David Collins Studio has designed the first Scarpetta restaurant in the Middle East, at the new Waldorf Astoria Hotel Lusail. Taking reference from the brand’s Italian cuisine, the new Scarpetta restaurant features a contemporary interpretation of Italian architecture, through the use of Palladiana flooring, coloured marbles and travertine columns. The design draws inspiration from the work of twentieth century Italian architect Carlo Scarpa, renowned for his reinterpretation of ancient Italian public buildings. Traditional Italianate architectural details are updated with a mid-century twist. The resulting restaurant, bar and terrace have a sense of relaxed luxury and occasion, set within a newly built hotel by WATG Architects.
Tailored elegance, Italian craft and mid-century charm, bringing the relaxed yet refined ambience of Scarpetta to Doha. Towering travertine, shimmering timbers, sumptuous leathers, and nostalgic lighting .... capture Italian incantesimo.
