CIDON Interior Design & Contract, experts in interior architecture and decoration, as well as in FF&E and OS&E equipment management for the hotel sector, announces the completion of the project carried out in Seville for the Hospes Hotels group, owned by Omega Capital and Gaw, as well as the opening of the hotel on April 1, 2023.

This luxury boutique hotel is part of the Hospes Hotels chain, which has 9 establishments located throughout Spain. Founded in 2000, the chain has managed to establish itself as a luxury and exclusive option that combines comfort and well-being to make the customer feel privileged. The differentiating aspects compared to the competition are: a service of the highest quality, proximity and personalization, as well as sustainable and environmentally friendly development that respects the surroundings and the personality of each hotel. The chain has a taste for authenticity, and there is nothing more authentic than the local culture, exploring its heritage, customs, and of course, gastronomy. Hospes Hotels, as a commercial operating company, along with Omega Capital and Gaw as owners, present this project located at Plaza Jesús de la Redención, 2, in the city of Seville.

Hospes Hotels has selected CIDON Interior Design & Contract to carry out the renovation and interior design project for the Las Casas del Rey de Baeza hotel. CIDON, with Erico Navazo’s studio as a collaborator, together with CIDON architect Alba Vila, successfully achieved the objective of refurbishing the 41 rooms, reception, and restaurant. All demolition and construction work was carried out in the building, while the furniture was manufactured for subsequent installation.

With a duration of two and a half months and a strict adherence to the specified timeline due to the priority of opening for Holy Week in Seville, this renovation has aimed to revitalize the spaces and provide new experiences in different areas of the hotel, such as rooms, common areas, and the Azahar restaurant. All of this without losing sight of the initial spirit of the Andalusian hotel and maintaining the highest quality standards.

The renovation and interior design project Andalusian inspiration perfectly integrated into the hotel environment.

The building was a former 18th-century neighborhood courtyard, three stories high and organized around two central courtyards. The work consisted of demolishing rooms and common areas, installing a new plumbing and electrical system. The old finishes were replaced with new ceramic floors in the rooms and solid flooring, recovered from the 18th century, in the common areas. The wall coverings were replaced with lime plaster in earth tones, both in the rooms and common areas, and painting work was carried out on all the ceilings.

In the bathrooms, showers, bathtubs, sanitary ware, washbasin furniture, and all plumbing fixtures and accessories were replaced. Finally, the installation of both fixed and movable furniture and technical and decorative lighting was carried out.

The rooms were intervened with natural wood furniture, textiles with vibrant patterns and colors that nod to traditional Sevillian decor. The city’s vibrant colors and surroundings, as well as the most representative fabrics and textures of the culture, were taken into account. The change to ceramic flooring brings brightness and freshness to the space, creating continuity between the room and the bathroom as the same flooring is used for both areas. As for the bathrooms, a more minimalist image was sought, using microcement as a coating and matte black accessories, which give it a more contemporary look.

The intervention in the common areas has been quite a challenge due to the rectangular shape with very low height, making it a very difficult space to create appealing interior design. Floors and wall coverings have been changed, following the same criteria as in the rooms. In both the reception and the restaurant, a whole wall of aged mirrors has been installed, providing a great sense of spaciousness and allowing the reflection of the exterior inside, achieving a visual effect where nature is included in the interior space. Various traditional Andalusian touches were considered for the furniture and overall decoration.

The coordination of the teams involved in the project has been a success, with up to 40 people working simultaneously on construction, electrical and plumbing installations, painting, plastering, microcement, finishes, flooring changes, carpentry, upholstery, and furniture. All the work has been carried out under the supervision and direction of CIDON architects Alba Vila and Rocío Narváez, along with the important role of Ezequiel Ferreras as the installation director, also part of the CIDON internal team.

The result of this project has been the complete satisfaction of both Hospes, the hotel operator, and Omega Capital and Gaw, the owners. The goals set both in terms of the project and meeting the requested deadlines have been successfully achieved thanks to the excellent work of all the teams involved, as well as the suppliers.”
