It is always hard to find something new in resort design, and so it’s not a secret that many hotels of this category look much alike. However, architects and designers of the 86-guestroom Regent Montenegro, namely Reardon Smith and Tino Zervudachi, decided to make a step aside from the common approach and offer something new to guests of this wonderful place. Their concept could be characterised as “a step backward to move forward” the team was inspired by the period of Montenegro’s history when the country was under the rule of Venice. At that time, palazzo was a typical form of a luxury building, and their design was taken as the basis for the resort project.
Of course, bringing historical design to our time doesn’t mean complete copying as Regent Montenegro is a resort and it should provide guests with quality service. Therefore, some visual signatures were reinterpreted and some were made more contemporary and convenient. Ceilings of guestrooms were decorated with draped fabric that reminds of four-poster beds with traditional fabric on the top. The hotel’s spa got new arched ceilings that clearly reflect Italian architecture. The bar in the library looks like a Medici palace with its rich decoration and wood tones. On the other hand, guestrooms, lobby and spa are made mostly in light colors that fresh up the whole look and make it more modern, so guests will be able to relax and enjoy tranquil atmosphere of the region.
