The Hoxton, Rome
Sistemazione a verde di un hotel a Roma
Location Rome, Italy
Description A few steps away from Villa Borghese in Rome's Pinciano neighbourhood, The Hoxton chain is opening its first hotel in the capital. The design studios Ennismore and Fettle have completely renovated an austere and silent 1960s building, transforming it into a welcoming and dynamic hub for both neighbourhood and city life.
Within this renovation, the challenge emerges with the request for an important plant presence on all levels. An unused pavement becomes a Food & Beverage terrace overrun with greenery; a small service cloister becomes a roof garden that can be admired from every room. The balconies of the eight floors are bordered by a single species of fragrant rosemary that is a surprising match for the starkness of the facade.
In the indoor spaces, highly varied containers with sumptuous plants share and strengthen the cheerful and informal character of the furnishings.
