Hotel Pratik Rambla Barcelona by Lázaro Rosa-Violán - 2

Hotel Praktik Rambla is another* charming project by the Spanish interior designer Lázaro Rosa-Violán. Praktik Rambla is one of the new breed of cheap and chic hotels in Barcelona, offering, upmarket boutique services at a low-cost. 'Housed in an emblematic building on the elegant Rambla de Catalunya, its original modernista (art nouveau) details, such as colourful, mosaic flooring, high ceilings and ornate mouldings, have been left intact. Contemporain then added contemporary elements such as designer lamps, parquet surfaces, large, swathed-in-white beds and cheerful, retro-inspired bathrooms, creating a hip interior decor that, whilst still retaining the building’s sense of history and architectonic importance, does not skimp on comfort and meets all needs of the modern urban traveller.'

Lázaro Rosa-Violán describes himself as an ‘urban archaeologist’ and ‘style hunter’. Although he studied the Fine Arts, his ability to conceive interiors is instinctual. His first project (a restaurant) was carried out in the Balearic Island of Ibiza in 1990 and in 2003 he established Contemporain, on the premise that very few bars and restaurants were executed whereby interior design, lighting, ambiance and food worked together to make a coherent whole. “The interior designer is an actor“, he has stated. “He must dress up and change roles, understand new identities and integrate them with his own.”
