetian heritage in an intelligent renewal project that will become a new heritage landmark. Set directly on the Venetian laguna on the island of Murano, which is famed for its centuries-old tradition of glassmaking, the 133-room hotel including 30 suites, will see award-winning Italian architects Matteo Thun & Partners, restore the 16th Century casino original frescoes as well as the redevelopment of the 20th Century industrial glass factory buildings into a resort complex that speaks to Venice’s historic reputation as la Serenissima (the most sublime).
Brett Butcher, Chief Executive Officer of Langham Hospitality Group said: “The Langham, Venice is an integral part of Langham Hospitality Group’s global strategic expansion. The ground-breaking transitions from concept to creation rein reinforce the commitment to bring to life the iconic Langham signatures in one of Europe’s most important cultural hubs.”
Elisa Vago, Partner in charge of the project, Matteo Thun & Partner said: “When we were asked by Langham Hospitality Group to submit our vision for a luxury resort in Murano, we were enthused by the unique opportunity to return historical buildings to their past glory and provide an extraordinary destination for the cultured, the curious and fun-loving visitors seeking to experience the authentic Venice.”
Guests will be able to indulge in The Langham’s timeless signature traditions that will add a new dimension to the local dining scene. These include the exquisite afternoon tea which will honor a tradition that originated at The Langham, London in 1865. The resort will also include a private cooking school offering inspiration to guests seeking to take home a creative slice of Venice.
The restored buildings will wrap around a central private courtyard with a pool, a rarely available feature in Venice, to form the heart of the resort. The architects have thoughtfully designed an immersive private lawned garden of tranquility. The inviting 20 meter pool forms the centerpiece of the garden – artistically designed for swimming and leisure during the day and transformed at night with lighting & reflection into sculptural waterbody for evening cocktails.
With its breathtaking views, its splendid façade on the laguna, and its exclusive courtyard garden, The Langham Venice will create an homage to Venetian culture and a new haven of luxury hospitality.
