Our hotel is just three minutes from the Barcelona Cathedral and five from the Rambla and Plaça Catalunya, in the heart of the Gothic Quarter. In each of the 74 rooms, a dialogue takes place among the various spaces and materials. The sleeping area, with wooden floors and white walls and bed linens, counters and blends into the black walls and floor of the bathroom, where the only thing that stands out is the shine of the fixtures and mirrors.
The project, which Daniel Isern created in his time at ABAA studio, was born out of the architect’s commitment to the building and what it represents. Each element, each corner, each piece of furniture, could tell its own story. The most significant is the one that has led it to be known in the city as “the hotel with eyes”, thanks to the work by Frederic Amat on the façade: one thousand pins topped with pupils looking out over the city. But the hotel is much more than one piece of art...
“Maintaining dialogue with such a significant piece of art, the whole building is a quiet balance of light and shadow. Each room gives guests the best view on offer from such a special location. At the same time, the other spaces, from the rooftop terrace to the ground-floor restaurants, have all been designed as if an exercise in stage design. They feature top-quality materials and exquisite lighting, which all come together to make moving through them natural, fluid.”
