Puro Hotel

OHLAB / Paloma Hernaiz y Jaime Oliver

Description Technical file

The different room typologies in this hotel, the consequence of the irregular configuration of the existing buildings as well as of its particular design, are part of the strong personality of this new establishment in Mallorca.
Puro is an emblematic 22-room boutique hotel situated in the heart of the La Lonja district, in Palma’s historic centre. Adapting to different existing buildings, the hotel features a highly irregular configuration and the project makes the most of this complexity and its potential for generating unexpected and unique spaces in which each room is totally different.
The artist Pedro Oliver closely collaborated with the project’s authors, producing a pictorial work of special characteristics for this project, with bespoke and unique mural paintings for each room like frescoes strategically situated in the rooms.
Puro Hotel is defined as an urban oasis, cosmopolitan and contemporary, endowed with local roots that make it unique. A simple palette of natural materials is repeated as a constant throughout the project: oak wood, cement washbasins and bath linings, recovery of old walls in Marés limestone, traditionally used in Mallorca’s architecture, natural hemp rope, stainless steel light switches and taps, aged leather, linen, cotton, fabrics designed by the authors and produced in old weaving workshops around Mallorca for the upholsteries, cushions, raffia rugs and wicker baskets. The mandala doors in solid wood have also been recovered as the hotel’s seal of identity since its origins.
The greater part of the furniture has been specifically designed for the hotel. Beds, headboards and bed benches in pure and simple lines are integrated into the room to create a relaxed atmosphere. Particularly noteworthy is a series of pieces based on aged bronze trolleys inspired in the luggage trolleys traditionally used by hotel bellboys, which replace the old wardrobes, tables, mini bars and side units.
