Mamula Island

Rising out of the Adriatic Sea off the northwestern coast of Montenegro, Mamula Island cuts a striking figure against the rich blue waters of the Bay of Kotor. Used once as a wartime jail, one of the goals of the project is to make the Island accessible to visitors – locally and internationally – to aid commemoration and give this remarkable place a more positive future. The extraordinary structure of the original fort was the perfect springboard for the studio to create a new story for Mamula Island. In designing the interiors for the new hotel on the island, the goal was the creation of a space where the approach is a completely holistic one: The interior architectural components, the bespoke furniture and the tactile elements all come together to form an environment where every guest can feel connected to the place.
