Hotel in Prati - Rome (Italy)

Model realization (Rome)

DescriptionGalleryDetails


For this project, the commissioner engaged us to explore an inner city hotel solution to a derelict space between two fin de siecle ‘palazzi'. The site was much ‘deeper' than wide, which presented unique problems regarding natural light. So we decided to create two detached building volumes which enclose a courtyard that would be open to the elements. The courtyard becomes the real heart of the project; all hotel rooms are facing it. Its design has japanese elements, with a pool and hanging gardens.
