Built in 1928 by architect Félix Hernández, the Palace of the Counts of Colomera has been one of the most renowned private buildings in Córdoba, Spain for nearly a century.

Placed in Plaza de las Tendillas, this imposing four-story building surmounted by two Borrominesque-inspired towers was bought in 2016 by H10 to be converted into a luxury 4-star hotel.

The renovation was led by architect D. Francisco Paniagua, with Ventanas HC tasked to supply over 90 windows for the entire building. The goal was to preserve the spirit of the palace, while also providing state-of-the-art performance and energy efficiency.

With the focus on thermal and acoustic insulation, as well as the minimal aesthetics required to let the historical character of the hotel shine through, the Giesse concealed hardware range was selected. This included the CHIC high-performance concealed hinge system for tilt-and-turn aluminium windows up to 150kg in weight where the hinges completely disappear into the frame. When paired with the revolutionary NP Ultra handle, the result is a truly minimal look. A quietly impactful piece of modern design in a historic environment.
