The main attraction of the challenge posed by the Hotel Indigo, was to create a nature reserve in the heart of Madrid.


Being a city hotel so the goal was to give a touch of color to the Sky Lounge of the hotel, culminating in a mini water and botanical universe. With impressive views of the sunset in Madrid, no doubt this was the best framework to create a lively and fun atmosphere where disconnection of the city were full.


Through the creation of a utopian vision focuses pop and soul, where the real protagonist is a particular vinylated vertical garden design is created. Downstairs is the bar and cocktail lounge is a continuation of fresh and landscaped terrace space but with a touch more cozy and intimate.Comfortable and always open to the skyline of Madrid through its fantastic infinitypool place. It is clearly recognizable marine inspiration which continues through the predominant colors, blue and green. It is essential to comment on the chosen materials and textures: wood, velvet, glass, metal and vinyl, which provide much sophistication to the place and make the furniture in jewel pieces.

The disposition of refined decoration works in creating a distinctive and intimate environment. As a nod to the hotel’s location in the city, on the roof of the restaurant is a scale map of Madrid’s Gran Vía built in mirror and with references to the main streets of the neighborhood.


This is particularly wink at Hotel Indigo study that always keeps a special relationship with the neighborhood where the hotel is located.
