Set within the Renaissance architecture and the contemporary structures of the vibrant and historic Regola neighbourhood, Chapter Roma brings change in Italian travel, providing an accessibility to luxury that is not just saved for five-star hotels.
Embodying a true fusion of gritty and glamorous, with a contemporary and classic aesthetic, South African based designer Tristan Du Plessis of Studio A has breathed new life into the building which dates back to 1880.
Chapter Roma’s laidback yet spirited vision in contemporary interiors brings Du Plessis’ signature industrial-chic, sultry style and strong local connection to this ancient cosmopolis.
Du Plessis employs elements of raw steel, brass, copper and bronze, adding an industrial touch to an elegant space with high ceilings, herringbone floors, and mid-century Italian furniture. The dramatic setup is rounded off nicely using a palette of dark green and rust with soft-to-the-touch velvets.
Inspired by the streets of Rome along with the neighbourhood’s cutting-edge galleries and furniture boutiques, a contemporary artwork by CYRCLE, a two-man collective made up of American artists David Leavitt and David Torres, as well as graffiti by local artist Alice Pasquini grace the walls of the Chapter Roma’s lobby bar.
The guest rooms are centered on a few statement pieces in otherwise minimalistic spaces with clever custom-made vanity-cum-storage solutions.
Artwork at Chapter Roma abounds, with rooms featuring handmade pieces, velvet textures coupled with metal furniture pieces, lighting by Bert Frank, Buster and Punch fixtures, Lush Seletti rugs, and a warm antique wooden floor. The bathrooms feature granite marble flooring and cement walls coupled with brass fixtures.
Cool metal furnishings also contrast with warm wooden floors to stunning effect.
If you dream of the Pacific Ocean, the beaches of Acapulco and the scents of Puerto Escondido, Hey Güey is the terrace you were looking for. Set like a gem in the heart of the capital, it was born from the desire to let our guests travel and make them experience a precious slice of Mexico overlooking the Roman roofs and domes. An oasis immersed in a subtropical garden, among cactus flowers and figs of ‘India”. With signature tacos and fresh summer cocktails, Hey Güey will be your holiday at your fingertips.
THE LOBBY BAR
Where locals and travellers mingle, hang out, and work around some hot and cold drinks. Great coffees, juices and smoothies during the day makes way for mixology and signature wine & spirits in the evening. No one day is the same in the Chapter Lobby Bar as you get to mix it up, working at the big communal table, sitting at the bar or taking it easier in velvet sofas.
