Lázaro Rosa Violán

Spain Architecture Industrial Designer

Lázaro Rosa-Violán describes himself as an ‘urban archaeologist’ and ‘style hunter’. Although he studied the Fine Arts, his ability to conceive interiors is instinctual. His first project (a restaurant) was carried out in the Balearic Island of Ibiza in 1990 and in 2003 he established Contemporain, on the premise that very few bars and restaurants were executed whereby interior design, lighting, ambiance and food worked together to make a coherent whole. “The interior designer is an actor“, he has stated. “He must dress up and change roles, understand new identities and integrate them with his own.”

Some of his projects: Only You Hotel Madrid, Casa Momo Restaurant, Boca Grande Restaurant, Banys Orientals Hotel, Artte Bar, Restaurante Toto Barcelona, Bazaar Restaurant Madrid, Hotel Pulitzer Barcelona, Oysho Madrid, Hotel Cotton House Barcelona, Hotel El Nacional Barcelona, Platea Madrid, Chez Cocó Restaurant Barcelona, Aristocrazy, Les Chouettes París …
