The Costaguti Experience is a 16th century residence located at the epicenter of Rome’s Jewish neighborhood, just steps from the Campidoglio. The home’s noble owner, Marquess Costaguti-Afan de Rivera, decided to transform the home into an exclusive short-term rental with 5-star amenities and bespoke experiences.
The home features museum-quality frescoes by baroque masters of the 16th and 17th centuries, a billiard room, private sauna, and a master bedroom hidden among the gilded vaults of the 26ft ceilings.
Brand Management + Strategy
Marigold is a special and unique space in Rome. It’s the dream-child of Danish Baker, Sofie Wochner, and Italian Chef, Domenico Cortese, both veterans of Rome’s Sustainable Food Project, initiated and supervised by Chez Panisse’, Alice Waters. The restaurant and micro-bakery represents them, their passion and their creativity.
In response to Italy’s national lockdown, we assisted Marigold in transforming their restaurant into a delivery-only concept in less than 24 hours. To date, the delivery service recuperates an extraordinary 60-80% of daily pre-COVID level revenues and has kept all of its staff regularly employed.
Graphic Design + Production
Branding + Identity
Cascade is a serviced beachfront villa on the Turks and Caicos’ most popular island, Providenciales. The architecture of the villa gives it its name, as the structure conceals ocean-facing spaces that literally cascade down to the coastline.
We worked with the villa’s owner to design and curate a special coffee table-worthy guest guide, full of island facts and villa information, recommendations for activities and dining, as well as full spreads of wildlife, culture and landscape photography by local studio, Paradise Photography.
Brand + Content Strategy
Personalized Italy is a bespoke travel planner and tour operator based in Rome that serves elite clients from the US, UK, Asia and Australia. For over 10 years the owners have been crafting truly unique, private experiences across the peninsula to provide discerning travelers once-in-a-lifetime experiences.
Our update to their website has shown a year-over-year increase in individual tour bookings and holiday planning services. We reorganized the website’s content, created SEO-rich copy for optimal indexing by search engines, and a professional visual language to inspire users to dream about their trip to Italy.
Restaurant Concept Development
Restaurant + Kitchen Plan Layout
Xandari Resorts + Spa manages several assets in India and Costa Rica owned by the Muthoot Finance Corp. from India. Xandari Harbour is an adaptive reuse project that repurposed a limited service hotel and adjacent “Go Down” (term for a historic trade warehouse) into a boutique, luxury hotel with personality.
We provided the schematic design for the restaurant transformation in the Go Down space, from analyzing kitchen flows with an open kitchen concept, table mix and layouts for the dining room and loft areas, as well as selecting and procuring interior design materials, finishes, fixtures and furniture.
