Lagranja Design transforms the historic Hotel Terramar in Sitges
It is said that it was in Sitges that the Spanish term ‘chiringuito’ (open-air beach bar) first appeared, a concept imported by returning émigrés from Cuba during an epoch in which artists and the avant-garde where inspired by the town’s light and charm.
The first Hotel Terramar opened its doors in the 1930s. Nowadays the hotel has 213 rooms that are spread out over six floors. With 18 different layouts, the design concept had an extra layer of difficulty.
Artisan materials have inspired the interior and creative processes, in order to create one-off pieces of contemporary style that still maintain a traditional quality.
Singular design pieces born of craftsmanship
Materials and techniques in the Mediterranean tradition are present in the original furniture and lighting that the studio has designed and had made specifically for the hotel.
Basket ware, ceramic, macramé and terracotta are present in many of the decorative elements in the interior design of the new ME Sitges Terramar.
The singular pieces are combined with sofas and Basic XL armchairs; designed for the hotel, and now forming part of the Basic de Lagranja Collection.
