The property that houses the Royal Passeig de Gràcia is number 84 of the promenade, very close to la Pedrera. It was designed by the architects Enric Tous and Josep Mª Fargas between 1965 and 1968. Until 1988 it was the headquarters of the now defunct Banca Catalana. In order to preserve its architectural value, Royal Hotels Group has entirely preserved the facade and the original structural components.
The characteristic facade is a protected feature.
It is formed by a modular structure in which there are alternating reflective thermal pane glass soffits with other parabolic surface insulators. A second transparent layer enhances the acoustic and energy-saving performance of the building.
The jewel in the crown is Warren Space, between the ground floor and first floor. The stacked beams that give their name to this attractive space are the backbone of the building.
These outstanding pillars were hidden for years and now act as creative wall dividers between three sections: the dining room, the cocktail bar, and the meeting room.
