the second branch to the ‘MAMA shelter‘ in marseille was designed by philippe starck and represents the idea of hospitality that is present in every culture around the world. the spaces create contemporary interpersonal and intra-personal relationships with its visitors as they experience art, furniture, and fixtures that tell an experiential story through time. the hotel consists of six floors with five diverse color schemes and 127 rooms in line with a mediterranean theme. a live stage, game area, eating establishments, several seating clusters, boutique and beach provide many spaces for family and strangers to meet and share in the simple things in life together. MAMA is more than a building, it is a lifestyle.

  • A contemporary ceiling of the Sixteen Chapel.Very creative black and white floors. Overall a good use of bright colors here and there,not too much or too little.
