The Moods Catedral hotel in Barcelona: Unique, minimalist craftsmanship together with Klein architectural systems

Accurate material selection can grant identity and harmony, as illustrated by the use of Klein sliding systems at The Moods Catedral.

Accurate material selection can grant identity and harmony, as illustrated by the use of Klein sliding systems at The Moods Catedral.

Customised finishes and spatial configuration are decisive factors in any hotel project. Material selection can also be key in granting identity and harmony.

The Moods Catedral in Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter, executed by architecture firm Miriam Barrio, is the perfect example of this fusion: a single project in which materials and finishes join together to provide perfect functionality and convey wellbeing.

The suites’ interior design is characterised by elegant perforated sliding doors, made of natural rattan fiber, which run from wall to wall. They are structured by a single recessed Klein Lite+ sliding track, which creates a separation between the room and the hall, while also supporting the sliding closet doors.

This continuous, minimalist lateral plan, which at a glance appears to be solely made up of these sliding rattan panels, organises the space and conveys harmony. The use of a natural material with a perforated finish makes the partitions seem airy, while also allowing for the diffusion of natural light.

In this project, the materials lend character, while the Lite+ sliding system is the differentiating component.
