Kimpton VividoraBarcelona, Spain 2019
The Hotel Kimpton Vividora is located in the old town of Barcelona in a classic building where a previous hotel already operated. The interior design played a key role in its conversion to a Boutique Hotel.
On one hand, the lighting was designed in dialogue with the interior design which aimed to transmit values related to the color of the city; bright spaces with reflections and shades linked to the Mediterranean sea. On the other hand, the lighting design aimed to communicate the branding of the hotel which presents the Hotel as a place where customers and neighbors coexist in harmony.
