Since its construction in 1957, the Tower of Madrid has been a symbol of modern Madrid with 142 meters of height and its 34 floors. And now, with the opening of the Torre Madrid hotel across nine of those floors it boasts an interior that fully reflects its grandeur and location. With the completion of this ambitious design Jaime Hayon has given his hometown the ultimate compliment, a beautiful, unique space that pays homage to the wonder that is Madrid, creating a hotel to match the glamour of any of the grand cities of Europe.
Over 6 metres in height, the spectacular lobby is a sincere homage to Spanish art and traditions. Adding in the lobby bar has converted this area into an active place for guests to enjoy themselves in a chic, intimate setting. During our time at the hotel, every evening would start with one of the seasonal bespoke cocktails created by the bar team.
“I was fully dedicated to the creation of a very special and unique space that would represent a new vision of Spain, a vision far from the traditional aesthetic , aside from being my hometown, for me Madrid represents Spain’s diversity and richness.” Jaime Hayon.
Through out the hotel, furnishings and light fixtures are the result of the many fruitful collaborations that the interior designer has worked on in the last decade with some of Europe’s finest furniture brands and design houses. The rooms are furnished with pieces by Fritz Hansen, &Tradition, Gubi, Arflex, Cassina, BD Barcelona, Parachilna lamps. Each piece part of a unified design language that involved many expert craftsmen to bring to fruition this simply dazzling interior. Every corner of the hotel has been thoughtfully designed to create vignettes that balance a sophisticated aesthetic with comfort and luxury. The curves of the sofa and chairs, the subtly elegant lighting, the sumptuousness of the colours, the wit and humour of the decorative details, across the hotel Hayon’s trademark ingenuity is on display at its most effective and appealing heights.
Jaime Hayon has accomplished many things in his career, creating products, art and interiors that have firmly established him as world class talent but with the opening of the new Hotel Torre Madrid, he opens a new personal chapter. Barceló Torre de Madrid is the city of Madrids chicest hotel in one of the most iconic buildings.
