AVINYÓ HOTEL * * * *
It is a building located in the old town of Barcelona on a corner building, with a narrow facade facing Avinyó Street and a longer one on Calle Lleona, which is a street less than 3 meters wide. The capacity of the hotel is 83 double rooms with bathroom. The functional program is complemented by two multipurpose rooms in the basement, restaurant-bar on the ground floor and finally swimming pool, sauna and gym located on the ground floor. The large inner courtyard is covered by a skylight, and to diffuse the light we have hung an inverted pyramid. To give intimacy to the rooms facing the courtyard, this has been surrounded by copper and steel wire mesh. Regarding the treatment of facades, two different languages are conjugated: the typical language of the houses of the old town that we use at both ends of the building in the meeting points with the neighboring constructions of classic style and a more current language in the intermediate part that Is mixed with the other mimetic language with the constructions that had occupied the plot on which the building has been constructed.
