A new luxury destination born on the ‘American Riviera’, a tribute to the glamorous new era emerging in downtown Santa Barbara...
Prehistoric cave turned into a luxury hotel
It's amazing how people could have thought amazing places in which to live...
Or they sign in them. Italians are known as a nation with innate propensity to provide quality design. Although Rome was not built in a day, the Italians really know what they're doing when it comes to the design or construction. They are simply brilliant.
Therefore, on the basis of this, we are not at all surprised by the idea of two Italians, which is definitely the best vision of this century - they have turned a cave in which our ancestors lived a millennium ago into a luxury hotel.
La dimora di Metello in Matera, in southern Italy, gets a touch of architectural team consisting of brother and sister, Alfredo and Marina, from Manca studio. They have renovated this space and in it have built something unique that would attract attention from anyone.
This hotel has only four suites, common area and spa. There is also an abundance of light, in order to avoid the feeling of claustrophobia. The walls of the hotel have some curves we can see in the volcanic rocks, where the rustic and eclectic design elements in this combination are simply spectacular. This hotel is definitely on our list of places we have to visit at least once.
