Would You Let Giorgio Armani Design Your Home?

Italian designer Giorgio Armani’s home division is going to deck out the interior of exclusive apartments in Rome, as part of a project to convert a historical building into a complex of luxury serviced flats. Some 62 apartments are planned which is composed of six linked buildings surrounding a garden.

You’ll get to offer your opinion; each flat will have its own specific ground plan but will be finalized and furnished according to your personal tastes.

Owners will also enjoy a personal concierge service, available 365 days a year, to help out with maintenance, babysitting, restaurant reservations, theater tickets as well as travel arrangements.

“The scheme was conceived from the desire to transform the ancient buildings of a quarter on the slopes of the Palatine Hill into a prestigious, sophisticated, cutting-edge residential complex,” Armani said in a statement. The apartments will be ready for occupancy next year.
