The design for Palau Fugit Hotel in Girona's Barri Vell seamlessly merges historical and contemporary elements to craft a distinctive and inviting atmosphere. Preserving the 18th-century Baroque palace's original architectural details imbues the space with a sense of history and authenticity.

To enliven this historical backdrop, vibrant and carefree colors, eclectic furniture, and contemporary art have been introduced. This infusion creates a captivating contrast with the ancient architecture, offering visitors a dynamic and fresh visual experience.

The objective is to imbue Palau Fugit with a welcoming ambiance influenced by a feminine presence. Meticulous attention to detail, thoughtful material and texture selection, and an overall warmth contribute to this atmosphere. The eclectic furniture further enhances the space, evoking the relaxed feel of a diverse family home.

Artistic elements, from local artists elevate the visual journey for guests. The design strikes a delicate balance between history and contemporaneity, formality and informality, providing a unique environment for socializing and relaxation, all within the rich historical tapestry of Girona.
