Based on the premise of ´your home away from home´ the
design translates the idea of daily life and festive spirit of
villages in Spain and all around the world. The name,
meaning `Beautiful View of the Garden in the North´,
references to the large garden in the back.
The space is divided into two floors, both facing the street
as well as the garden. On the ground floor the guest is
welcomed by thousands of hanging flowers and is then
guided through the different aspects of village life by
passing a florist, grocery, newsstand, barber, village pub
and ending at the central point of a village: the church and
main square. Here the custom-made lights and flags remind
us of a village feast. From the second floor, the private
dining areas are converted to balconies looking at the main
square through the beaded curtains of their windows.
The architects Oliver Franz Schmidt, Natali Canas del Pozo and Lucas Echeveste Lacy form El Equipo Creativo, an interior design studio based in Barcelona and specialized in the interior design of gastronomic, commercial and brand flag spaces.
"We share the idea that space, the same as food, tells stories, creates sensations and experiences. Every new brief comes with its own story, therefore we aim to find a unique design that includes craftmanship to tell every story in the most enticing way."
