Vincci Bit Hotel, Barcelona
Urban art is the protagonist of the new 4* Vincci Bit Hotel, a space that emerges from an innovative, avant-garde concept: that of creating a veritable gallery of modern art, open 365 days a year, inside a hotel. More than 2,000 square metres of mural art distributed around its corridors and communal spaces in a veritable tribute to the world of street art, illustration and design through the works of 10 artists of recognised trajectory, which are displayed permanently on the walls of the building’s 7 floors, the flat roof, the basement and a few communal spaces.

The building, the work of the Catalan architecture practice CIRICI & BASSO, enlisted the Chilean Jaime Beriestain for the interior decoration. In addition to giving the building its peculiar decorative style with vintage pieces from the ‘60s-‘70s, both originals and re-editions, in-house designed furniture produced specifically for the project and other elements from recognised brands in the world of design, he has been entrusted with selecting the artists who will decorate the hotel, in a journey around the world of emotions through different cultures and techniques that reflect the eclecticism and vibrant nature of the city of Barcelona.

Ten artists and their ten different ways of viewing art in a hotel designed to be visited floor by floor and in which each chose work has to appeal to the visitor. Like the great mosaic in front of the entrance door by the Spaniard Marta Cerdá who, together with Yoshi Sislay, a Japanese illustrator now working in Barcelona and his black marker pen drawings on a white background that also decorate the seventh floor, have been in charge of the ground floor; or those produced by the Russian design studio Dopludo Collective on the lower ground floor, highly varied and unconnected but with a common denominator: their capacity to transmit to the observer the sensation of floating thanks to a curious visual effect. The upper floors where the rooms are located have been decorated by different artists who have given each corridor a different appearance.
