The new Scarpetta at Waldorf Astoria Lusail Doha is designed by David Collins Studio, who put their heart and soul into reinterpreting traditional Italianate architectural details with a mid-century twist. The design features a contemporary interpretation of Italian architecture, through use of Palladiana flooring, coloured marbles, and travertine columns influenced by the brand’s Italian cuisine.
