One of the best located hotels is the Hotel Marina Luz . It is in front the sea. It has a terrace on the ground floor , where the pool is located, and a terrace on the first floor as a solarium over the reception and cafeteria.

Is on the solarium terrace where the hotel company decided to place a small building to complement the offer , especially for winter . The program includes a small gym, a spa area and two massage rooms , as during spring and autumn come many cycling groups .

The project does not arise from an initial gesture. Collects a number of factors that are going to shape the building. . The final shape , materials , structure, etc. , therefore, are not a starting point, but a point of arrival:

Regulations: It limited the area of ​​operation .

Access and circulation : Respect the access and circulation to the main building .

Views: Strengthen sea views and protect of the neighborhood.

It also must protect the sea views from the rooms, limiting the scope of the building.

Structure: The building is based on an existing slab that did not plan this overload . We should generate a very lightweight building and to distribute loads .

Energy: Back to the North is well protected and isolated. The building opens to South . Moveable curtains with nautical technology  protect the interior from excessive radiation.

Materiality: The terraces have wooden floor . The new building includes this material. The proximity to the sea conditioned the selection of materials to avoid maintenance.

Image : This piece is very visible from the rooms . So we had to take care cover , perhaps the main facade of the building.

All this is generating decisions that shaped the materialization of the building.

It is similar to the shape of a river. It is not a starting point , but  arises from the different energies that come together : gravity flow, topography, soil composition , erosion, vegetation , temperature , solar radiation, foreign stocks, etc. . The shape is the result, not the starting point .
