Architecture & Design
It can take ages to assemble the right group of innovators to design something unique – especially when they live 500 years apart.
The stage for our unique hotel began in Ottoman times when, stone by massive stone, the city's magnificent walls and Jaffa Gate were built. Several generations had to pass until, in front of these famous fortifications, a bustling neighborhood began to flourish, known to locals as Mamilla.
Enter one of Israel's most well-known architects, Moshe Safdie. Seeking the ideal location to weave the capital's colourful threads together, he chose the Mamilla neighbourhood, where the timeless beauty of the ancient city meet the excitement of today's Jerusalem. The Mamilla Hotel is the cornerstone of this grand architectural vision, uniting Old City and new.
Finally, renowned designer Pierro Lissoni was invited to create one-of-a-kind interiors, echoing the magnificent architecture of classical Jerusalem, and the best of the capitol's new materials and energy. Like the city itself, the architecture of the Mamilla brings together styles and centuries, resulting in a designer hotel like no other.
