Imposing, solid and full of history the centennial building of the Puigcerdá station (1922) surprises with its new proposal, a very unique accommodation that combines the modernity of its facilities and interiors with the deep-rooted tradition of its structure. This is the Hotel Parada Puigcerdà, in Girona, a project just opened after the reform carried out by the Prat & Simó Arquitectes Studio, which started from an excellent thermal and acoustic insulation of the building to convert the old dependencies of the station staff into cozy rooms.
It stands out above all the respect for the character of the building and the obvious presence of the original architectural elements, such as the interior metal structure, which is now in sight. The reform results in rooms of different characteristics, with modern approaches to distribution and services.
