VP Plaza España Design hotel recently opened its doors in the center of Madrid, offering luxury accommodations wrapped into an unprecedented design philosophy, whose main protagonist is art. Prominent Spanish artists have contributed their unique works and creations, making this property an icon of design, architecture and art in the capital of Madrid.
Guests will be able to immerse themselves in an atmosphere where decor, furniture, architecture, and luxurious service co-exist in perfect harmony, offering an experience that goes far beyond accommodations. It is a philosophy that breaks the boundaries of what has already been done in the past and allows visitors to enjoy the essence of design, for a one-of-a-kind experience from beginning to end.
VP Plaza España Design worked with key Spanish designers, artists, and architects for the conceptualization of its façade and public spaces, which allows its facilities to have a distinctive and distinguished touch that makes it an unparalleled luxury option in Madrid. The hotel features include work by Pere Gifre, Dario Urzay, Fernando Palacios, Nacho Zubelzu, Veronica Domingo, and Héléne Bergaz, as well as Patricia San Juan, Marre, and Jan Hendrix.
Symbiosis of Art and Ingenuity
The selection of artists who have collaborated to bring life to the greatest icon of luxury and design represents a harmonious blend of disciplines, trends, visions, expressions, and styles. All of them carry a solid national and international trajectory, deserving of outstanding recognition for their iconic works inside and outside of Spain. Each, with their own inspiration, have made a contribution of exclusive creations, devised within the design philosophy that Hotel VP Plaza España Design 5* has established.
Renowned artist Pere Gifre is the architect of the impressive eight-story waterfall that dominates the atrium of the hotel and creates an impressive visual illusion of water that falls in a magnificently artistic way, trapping guests in a sensory experience that mixes the wild side of nature with the luxury and tranquility of water.
A tribute to art can be experienced in the lobby, where paintings created by the Bilbao Dario Urzay can be appreciated. The paintings highlight the artist’s personal poetics combined with his ability to induce new forms of knowledge and communication.
The corridors are also sure to catch guests’ attention as the painter and sculptor, Fernando Palacios, showcases material language with nearly three-dimensional forms that exude a special meaning of life in a luxurious context. His works of art may also be admired in some of the hotel rooms.
The mural “Buscando a un hombre,” created from Nacho Zubelzu’s inspiration, can be seen in front of the hotel elevators. Zubelzu’s impressive collages decorating the bar and lobby area bathrooms were made with the intention of creating an “art bar.”
An innovative and unique redesign of the aesthetics of the landscape is reflected in the works of Madrid-born Héléne Bergaz. The artist’s creations give a master touch to the hotel rooms, with a vanguardist approach of photographic montages with meteorites bearing his unmistakable stamp.
Verónica Domingo’s impressive paintings, created with Indian ink, decorate the hotel’s impressive suites. She shows her passion for Asian art and calligraphy, creating infinite value in the construction of a complex and abstract framework.
