22 Aug DiarioDESIGN: Renovation of the National Parador of Cáceres, a palace to the contemporary gentlemen
A soothing and eco-friendly option to enjoy the summertime. This is the last idea the Sanserif Creatius’s Communications Director, José Antonio Giménez, has proposed in the diarioDESIGN. The renewal of the National Parador of Cáceres (Parador de Cáceres) along with the presence of the Ana Yago’s Valentina chairs (sillas Valentina) are the focal point of this article.

Extract from the piece of news: Two cardboard seats just like thrones lit up with Led spotlights situated on the roof are the beautiful framework of a wooden viewpoint settled on a baked clay floor. This is one of the many pictures the renewed decoration of the National Parador of Cáceres leaves us with. A very harmonious group integrated for two gothic palaces. And thanks to the work of the interior decorators’ crew of both Paradores and El Corte Inglés the new parador preserves just the right hints of what its origins were without, of course, causing any trouble on the calmness and the comfort the visitors deserve.
After almost two years of construction, this last April the spot transformed in a hotel establishment in 1989 was finally opened. Both the new distribution and the decoration attempt to blend past and vanguardism maintaining the historic retails of the building. Hence, by walking through the rooms you spot jousting armours, paving courtyards or even the tapestry that survived among the years. This way we get to know an example of how sustainability and history are two concepts that can work together.
