Hotel Design Award 2024

Congratulations to the Rome EDITION for winning the Hotel Design Award 2024!

Rigor, essentiality and linearity are the guidelines of both the public and the private spaces of The Rome Edition. Both in the spatial organization and in the choice of materials, a soft and non-invasive approach emphasizes the original architectural identity. With spectacular 7 meter high ceilings, the use of travertine, bronze and teak, accentuating fabrics and a lush courtyard/restaurant with over 400 plants and a cascade of greenery on the façade, the hotel unfolds like the acts in an opera.
