Lagranja Design Revives the 1930s Hotel Terramar to Its Historic Mediterranean Roots

Hotel Terramar in Sitges, Spain is a historic property belonging to the Melia hotel chain that dates back to its opening in the 1930s. Back then, a bourgeoning beach culture activated by avant-garde artists and modernists revived the town and created the concept of “chiringuito” (a Spanish term for open-air beach bar), or so they say. In an effort to restore the hotel’s storied past, Lagranja Design gave the hotel an updated facelift that highlights the aesthetic of the Mediterranean, like ceramics, wicker, clay, macramé, terra cotta.


There were many custom projects that were involved in the restoration of the hotel, including the marble-covered bar, the wood screening, the pottery wall hangings, and the fish installation art.

The hotel now features 213 rooms in 18 different layouts, spread out over six floors. Lagranja also designed the furniture for the hotel, including the sofas and Basic XL armchairs, which now form part of the Basic de Lagranja Collection.
