Nikbor Hostel by Normal Estudio

Nikbor Hotel juxtaposes classic and contemporary aesthetics.

Overlooking Barcelona’s Jardinets de Gracia, Nikbor Hotel brings contemporary flair into a classic setting. used minimal lines to frame vintage tile motifs. Common rooms – each with a distinct visual impact – break up this 42 room hostel and student residence.

A fresh aesthetic targets a young and independent audience. Guests are first welcomed by a suggestively shaped reception desk that reflects the floor pattern. Installed on the wall, white-lacquered telephones create a playful grid. In both the cold kitchen and buffet, floor to wall tile motifs are encased in pinewood. A bespoke lighting scheme facilitates different events but can also create intimate retreats.
