4, Calle de Cedaceros, Madrid
The Hotel Vincci Centrum in Madrid is a contemporary boutique hotel placed in an historical building.
Vincci Centrum is placed at an historical building dated back to 1920 and is protected as a National Heritage. The hotel was completely renovated, inspired by the glamour of the 1950’s and natural elements from Scandinavian design were used all over the hotel. Located in the center of Madrid, near Gran Via, the hotel finds itself in the cultural triangle formed by the Prado, Thyssen and Reina Sofia museums.
The interior designer Beatriz Silveira, responsible for the redesign of Vincci Centrum, was inspired by the glamour of the 50’s and the Scandinavian design. The white and neutral colors invaded the walls, floors and lounge ceiling as well as all the public areas of the hotel, bringing a greater sense of space. Beatriz used noble materials, such as Aristea marble evoking luxury and sophistication and natural oak to contrast with the bronze. The interior designer wanted to give its own personality to this 4-star property of the Vincci Hotels, by using materials and brands that combined design, quality and originality.
For this project Beatriz was looking for an equilibrated contrast and harmony between colors, materials and patterns. The choice fell over those that enhance the light of the space, create warmth and a sense of coziness.
The designer loved to perform the redesign of the Vincci Centrum and confessed to have some favorite pieces at the project. The Beetle Chairs and Stools by Gubi, a perfect mix between Italian and Danish design in laminated molded veneer, used at the Bellini food&bar. The Hanna Suspension Lamp by DelightFULL, a retro suspension fixture elegantly composed by five black & copper lamshades made in aluminum, also used at the Bellini food& bar. And the Turquoise Crystal Chandelier designed by Beatriz Silveira.
She also used some exclusive pieces in the project, such as the impressive wine cellar that gains prominence and was specially designed by her for this hotel.
“Aesthetics and functionality are not incompatible, a space can trnamit strength and personality while harmony and warmth. The key is balance and the selection of each piece”, said Beatriz Silveira, interior designer.
The 8 floor hotel, has 87 rooms, all equipped with air-conditioning, free safe, mini-bar, free wi-fi in all building, TV and a set of courtesy products. The 4-star hotel has also Junior Suite rooms with a small living room, a balcony with a view over the city and a special VIP room service.
