DESCRIPTION
 
John Pawson Hotel Puerta America MadridAlthough this is a relatively small project in terms of area, with just 150 sq.m. in comparison with the 1,200 sq.m. for each floor, John Pawson has achieved an impressive space using a limited range of materials.

Pawson’s reception is a place where wood predominates. As you enter the hotel, there is an initial area to sit down and read a newspaper, a quieter zone with a small decorative water fountain. Hidden behind a wooden panel is the reception desk and the hotel lifts. The aim of the wood is to create space, and the small opening reserved for the reception desk serves to reinforce the feeling of continuity.

The common areas include several large conference rooms, all separated by sliding panels and featuring exits to the outdoor terrace.
