DESCRIPTION
 
Concept/idea
Victorio Lucchino Hotel Puerta America MadridComfort and serenity are the two keywords that best define the work of Victorio & Lucchino in the Hotel Puerta América. The basic premise was to make guests feel comfortable, welcomed and nurtured by warm textures and colours that embrace, that seem to rock to sleep whomever stays in these rooms.
Lobby and hallway
Victorio Lucchino Hotel Puerta America MadridIn the hall, the walls are lacquered in black, the armchairs are upholstered in velvet and the floors are covered in distressed black stone. Two white marble sphinxes from the designers’ personal collection rise hieratically in the middle of the lobby. The designers have brought the best from their daily lives to the hotel. They offer their unique universe to the guests, they take them by the hand and lead them into a courtyard in Córdoba.

The hallways are lined with black carpeting which contrasts with the beige velvet on the walls. Gypsum plumes reinforce the Baroque touch in the decoration. The numbers of each room, in rubber, are adhered to a steel backing.
Rooms
Victorio Lucchino Hotel Puerta America MadridVictorio & Lucchino have sought a “luxurious yet comfortable” atmosphere. On the wall where the headboard is located hangs an exclusive, one-of-a-kind work for each room crafted by the artist Sergio Cruz. The black furniture is by the designers and boasts rounded corners. However, perhaps the most unique feature in the plans by these two designers is the textiles: linen, velvet and cotton which have been used to create elaborate two-toned bed-spreads, curtains and cushions; red velvet bases anchored with tacks; a red velvet screen with a gold interior; red and black Chinese-inspired armchairs. The room features a classical layout, with the desk right next to the bed. In the bathroom, comfort and harmony reign among the bathtub and sink and the other pieces, all in ceramic. Finishing touches include red or beige candles, as well as custom-designed ceramic receptacles and pots. Victorio & Lucchino have forgotten no detail, and every single one bears their signature.

Not a single element – neither colours nor placement – is repeated in the different rooms. All of this is possible thanks to streamlined yet sophisticated materials such as cotton, linen, velvet, distressed stone and black glass, which the designers have reinterpreted according to their unique vision. In terms of colours, tones like chocolate brown, anthracite grey, black, beige and bordeaux prevail, which with they manage to create a warm space where anyone can feel at home.
