Designed by the Italian architect Beatrice Bonzanigo, it is called Casa Ojalà and is the new mobile suite by Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco. Unveiled in preview in July 2021, the structure was installed among the Sangiovese rows of the property, in the Capanna vineyard, in the heart of the Val d’Orcia: “We are thrilled to collaborate with Casa Ojalá to bring this new experience to us – explains the regional vice president and managing director of Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco, Davide Bertilaccio -. Casa Ojalá offers our guests a unique and unprecedented perspective to visually understand the destination ”.
Developed with functionality and flexibility in mind, Casa Ojalá is a 27 square meter structure inspired by Jules Verne’s fictional submarine, the Nautilus. The installation is characterized by a manual crank and pulley system with movable elements like that of a classic marine boat. With over a thousand configurations that work in sync without ever changing the original form, Casa Ojalá changes the rules of the traditional structure, creating a perfect balance between freedom and stability. The materials and fittings have also been meticulously selected and designed with eco-responsibility in mind. This installation is the first step in the path of the Casa Ojalá brand, which aims at continuous expansion and mass production.
The new partnership comes in the wake of the resort’s recent reopening and property expansion, with the inauguration of 19 newly designed private suites and the renovation of the La Canonica tavern. For the first time since its opening in 2008, the Castiglion del Bosco will also remain open beyond the summer season, thus allowing travelers to book accommodation during the fall and Christmas period.
