completed, Rovinj, 2015.
Adriatic is a unique hotel with an unrepeatable ambient in which fantasy and reality interact through art and artistic interventions alongside everyday objects. The existing building was constructed in 1913 as one of the first hotels in the area and nowadays is the only hotel situated within the urban structure of Rovinj.
By a comprehensive reconstruction and a collective effort of creatives and artists gathered around 3LHDs concept, the hotel was transformed into the city's luxurious focal point. Traditional, authentic historical appearance was maintained in the exterior, while the interior, newly designed by Studio Franić Šekoranja with 3LHD, is visually lavish, eclectic and modern, classic and elegant, displaying a vast array of textures, shades and colors. The main characteristic of the interior are site-specific art installations. The entire art collection of the hotel, on disposal of guests looking for a different experience to enjoy, consists of more than hundred museum value art pieces.
In addition to preserving the heritage values of the hotel, its historical layers were interpreted in the design, and the artistic interventions created a contemporary cosmopolitan spirit. A series of interventions opened up the interior and made it more representative. Emphasis was placed on maintaining the existing staircase that leads from the first to the fourth floor. The new additional staircase from the ground floor to the rooms is set in an eccentric ratio relative to the ground floor plan with the scope of opening the public hotel amenities (caffe, brasserie) towards the town square.
Studio 3LHD is the author of the concept and the project. Interior design was created by Studio Franić/Šekoranja with 3LHD, artistic curator was Vanja Žanko, graphic designers Lana Cavar, Marino Krstačić-Furić and Ana Tomić designed the visual identity while the staff uniform design was created by Studio I-gle. Visual artists represented at hotel premises are: Abdelkader Benchamma, Jasmina Cibic, Igor Eškinja, Chris Goennawein, Kristina Lenard, Federico Luger, Charles Munka, Goran Petercol, Valentin Ruhry, SofijaSilvia, Saša Šekoranja, Massimo Uberti, Zlatan Vehabović, Žižić/Kožul.
