Three eco-renovated boutique apartments that date back to Catalan Modernism (1900) and a stunning roof terrace overlooking Barcelona make up a new form of accommodation that truly connects with the city. yök Casa + Cultura is not a hotel, but it is not your typical apartment rental either. Run by hotel-management expert Mari Marañís, born and bred in the Catalan capital, yök proves that the devil is in the details and that better tourism is possible.
All 3 Casas date back to 1900 and our office is a rooftop extension from the 70ies. The spaces were renovated following eco-design principles and respecting the Catalan Modernism features like the high decorative ceilings, gorgeous mosaic tiles, beautiful etched glass and amazing wooden sliding balcony doors. A great effort was put into re-using materials and adding VOC-free, recyclable ones to the mix. Local products and materials were used whenever possible. Smart water and energy saving devices help save resources without sacrificing the guests’ experience and the hosts offset their CO2 emissions every year.
The name “yök” comes from the Catalan word “lloc”, meaning place or location. It is also the metaphor for yolk- the centre of things, where the energy lies, and also serves as a binder of ingredients. The logo, designed by Katie Barcelona, is inspired by Dalí’s logo for the Catalan lollipop Chupa-chups.
Casa A is perfect for up to 4 people. It is a 2 double bedroom apartment (60m2), equipped with luxury beds and balconies, a fully equipped open kitchen in the living room and a bathroom with a shower.
