The briefing was to create a Hotel with a local approach, handcrafted and custom-designed, with unique spaces that reflect Barcelona’s lifestyle and architecture.

We decided to create a dialogue between the Hotel and its neighbourhood, Ciutat Vella, meaning Old City, which is indeed the oldest part in town. This is an artsy neighbourhood with an old body and a young soul.

Our strategy was to create different and unique spaces inside the Hotel, inviting both guests and locals to stay, enjoy, meet and interact. They all reflect the local lifestyle, with a chic and joyful atmosphere, unforcedly elegant and genuine at the same time.

The design brings handcrafted elements, local brands and art, colourful ceramic patterns, together with reinterpreted references to its historical past, mixed with a contemporary spontaneous design approach that gives Vividora Hotel a unique, energetic personality.

Most of the furniture elements and finishes are local brands, bringing a local flair to the design while collaborating with the local economy. And last but not least, we also achieved avoiding long transports while helping save our planet.
