Roman studio RPM Proget is spearheading design for the 5-star Maalot Hotel, which is expected to open next month. The owner is an Argentine entrepreneur who also owns other hotels.
The building housing the hotel is on four floors encompassing about 3,000 square meters and looks like an elegant “palazzo” of the 19th century where, between 1828 and 1837, the great composer Gaetano Donizetti, author of operas such as the “Elisir d’amore” and “Don Pasquale,” wrote “Il Furioso di San Domingo” and “Torquato Tasso.”
The Maalot Hotel features a British style and recalls the atmospheres of an English residence from various aspects: the fabric wallcoverings, the carpet, the furnishings, the lamps, and the colors of the 30 rooms, each one different from the other. Comfort is at the core of the project, from the soft textiles to the smooth and mixed colors.
The restaurant showcases soft tones, where greens and beiges prevail, and lush plants that descend from a closed skylight. The flooring is made up of an aged oak parquet in a warm honey tone.
