The “green room” project originates from architect Daniele Menichini’s eco-sustainable and eco-friendly approach to the projects he develops for the horeca sector, as well as for other client areas.
Each concept is developed by means of a search for solutions and products that have the least possible environmental impact and maximum energy saving – a philosophy that does not preclude elements of development, innovation and technology.

Mill Kopácsy is located at the most beautiful area of Veszprém, in the valley of stream Séd.
1.The history of the building’s architecture
Where the current mill takes its place there probably had been one already in the middle ages.
The first report that proves the earliest existence of the mill is from 1765, which we found in the protocol of the city, Veszprém. There is also a note about the building in a fifteen years younger map. We also know that its name was already Kopácsy in the 1830’s, and that it had three water-wheels. There is also a map from 1857 which contains the mill, but the L figured building does not have yet some parts we know nowadays, because they were built later on. In the 1950s the building was socialized and private homes were settled in the main building and the outhouses as well. Then, in the 1980’s, the building was used as a tailoring and as a locker. Because the appliances were heavy, the wooden frame was enforced with steel, so that it became strong enough. After the tailoring had been given up the building was standing being empty and rusty for a pretty long term.
The building’s frontage which faces the street is classicist. The other fronts of it are simple plastered walls, with some scattered windows on them, and the building has the signs that it was rebuilt more times.

The new hotel style
Primitive humans were using caves, dark and not comfortable places, but there they could find shelter from the cold and from the wild animals. In the civilization ages they invented the tent, real light and easy transportable shelter, so they could move whenever they want. The tent was also not so comfortable, so over the years, humans started to have sedentary lifestyle. They built their stone and brick houses, which were very comfortable, but they lost their ability to move and to be free. Human population increased and had less and less space for their houses; that’s why they invented at first blocks and then skyscrapers, they were trying to gain space in height, until their homes reach the sky.
This is the current!
… and tomorrow?

Located near Syntagma Square, the central square of Athens, adjacent to The Parliament House and at the foot of the Parthenon, this seven (7) storey building was built in the early 1960s and started life as an office building with retail showroom on the ground floor. The site was bought in its entirety and converted to a boutique hotel in response to the shortage of hotel rooms and the growing need for quality affordable holiday accommodation in central Athens.
The brief required interior architecture, interior design, interior decorating, styling and restoration capabilities.

“Just like the other European capitals such as Rome, Venice, or Barcelona, Paris risks to become a city museum. The increase of tourists in the French Capital causes panic and also leads to a gradual decentralization from the Parisians.
Paris has the largest concentration in m² of museums in the world, nearly 120 museums in total, with many urban areas which tend to be transformed into living conservatories.

A new world-class hotel and conference/expo center has been proposed for the upcoming 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
The Silver Pearl Hotel calls for a 1000 plus room luxury property to be located 1 ½ kilometer off shore near Doha. The name of the hotel refers to a structure that will literally rise out of the sea to recall the country’s seafaring and pearl diving history.
New York based architectural firm M. Castedo Architects designed the complex along with a team of world renowned engineering firms. Pending approval, the project would be developed by Katara Hospitality, the premier Qatar hotel developer and operator.
