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. In 1853, a fortress was built on  the island to protect the bay – now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Today, this incredible  location is a place to come visit and discover for yourself. The extraordinary structure of the  original fort was the perfect springboard for us to create a new story for Mamula Island. In designing the interiors for the new hotel on the island, our 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.

Throughout the design development process we looked to a variety of cultural references to  create a modern reinterpretation of a retreat. Inspiration ranged from the heritage of local  artisanal trades (such as pottery and traditional furniture joinery techniques) to minimalist mid century style and abstract fine art. These influences combined to create a distinct design  language: sophistication and refinement interlaced with both the vernacular and a respect for  the unique character of the island. Likewise, the chosen materials draw from tradition whilst  staying universally modern and durable: think natural stone, aged brass, solid oak and  breathable, organic textiles.

The prevalent motif of the original fort structure is the arch – a  symbol of both strength and support but also renewal and openness. In ancient mythology,  arches and doorways were seen as thresholds between time and space, and in more modern  times as symbols of the expansiveness of the sky. In our desire to create an immersive  experience for the guests of Mamula Island, the recurring archways of the fort are recreated  throughout the interior spaces. Additionally, the arch motif was the starting point for our custom  made geometrical furniture line used throughout the hotel.

On Mamula Island, our holistic approach to the interior design embraces both the natural  landscape and the original 19th century fort. It is a place of sustainable luxury, where objects  age beautifully as they develop more and more character over time. Harnessing the  contemplative atmosphere resonating from the island, our intent was to create a place of  wonder! Where each and every guest can take their own journey to discovering what this  remarkable place can offer to them.
