The aim of the project is to renovate and re-purpose the first floor of Roses ‘Hotel Maritim’ in a tapas and drinks bar.
The hotel is located on the seafront of Roses, a traditional fishing village, specifically on the beach promenade. The main objective is to give ‘Mediterranean character’ to the new space. The first floor used to be a closed interior space and a small outside terrace, of 3m wide, divided by a line of sliding doors. The key idea was to eliminate that division understanding the space as a unique covered outer space. For that purpose, we placed on the façade’s edge glass curtains, sliding and folding panels such as those of ‘See Glass’. This move allowed us to unify the whole space, without any frame or division, connecting it to the outside beach promenade and the sea......more

Sicily’s passeggiata and extra virgin green olive oil are the two connecting elements that bring the space inside the 19thc Old Rum Store together......more

Bakken & Bæck have been growing fast the last years, so naturally more office space were needed. Kvistad developed the interior concept "Scandinavian Spaceship"—a union of spaceage, futurism and scandinavian lines.
In this red room — The Sauna — All of the pillows and matrasses are designed and hand made by us.
Many ideas are taken from space faring vessels: All floors, walls and ceiling are painted in the same color, to give a feeling that everything is molded in the same material.......more
