Designing a unique touristic accommodation.
Vicente de Luna, technician architect and one of the three brothers owners of Lemon Rock Bar & Hostel, they had a clear idea, years ago to make a Hostel in Granada, something out of the ordinary, knowing the technical part due to his profession, and the total trust on the vintage aesthetic that Francisco Segarra symbolises, also Cristina Bautist joined the creative part of the design of the space.
Some dreams take time to complete, the idea of opening a unique hostel in the city , came from Vicente Luna 15 years ago, when traveling in Scotland, sleeping in hostels, shelters for backpackers, Francisco Segarra´s collaborator and interior designer of this great project, connected one hundredth per cent from the beginning with the impeller o the idea, making the understanding a lot easier.
¨little by little we shaped it, based always on Francisco Segarra´s aesthetic trying to go a bit further, towards the European style, escaping the classic. Having in mind that is located in a big manor house from the XVII century, it was easy to have coffered ceilings, which were not modified, leaving old polychromes and hooks, the main patio has the space for a scaffold with lamps, bricks shown on the wall, mixed with the aged walls and wall papers designed by Francisco Segarra, manipulated to make it look like its been there for a long time.
This is how we start, Vicente and me to transform this manorial space in something with a more industrial inclination. I used working benches to seat, reused pallets o make exterior sofas and a mix of elements , following a chromatic line based in green and blue.
The illumination is warm, thanks to a great number of luminaires, all with filament light bulbs in the facade instead of the typical awnings, I used wood blinding, lacquered in black on top of an iron structure with golden trims.
We had premises in mind, the main… Music. That is why there are posters of bands and concerts all around, or emblematic concert entrances in frames.
So the manorial touch appeared, the sofa was velvet upholstered, Victorian metal sheets for the bar, the furniture in the patio, the wallpapers and the capitone for the benches in the restaurant and bar zone¨ (Cristina Bautista)
