Bringing modernity to the five-star hotel culture: new architecture comes to life in Rome combining history and creativity with auteur design.
The Pantheon Iconic Rome Hotel offers a design solution that creates the best environment for welcoming guests from the five continents, desirous of being charmed by the “spirit” of Rome.
The new hotel is part of Unica Collection, which chose to collaborate with the “The Autograph Collection” brand – the Marriott group’s exclusive portfolio of upscale hotels.
The interior design proposed by Studio Marco Piva enhance the quality of the renovated building and its interiors in relation to the exterior.
Matter is paramount and creates perceptively surprising spaces, giving them a specific weight.
79 rooms with contemporary and custom design, with a specific identity, through different chromatic choices: mini-apartments with the functionalities and services of a luxury hotel, to make guests feel as if they are living in an elegant, noble Roman palace.
Two restaurants and lounge bars – On the ground floor, the esclusive Dionysus Gourmet Restaurant (opening on January 2019), and a lounge bar, and on the sixth floor the Divinity Restaurant and the Divinity Terrace Lounge Bar, with their breathtaking overview of the city of Rome.
Common Areas – A perspective of bronze arches and white gypsum vaults, reflected in the glossy black, Sahara Noir stoneware floors, welcomes the guest when entering the hotel. Ceilings have visual, led-lit centres recalling the Pantheon Oculus. Reception and lobby desks are sculptural Calacatta-gold marble monoliths that seem to float in a shiny black lake.
The project revolves around the idea of Rome offering its monuments and history in a contemporary, highly emotional way.
