10th Floor Puerta America Hotel
Madrid's five-star Hotel Puerta America, commissioned by Spanish hotel company Silken Hotels, has opened its doors to the public. A celebration of avant-garde interior design and architecture, Hotel Puerta America brings together 19 of the world's finest architects and designers—including Zaha Hadid, John Pawson, Ron Arad, and Norman Foster—in a unique hospitality experience that's the talk of the continent. The hotel has 12 floors, 308 standard rooms, 12 suites, and 22 junior suites and offers a wide variety of aesthetic environments. Each of the hotel's 12 floors bears the imprint of a different design talent. For instance, Pritzker prizewinner Zaha Hadid designed the first floor which is characterized by sinuous lines and fluidity based on new developments in digital design. In his projects, Isozaki focuses on an intuitive search for spatial meanings, transforming the structure into a tool capable of combining dream and reality.
