Jean Nouvel to design leafed façade for hotel

Jean Novel’s Barcelona hotel is pierced with windows shaped like palm folds with a huge atrium filled with palm trees and a variety of tropical vegetation.

Ateliers Jean Nouvel teamed up with Ribas & Ribas ti design the 27-storey Renaissance Barcelona Fira Hotel for the Marriott hotel chain.

The building consists of a pair of 110m towers that are fused at the top by a rooftop restaurant, a terrace and swimming pool.

The space between is covered by glazing and creates a greenhouse-style atrium with staircases interspersed with greenery from five continents.

The windows that are shaped like leaves are positioned in front of some of the hotel’s 357 rooms.
