The hotel's reception is discreetly positioned on the initial access level yet remains peripheral. This area is designed with vibrant and artisanal ceramics composed of three-dimensional pieces specially crafted for the project. The aim is to establish a dialogue with the bar counter while capturing the freshness and greenery of Montjuic Park.
The platforms create undulating paths around the new circular Bar, which becomes a node of centripetal energy, almost like a new roundabout that engages with Plaza de España. With its prominent formal presence and visible position from the entrance, the Bar becomes the focal point that invites visitors to enter. The materiality in this area seeks to recreate the ambiance of a garden, with warm wooden ceilings resembling treetops. A natural and neutral colour palette accentuates the vibrant green of the ceramic Bar.
As we venture further into the project, we reach the top level, where we are greeted by a spacious area bathed in intense natural light, thanks to its new translucent greenhouse-like roof.
Underneath this radiant Mediterranean light, we have created a true garden within the city. Large planters fill the space with greenery and freshness. Their organic shapes serve as benches, creating undulating pathways and even a small, elevated stage.
Through this careful arrangement, diverse areas and intimate corners are crafted for seating, each ideally suited for specific occasions or times of the day.
