Today part of the LVMH Group, Bulgari was founded in Rome in 1884 as a single jewellery shop and progressively imposed itself with its magnificent jewellery creations, emblems of the Italian excellence.
The new development, pay tribute to Bulgari’s silversmith origins and Britain’s noble manufacturing traditions with an understated, elegant design concept with silver forming the underlying theme of the design. The sleek architecture and refined interiors, designed by Antonio Citterio, Patricia Viel and Partners, marry the Bulgari glamour and heritage with sustainable design features and state of the art technology.
Many of the furnishings and textiles throughout the hotel and residences were made exclusively for Bulgari crafted by Italian manufacturers.
