Iliria Boutique Hotel is a 4 floors building consisted by 18 rooms. Located in the heart of central Tirana, Iliria Boutique Hotel presents a world where every guest feels welcome, a culture built on service, where people come first and find an experience tailor-made.

Before the project was commissioned to us, the building had a complicated and non-organized distribution of main functions, a crossover services and a depreciated environment. Stripping the building from any non-functional decoration, our first task in the project was to distribute the services that the hotel offered based on the possibilities that the structure of the building allows us to intervene.

The Hotel distribution

– Underground Floor – Conference Room
– Ground Floor – Hotel entry, Lobby, Reception, Serafina Bar & Restaurant
– First Floor – Meeting Room, Offices
– 18 Rooms in 3 Floors

The purpose was designing the interior by creating a tension between the rigidity of the object and the warmth of the pastel colors. In this hotel we did create an individual “Palette” of warm colors as in the materials regarding the textures, by combining the natural light to a relaxing atmosphere.


From the entrance The Lobby involve in this color game intertwined with the combination of the existing neoclassical style of the building in to retro and a contemporary design. Our Interventions have been essential, our main focus was also to refine the architectural barriers of the structure as design element in order to fulfill our purpose.

Our process was driven by the search for a way to hold on to the aspirational excitement of a hotel stay while enjoying the advantages of something more akin to a home in one's adoptive city no matter how long - or short - the stay.

During this moment, our sensitivity towards the light,elegance and minimalist design was fundamental creating the character of the space.
