During their work, the architects were faced with the necessity of erecting the building on a quarter of a circle of land, as well as with a height difference of five and a half meters. It was on this steep slope that the sea view was best. On the other hand, current building codes required two separate terraces. The design was based on two containers cut to obtain the desired shape “mineral”. The division of the building into two separate sections was designed to reduce the size of the load-bearing wall and create useful space below. It also determined the organization of the entrance to the building.
The first building, which rises on the highest point of the hill, houses the main bedrooms. It has only one level. The second, below, is enlarged in size with a second floor and underground parking. Access to the hotel is through a garden that winds down to the lobby. The hall, in turn, combines both parts. The way upstairs ends at the rooms and stairs that lead to the bedrooms and terrace, where you can enjoy stunning views.
The façade is painted white, the foundation is clad in concrete tiles, and the skylights and other elements stand out in blue, according to current regulations for coastal buildings –––.
