With the architecture by Ribas & Ribas and interiors by Baranowitz Kronenberg architects, Sir Hotels opened their first hotel in Ibiza on July 7th 2017. Named ‘Sir Joan’, it provides an urban oasis within the fashionable center, referencing the location’s split personality between an exclusive luxury and party destination. Boasting 38 super luxury rooms, accompanied by renowned restaurants Izakaya and the butcher, it is set to become a high-end and most sort after resort. Sir Joan introduces a fresh alternative for what retreats could look and feel like in Ibiza. It invokes the imagination and draws implicitly on the sensuous connection between time, place, life, selves, history, memory and experience. Every act of the design embodies this very connection in a fresh way.
The notion of yacht-living introduces an air of a luxurious and a personal marine vessel running as an undercurrent throughout the spaces. When thinking about yacht-living, many imageries emerge but the ones that inspired the designers most were the sense of freedom, the flickering sea water when hit by the sun, the wood decking and shimmering stainless steel. These details can be found in the rooms. For the wall cove lighting VarioLED™ Flex HYDRA LD5 in profile with diffuse optic was used. The floor elements in the suites were made with VarioLED™ Flex VENUS Top View in a warm color temperature with W822 tape. The lighting elegantly underlines the high quality materials and luxury character of the hotel.
