Srdjan Prodanovic designs Villa No. 174

Srdjan Prodanovic showcased a “bohemian-designed non-conformist” new boutique hotel in Rio de Janeiro. Newly opened on top of Santa Teresa hill, Villa No. 174’s aesthetic embodies the cultural vibrancy of the neighborhood where it is located. 

Offering panoramic views of Guanabara Bay and Sugarloaf Mountain, the property has a combination of luxury accommodation with artistic innovation and contemporary design, without losing the old mansion's original charm. Situated in the heart of a tropical garden, four studio spaces have Prodanovic's designs.

Across the four studios, there are hints of Art Deco and colonial design, as well as influences from nature in the form of plant motifs. These spaces harmonize the old and the new, with bursts of colors set off against antique armchairs, re-upholstered with fine Italian fabrics.

Hotel Optimization Part 3 | January 27, 2021

With 2020 behind us and widespread vaccine distribution on the horizon, the second half of the new year is looking up, but for Q1 (and most likely well into Q2) we’re very much still in the thick of what has undeniably been the lowest point of the pandemic. What can you be doing now to power through and set yourself up for a prosperous 2021 and beyond? Join us at Part 3 of Hotel Optimization – A Virtual Event on January 27 from 10am – 1:05pm ET for expert panels focused on getting you back to profitability.

Prodanovic's design also allows for the expression of many artistic disciplines, with the hotel serving as an informal exhibition space for painters and sculptors alike. Contemporary paintings - custom-made by Bosnian painter Radmila Djapic Jovandic - adorn the walls throughout the hotel, and in the near future, one exterior wall of the hotel will be covered with the creations of graffiti artists, adding another contemporary and somewhat urban slant to this project.

All materials throughout the evolution of the project were sourced from within Brazil.
