Ohlab designed a 22 room boutique hotel that adapts itself to the different existing buildings in the heart of La Lonja, Palma de Mallorca. The refurbishment project takes advantage of the space complexity, and each room is different from each other.


Puro is defined by a simple palette of natural and local materials such as oak wood, cement sinks and bathroom walls, recovered mares-stone walls – the limestone used in traditional majorcan architecture –, natural hemp ropes, stainless steel switches and fittings, aged leather, linen, cotton, fabrics designed by Ohlab and produced on ancient Majorcan looms for upholstery, cushions and plaids, raffia carpets and wicker baskets produced locally. The solid wooden mandala doors, hallmark of the hotel since its origins, have been recovered.

The artist Pedro Oliver worked closely with the architects producing a special pictorial work, a series of unique custom made mural paintings strategically placed in each room. The selection of natural and local materials emphasize the Mediterranean essence, while the bathrooms are conceived as spaces for pleasure, spacious and integrated with the bedrooms, with sculptural and freestanding bathtubs.
