The One Barcelona

Jaime Beri­es­tain de­signs H10 Ho­tel Group’s first five star ho­tel

Golf Asia (Malaysia) - - CONTENTS -

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.ho­tel­s­ for more in­for­ma­tion.
