El hotel de Jean Nouvel en Barcelona (II)

Actualización de entrada

La prestigiosa revista de Arquitectura Architectural Record ha dedicado en su página digital un artículo sobre el hotel Renaissance del que casualmente mostré mis fotografías ayer en Please…don’t move! Este es el link a la página de AR: Renaissance Barcelona Fira Hotel | Ateliers Jean Nouvel | Barcelona | Building Types Study | Architectural Record.

El articulista (David Cohn) dice:

The literal oasis is a central open-air garden that runs vertically through the hotel’s 26 floors, filling every level with palm trees and other vegetation. This vertiginous, north-facing void, animated by zigzagging fire stairs, rises between two solid volumes containing guest rooms. These are accessed from single-loaded open galleries that overlook the garden and its spectacular views to the city. As project leader Damien Renchon points out, “It’s really a vertical motel.”

Efectivamente, la sensación que se tiene en los pasillos de las habitaciones, rodeado por las escaleras zigzagueantes metálicas, las bandejas del jardín de palmeras y las vistas estupendas hacia la ciudad puede recordar a un motel, aunque con acabados de lujo.
