2008 - Low Cost Hotel
This project was an academic exercice for the University of Seville.
The hotel is located beside the largest hospital in Andalucia. The orientation is optimized for the best ventilation and ilumination of the rooms.
The envelope is a traslucend skind that filters the direct sun light on the facade.
The hotel is composed of modulated cylindrical tubes that are inserted into a pre-assembled structure.
The rooms are built in a workshop. The hotel is built like a Meccano® which is mounted with the prefabricated parts.
The structure is removable and expandable so that it can be updated as the needs arise on site.
The idea of the hotel is part of a franchise. With this exibility the aim is to exchange modules between dierent locations
as is needed.
