The refurbishment of the former Hotel Vueling in Barcelona was taken on for Catalonia Hotels.
The hotel, which had been completely designed and customized for the airline, was to become a hotel without a theme on Barcelona’s Gran Vía.
Although there was no theme, the team sought out a line that would fit in with the cityscape in which the hotel was located, namely, right in the middle of the Eixample district.
Looking at the building’s façade and, above all, the lintel over the main door, the first thing that came to mind was a slightly French style but with a casual, modern touch.
Elegant colors were used to create pleasant rooms.
The main challenge was to make the reception and waiting area flow smoothly into the bar area. In the end, a reception area was designed that would be comfortable for workers and pleasant for guests. The back office behind it is perfectly designed for managing the business. There are hidden mirrors and an array of glass.
The bar has become a pleasant, comfortable area for everybody, whether hotel workers or guests, where they can read and relax, have a drink or something to eat. Here, among all the tones of gray, we started to add a few notes of color.
Blue is the centerpiece, especially the velvet fabric.
We created a set of rooms that made a great change to this hotel.
