rock formation
We find some geological features on the site.
Rocks carved by wind and rain.
We have colonized an existing structure with our program.
What is the shape of a rock-building?
None.
It does not have form but structure. A structure defined by the topography of the terrain and the site conditions. These are the features of the hotel.
A mobile structure which separates, breaks up only to join itself together again.
It mirrors the movement of people, searching for its position on the terrain.
It forms a continuous space defined by ramps and courtyards. Around which the program is arranged: the reception lobby, the auditorium, the media hall, the dinning room and cafeteria, the shopping area and restaurants and the spa. Above all these, hovering almost unseen, are the rooms and the private residences.
