The One Barcelona
Jaime Beriestain designs H10 Hotel Group’s first five star hotel
Jaime Beriestain has prioritized the use of natural light, fine materials and excellent finishes for this project. The objective is for guests to feel at home with all the comforts and well being of a private residence. The hotel has 89 spacious rooms, 25 of which are suites, and each one has a special character thanks to the original artwork of Fernando Prats.
The presence of works of art in the rooms, and the communal spaces in the hotel are original canvases of established artists such as Antonio Tàpies, Manolo Valdés, Yago Hortal, Manolo Ballesteros and Chilean artist Fernando Prats. They make up one of the pillars of creativity in the foundation for this project. The driving force behind Beriestain’s design in this property has been to establish a parallel with the artistic effervescence of the City of Condal that boasts prestigious art galleries such as Miguel Alzueta, Senda and the Gallery Prats.
“I am obsessed with order, symmetry and
the regularity of spaces because they are architectural elements that help to live the best experience”, affirms Beriestain. In order to achieve this, the designer has minimized the materials to three types of marble such as Sandras, Light Gray and Serpeggiante, and two types of metal that are copper and brass, and the use of oak in different shapes and tones, along with a range of timeless colours and neutral textiles. This drastic limitation of material allows for continuity in the different spaces, creating volume, sophistication and serenity.
The One Barcelona Hotel is designed for both foreign visitors and the locals. Therefore, Jaime Beriestain has broken with the traditional hotel codes and opened large windows in the common areas that invite you to discover this beautiful establishment. The hotel has a Sky Bar with an exceptional location and 360º views to the most emblematic buildings of Barcelona, such as the Casa Milà, the towers of the Sagrada Familia, the Cathedral of Barcelona and the Mediterranean Sea. For the Sky Bar, Beriestain has selected glass rails, which allow for total panoramic views. In addition, he has used dark oak wood to absorb the excess of light and maintain the natural colour of the rest of the spaces. The One Barcelona is located at C / Provença, 277, 08037 – Barcelona, T: (34) 902 100 906 or visit www.hotelstheone.com for more information.
