palette allows the team to play with decadent shapes
and textures without visual overkill. Painted, paneled
walls and soft drapes reinforce the aristocratic
elegance of the architecture. The separate desk and
table (no eating while you work here) each have their
own vibe. Integrating the desk into a display piece
gives workers some much-needed visual distraction. 

twice: this was the first renovation of
One Aldwych since it opened as one of
London's coolest hotels two decades ago.
THE MAGIC: At a time when lower-pricepoint properties regard guestrooms as "a
place to sleep," the design here focuses
on making each room a space that could
function as a 24/7 hangout. "This is,
essentially, a small apartment with every

BELMOND CAP JULUCA

MAUNDAYS BAY, ANGUILLA
THE DESIGN FIRM: Rottet Studio, New York
THE MUSE: Pay tribute to the British Colonial
history of the island and immerse the guest in a
luxurious story specific to the resort. Find modern
ways to echo the mix of domestic and imported
materials used when the island was first settled to
capture the spirit of the Caribbean.  
THE MAGIC: Lauren Rottet, founding principal and

president, Rottet Studio, and her team took a deep
technical look at the how of the materials that would

MYSTERY HOTEL
BUDAPEST

THE DESIGN FIRM: Varrodesign, Budapest
THE MUSE: Balance the best of European opulence and historically-accented
glamour with the quirkiest of hot takes on
iconic artworks.
THE MAGIC: There's a bunch of different
room types (hello, old building problems).
Instead of just swapping out the artwork in
a prototypical space, there are completely
distinct design narratives for each one. Gray
floral drapery accents one room; exposed
brick and dark blue and gold define another.

authentic atmosphere with modern touches and
amenities. "A curated collection of chairs showcases
traditional weaving styles typically associated with
tropical furniture. These historically appropriate
techniques include handmade caning, braided abaca
rope, hand-woven rush and sea grass, and a mixture
of palm rattan, teak root and mahogany frames," she
says. It also helps that these materials are designed
for warm, humid climates, so they can easily withstand the contraction/expansion cycle of materials
under extreme volatile conditions.
THE MAVERICK MOVE: Tropical warmth is great
and all, but even in a resort setting, guests don't want
to soak up the rays all the time. Changing the floors
from white to three shades of dark charcoal gray helps
guests relax when they're away from the sun outside.

THE MESSAGE: Updating an icon will never be a
blank slate. It also doesn't have to be a recreation.

THE MESSAGE: Think outside the box, even when
you're renovating a project. Quiet considerations such
as hiding USB outlets in the millwork still count toward
the guest experience without sacrificing the design.

THE MAVERICK MOVE: Precise control on the
balance of tongue-in-cheek versus Instagramworthy cool means these spaces fall on the right side
of compelling, not cheesy. "We rethought old paintings and added some 'miracle' to it," says Zoltán
Varró, founder of his eponymous firm. "This is how
Mona Lisa got to be a guest at one of Hungary's
biggest outdoor festivals."  Yes, she has sunglasses.
THE MESSAGE: A touch of punk belongs in high
fashion. In design, off-kilter pieces-check the
easel holding a TV or the bathtub in a nook off the
bedroom-keep the cheekiness at the forefront.
