French architect Jean Nouvel designs The Rooms of Rome

The Rooms of Rome opened in one of the most historical parts of the city. Designed and furnished by architect Jean Nouvel, the 24 apartments are located in a historic palace conceived by Fondazione Alda Fendi – Esperimenti. The Rooms of Rome is a new project of Kike Sarasola, which is also managing the property.

In the design of the property, Jean Nouvel imagined the apartments not just as living spaces but also constituting "openable" areas, steel boxes that reproduce environments and services such as kitchens, bathrooms or cabinets, designed and patented only for the rhinoceros building.

From each window of the apartments, which develop on four floors, there are views of the monuments of the Forum Boarium, including The Arch of Janus, church of San Giorgio al Velabro, temple of Hercules Victor (known as the Temple of Vesta) and the Palatine Hill.

Located at the fifth and sixth floors of the palazzo rhinoceros and connected to the exhibition gallery spaces of the Fondazione Alda Fendi - Esperimenti is Caviar Kaspia Roma, a Russian-inspired dining venue. The location features three panoramic terraces overlooking Imperial Rome, while the interiors also have large windows that overlook the Forum and rectangular mirrors placed along the entire length of the wall so guests can always enjoy the outside views.
