Chic & Basic Ramblas Hotel by Lagranja Design Studio

Barcelona-based design studio Lagranja redesigned the Chic & Basic Ramblas, an ecletic hotel in the heart of Raval district in Barcelona. The building works have been done in two stage, one during 2009 and the last one during the spring of 2012.

‘When our client showed us the old hotel, it directly reminded us the hotels of spanish films in the 60’s and 70’s, talking about the incipient tourist in our beaches’ say architects.This was the concept we used as inspiration for the whole hotel project, working hand in hand with the team of graphic designers (espluga+associates) looking for old pictures relationated with this period of time. That way, the reform of this hotel began to be also an exhibition design project. Another important determinant for the design was the limited budget available.

Three of the six room’s floor has been done during the first stage of the works in 2009. The rooms were distributed in six colours (red, light blue, dark blue, orange, grey and green). The colour chosen for every room was repeated in the bathroom’s tiles, the paint of some of the walls and the carpet that also appears as a presentation of every bedroom in front of their doors in the corridor. Every room has a different picture printed in the door that also gives the room its name (something like: Julio Iglesia’s room or the Eurovision Contest’s room…). A family of simple furniture has been also designed for these rooms like the wooden stair to hang your clothes.

The ground floor has been the last area reformed. A light green ‘seat 600′ in the middle of the looby wellcomes the new guests and prepares them to their “60’s spanish tourist” experience. A recepcion desk made with real bags and a ‘peseta-table’ complete the collection of special furniture design for this project. In the restaurant area the original bar has been respected just covering the old ceramic tiles with iron sheets. The false cealing has been made with printed trays as a resume of all the pictures used in the rest of the hotel.
