Hotel Barcelona - Exeter
The opening of the hotel in 2001 saw the former Victorian Eye Infirmary take on new lease of life as Hotel Barcelona. The building is no stranger to awards, built as the result of a national design competition, it has since won a number of very prestigious titles including Design Hotel of the Year.
Inspired by the city of Barcelona, the design for the hotel was to recreate the feel of the place rather than to copy it. Here and there however, there were a few echoes of the city in the ironwork, handrails and balustrades. The original marble terrazzo floors helped create this Mediterranean experience, as did the iconic John Eaves mural in Cafe Paradiso – vibrant and strong colours dominating the light filled space.
