Nikbor Hostel by Normal Estudio sits in a prime location on the top floors of a classical building in Barcelona. Overlooking the Jardinets de Gracia at the top of Paseo de Gracia (one of the major avenues containing some of the city’s most celebrated architecture, businesses & shopping), the hostel began on a privileged note. As a place for young, independent travellers and students, Normal Estudio put a fresh spin on the original tone and turned the space into something completely new – a hybrid of stateliness and youthful freshness.

With an approach of “finding contemporary formats to express classical ideas”, the designers have crafted a hostel that breaks the norm – part old, part new, slightly grand and slightly quirky. The reception area says it first with its original tile flooring that informed the position and shape of the main desk, white-lacquered telephones that cover the walls, custom furniture, and an offbeat feel.

This juxtaposition is carried throughout the entire space, where colourful retro tiles contrast with clean lines, and various types of flooring sit side by side. The smaller touches, like lighting and furniture choices, maintain the consistent feel.
