K+K Hotel Picasso
The K+K Hotel Picasso Barcelona is a new hotel classified with 4 stars and located in Paseo Picasso adjacent to Ciutadella Park in Barcelona’s Born district.
The strict planning rules determine the height of the floors and their distribution. To make the most of the hotel business, the maximum buildable meters were exhausted with a total of 4 floors plus attic and two basements for parking.
Similarly, the outward appearance also follows municipal guidelines and this is why the facade adopts a classic image that respects the surrounding buildings, the entire enclosure is made of artificial stone blocks lining the rest of the ride. In the courtyards, it was chosen a plaster finish which on the lower floors will be covered by vegetation. To allow exit from the rooms there are balconies that have been protected through iron railings or stone balustrades according to the image of the rails of the neighbours.
For the interior design, Wortmann Architects collaborated with the London interiors office led by Rachel Becket, R Interiors. Rachel’s team, following their philosophy of understanding the existing building before intervening in it, work hard together with our team, consulting us at all times to obtain an homogeneous construction composition.
Interior materials aim to offer a noble image, according to K+K Hotels guidelines, but maintaining a fresh and contemporaneous Mediterranean touch inspired in Barcelona city.
