Hotel Room Mate Giulia

DWA Design Studio as collaborating Interior designers

The hotel, designed by Patricia Urquiola in collaboration with Frederik De Wachter and Alberto Artesani of DWA Design Studio, is located in the heart of Milan, a few steps from Piazza del Duomo and the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele, features 85 rooms divided into 5 categories (standard, superior, deluxe, junior suite and penthouse with terrace). In addition, customers can enjoy innovative services such as breakfast until noon or WiMate, Wi‐Fi not only in the hotel but all around the city, among others. Room Mate Giulia combines the essence of Milan; it’s new, fresh, fun and welcoming. The hotel reflects the city through its colors, materials, images, irony, the mix of different languages and also its rigour, all with the most intimate accuracy. Room Mate Giulia has a great personality and promises guests a unique experience in Milan.

Room Mate Giulia indeed has a great connection with the city of Milan in the use of materials and elements. The hotel lobby floor is made of pink marble, the same used in the Duomo of Milan, following the line of the latest projects of the architect. The predominance of this color in her work has become one of her hallmarks. Terracotta bricks, another typical feature in the Milanese architecture, are used on a curved wall in the lobby to create a tridimensional effect. The recurrent geometric patterns reflect the rigour of the city and also refer to the graphic arts, an important element of the cultural history of Milan.

The rooms refer to typical Italian domestic spaces with a vintage touch. The goal is to create an essential and very familiar space where guests find everything they need to live temporarily in the rooms as if they were at home. And all through areas of the hotel you can admire works of different artists, photographers and illustrators with a common denominator: they are “Milanesi”.

Cassina Contract has managed the entire fit out of the hotel producing made to measure beds, tables, sofas, desks, cabinets, furniture for the bathrooms, mirrors and curtains with the high quality that characterizes the company.
