Hotels, reception rooms, spas and function rooms: we design spaces where people can meet and share emotions. Places where the memories to come are built: anticipations of memories.
We seek to design spaces which are about sharing our time, our desires and our knowledge.
We design these spaces around people, thinking both of the guest and of those who work there; of those who work behind the scenes, feeding the life of the hotel with their expertise and professionalism.
Understanding and interpreting this movement of people is part of our way of how we approach a design project, in order to create environments that are not only beautiful and evocative, but also functional and efficient.
Ceccaroli Architettura was founded in Rome in 1999 and stems from Marcello Ceccaroli’s passion for architecture and the belief that it should be mindful of people and take them into account.
A talent for free hand drawing was the starting point for a personal and then a professional journey that led the architect to explore contexts in which the design project takes shape around what people need.
Years of study, work and professional development bring a new sense of discovery with a move into hotel contract design, and Marcello Ceccaroli then decides to focus on creating spaces for the hospitality sector. A team of architects was then formed specialising in hospitality design spaces and now, more than twenty years later, this team has put its name to the creation of 90 high-end hotels and restaurants.
“Every summer I like travelling the world with my family.
We always visit the most interesting hotels in the cities we go to, suitcase in hand.
It’s my way of keeping up with things, discovering what’s new in design and sating my curiosity. It’s part of what I do for living and, I can’t deny, it’s part of me too.”
At the heart of the Ceccaroli Architettura creative process is an interest in how a design becomes a design, combined with a continuous exploration of technical, formal and material solutions that can strengthen the functionality of a space.
Approaching design in this way produces eclectic spaces that are able to interpret a sense of the contemporary while combining hints of the past and of the future.
Mindful also of what goes on behind the scenes, not just what takes place centre stage, the studio focuses on the invisible areas of the design project too, which are just as important as aesthetics in determining how successful the space is.
Hotel architecture therefore is not merely about creating fabulous spectacular public spaces, it also means designing the hidden, but vital, part of a structure.
An awareness of what the people who work there really need is crucial if you want to create this connective fabric, with skilful understanding how to analyse the flow, the rhythm and the operational distribution of the activity that goes on within.
This is where Ceccaroli Architettura works closely with the client, providing strategic consulting in order to gain an in-depth understanding of operational and functional needs.
The general lay-out of the hotel is then developed and the studio works on every type of space and requirement, with no outsourcing. This includes all areas from lighting design to green spaces, and from interiors to landscaping.
