ABOUT

Part of a large sport-driven resort, the design creates a communal space within the volume of the building, defining the identity of the hotel. Eco features include a façade of perforated metal sheets that diffuse light and give exterior sun‐shading, rainwater is collected and a large interior waterfall is part of the air‐conditioning.

The design of the hotel rooms follows a rational layout of the necessary functions with a quiet wall for resting activities and an infrastructure wall for media.
