Set over 800 square-meters, the two level luxury boutique is an amalgamation of Dolce and Gabbana‘s house codes and details inspired by the city. Home to the seven wonders, 59 columns are installed throughout the store’s 11 interior spaces, a unifying element that pays tribute to Rome’s immense architectural and engineering achievements.

Upon entering, visitors are drawn into a grand room spanning 22 meters with a 6 meter high ceiling. The space is capped with two skylight domes, each lined in gradating coloured rings of handmade stone mosaics. Echoing the opulent 16th century Palazzo Romano each space is designed as a modern palatial room of stone, colour and light.

Bringing the store and it’s honouring of styles past into the modern day, a contemporary take on baroque digitally transforms Paul Troger’s 18th century ceiling fresco to decorate a linear gallery on the upper floor. The digital installation is inspired by the Vatican’s Sistine Chapel.
