Vyta Santa Margherita
VyTA Santa Margherita is located in the former first class waiting room of the Santa Maria Novella train station in Florence (Italy), a masterpiece of rationalist Italian architecture. The protection of the listed building of Santa Maria Novella train station was a considerable challenge for the design of VyTA. The new characteristic elements, which are realized with fine materials such as copper, glass, and marble, interface with the existing historic features.
