***hotel (92 rooms). Barcelona
Located in the southwest corner of block occupied by the La Maquinista shopping center, this small building with a surface area of 3,500 m² above-ground, and 1,000 m² below-ground is strategically located. The projected hotel incorporates these points:
The sidewalk from the façade on Sao Paolo street is nearly three times as wide, leaving a private free space qualified as Green, of which the entire access benefits by situating the customers´ entrance almost on the corner, and the service entrance through the opposite corner at this space orientates towards the cafeteria/dining area.
The building is conceived as a prefabricated concrete box where the room windows are located from longitudinal tears and the other windows vertical in a comb manner at the end of a screened hallway. On this main façade, one part turns towards the corner to withdraw and reinforce the floating effect of the comb.
