The specific location and context of the building mean an incredible opportunity to become the hotel a potential landmark. Near one of the most important business spots in the region, target costumers may be oriented to this sector. Nevertheless, our work has taken into account not only the most specific place, but also the incredible and forgotten natural surroundings of the Mountains of Madrid, better known as the “Sierra de Madrid”. Geometries, colours and plants from the Mountains of Madrid mean the basic inspiration for this landscape design. The identity of the project comes out from the dual context of the location. This way, the Mountains of Madrid have become an inspirational reference for the natural side of the project, while speed and vibration from urban spots have defined the exterior image of the building. A rift connects and at the same time divides the two main room volumes of the building. This allows the connection among the two realities of the building: the natural and the urban ones.
