Four stars hotel in Rome
Client : 9 Hotel
Location : Rome
Schedule : Rooftop opened in june 2018 - Renovation ongoing
Area : 2000 sqm
Hotel Cesari is the oldest hotel in Rome. Naturally, we decided to view its renovation as a rendez-vous between the antique & the modern; taking classic Italian decoration & architecture then adding a contemporary twist.
Our objective was to highlight the magnificent, historic view, one of the most beautiful urban vistas in all Rome, without neglecting the re-decoration of the space itself. And, importantly, to create an area to be enjoyed all year round.
Doric columns & Venetian mirrors are placed within a space introducing Terrazo & brass against a backdrop of gold, green & ochre. A hand-painted Trompe-l'oeil is given an unexpected, subtle marble effect, contrasted against a room of deep green & gold leaf.
The central theme, an interplay between the antique & the modern, carries through into the design of the bedrooms which will have different colour schemes for each floor. Intimate & luxurious rooms for rest & contemplation exist in harmony with the hustle, bustle & architectural carnival of the city outside.
