Text description provided by the architects. The building is located in a plot included in the field of M.P.G.M. For the renovation of the industrial areas of Poble Nou (district of activities 22 @).
The present project develops a 4-star superior hotel building (4 * S) with 235 rooms for the SB hotel chain, where a new concept of hotel is proposed. The building consists of 3 floors basement, ground floor, 8
The whole urbanization of the outer spaces is part of an urban continuum of public use of the interiors of the block. The plants on grade 1 to 8 are mainly destined to rooms. The 8th floor generates a perimeter terrace for the suites rooms of this floor. The top floor hosts a swimming pool, solarium, gym and bar area and terrace with great views of the city. The main façade seeks to give a unique image to the building, while giving a response to functionality, sunshine and urban scale. The 4 facades have the same treatment, where predominates the vertical component that give the openings of the windows of the rooms. The surface treatment is with large format panels with micro-cement finish of light tones.
Different textures differ depending on how a geometric engraving is reproduced on each panel. The geometry of each window is completed with a piece perpendicular to the facade that varies its position to side and side of the window depending on the plant. This piece incorporates a lighting system that, through a strip of LEDs, will illuminate the building. The façade technology is solved with large curtain wall openings glass in ground floor and ventilated facade in the floor type.
