Designed by Reardon Smith Architects, the Regent Hotel in Porto Montenegro is inspired by the exquisite houses that sit beside the region’s Adriatic coastline. Clad in Montenegrin stone and topped with terracotta roof tiles, Reardon Smith have created an authentic looking building in the heart of one of Montenegro’s most beautiful landscapes.
One of the key architectural aims of this development was to create connections between the building design and the natural landscape. It was essential that Allgood provided an ironmongery package that was tailored to the building’s architectural design, whilst contributing to the elegance and prestige of the hotel.
Working with Milinaric, Henry & Zervudachi, the interior designer on the project, Allgood soon determined that a variety of finishes would be required due to the ever changing interior aesthetic of each room. Furthermore, a large number of bespoke items were created for the hotel. In the guestrooms, custom-made sliding door flush pulls were manufactured with an antique brass finish on the exterior plate and a chrome finish on the flush pull interior. In the apartments however, edge pull handles, door chains and concealed hinges were supplied in a bronze finish to complement the different aesthetic in these rooms.
Whilst this project was technically complicated, Allgood formed an ironmongery package that complemented the natural charm of the building and it’s surroundings, allowing the interior designer to leave a unique aesthetic mark on the project.
