Comprehensive remodeling, expansion and conversion of a hotel in Madrid.
The hotel, built in 1983, had only undergone a minor renovation on the ground floor since its opening.
The project rearranges all its public uses and services on the ground and basement floors. A new inclined directrix is introduced in the rearrangement of the ground floor that breaks its orthogonality and gives the space a new diagonal directrix that makes it more fluid.
The expansion of the hotel occurs with new rooms that make up the new front with panoramic views over the M-30, replacing the old opaque façade, laying the building out over the city. With the expansion, the hotel has a total of 252 rooms.
The façade improves the thermal conditions of the insulation, incorporating a new skin that regularizes and simplifies the large number of protrusions and levels, creating a new order in the grouping of windows and openings.
