Egue y Seta | Aparthotel “Suite Bates Motel”
The Bates Motel Suite designed by Egue and Seta offers the possibility of entertaining, working, eating, toileting and sleep characteristics of an “apart-hotel” from a single piece of multifunctional furniture around which are distributed radially stays free and differentiated by decorative elements that recreate the iconic stills from the films of Hitchcock.
Here, Norman Bates peeks through a tiny hole, prying LBJeffries has two windows, and “The Birds” encourage only the best memories “supense” of the “50s”. The Bates Motel Suite, like Hitchcock, proposes anticipation: A series of rooms that follow a narrative leaving notice at any time what is the other way or about to occur.RESUMEN del espacio.
An apartment of 35m2 an open space, clean, very easy circulation designed from a central cabinet serves as a distributor and container space where “hide” the different needs depending on the area where you are, microwave and cabinet maker in the kitchen, mirror and towel in the bathroom shelf in the living room / rest / reading and wardrobe in the bedroom, with a common denominator in all the plants found in the pots on top of the cabinet.
Embracing the same we have another element that strengthens as described above, a bar / counter which runs through the living areas making back to the couch and top to eat and work continues in the kitchen area where we have integrated sink and ends in the bathroom where the sink are also integrated. Even if it should be further reinforced the idea of this “wafer” center on the floor with the microcemento perimeter and in the middle of it a “carpet” leading hydraulic tile in all areas of space. The star always light in space, day 2 was given by the huge windows overlooking the Gran Via and the night careful lighting mainstay in the areas of “work” and indirectly in the rest areas.Location: c/Pedralbes nº151 2º Barcelona, Spain Architect: Egue y Seta Project name: Aparthotel “Suite Bates Motel”
