Puro Hotel in Palma, Spain / by OHLAB

Refurbishment of a boutique hotel

Puro is an iconic 22 room boutique hotel located in the heart of La Lonja, in the historical center of Palma.

The project solves every room with individualized and unique layouts and solutions. The selection of natural and local materials emphasizing the Mediterranean essence has been very important.
