In the elegant Prati neighbourhood, a short walk from the centre of Rome, we designed the interiors of two modern, comfortable apartments in a 20th-century building, adding them to the MMF-2015 DESIGN NETWORK in the tourist accommodation category.
The first B&B apartment of the MMF-2015 WELCOME Rome @ iRome Suites joins the early 20th-century architectural style of the building with the contemporary design of Lago furniture, creating a contrast that fills the space with personality. In order to make the most out of the space, rendering it stimulating in every detail, we played with the finishes for the various furnishings: extra-clear tempered glass to support the furniture and coloured glass to lend depth to the space, old oak to add a touch of warmth and hand-painted tile interpreted in an innovative new way for the kitchen. Natural light enters from two large windows that look out on a private interior courtyard, rendering the spaces fluid, bright and ever-changing over the arc of the day, all in dialogue with the frescoed ceiling, creating a lively, but at the same time airy, setting.
The second design-driven B&B was instead designed to balance two different times, creating a stimulating dialogue between old and contemporary furnishings. The space is divided into a living room with a sofa bed, a kitchen large enough to host a dining table and two bedrooms with bath. The contemporary furnishings, like the suspended Fluttua bed and the Wildwood Depth washbasin, harmoniously co-exist with old furnishings, for an elegant, timeless contrast that also aims to surprise the B&B’s guests.
The MMF-2015 WELCOME Roma @ iRome Suites apartments are perfect for those looking for design-driven accommodation in the heart of the capital, a short walk from the most important spots in the city. Come discover and experience Lago design at this new location in the MMF-2015 DESIGN NETWORK.
