“The new design complements their brutality with elegant interventions and transforms their austere functionality into a place of calm, comfort and relaxation”.
“Dominating the site are the 2 concrete blocks that are each divided lengthwise into 2 rows of 10 wine-storage tanks”.
“A shallow pool separates the 2 rows of rooms, reflecting light and providing a cool breeze on hot afternoons”.
“The impressive steel drums that give the hotel its characteristic logo have been delicately preserved and stand proud in the water”.
“The courtyard tank rooms are identical in their ergonomic layout”.
“Textured glass brings light through from the bedroom and dressing areas into the bathroom”.
“They are connected by a wide promenade walkway raised above the sand, leading to the other parts of the hotel and down to the beach”.
