CABO HOTEL – Stepped Frame
For a new hotel project, we were given a site one block away from the main marina of Cabo San Lucas Mexico, and a hotel room cell to consider. With these two elements we considered that if the typical scheme of a hotel is based on a corridor with two sides of rooms, by opening up this corridor to reach the site limits a new framed void is created. We then stepped again the two rooms´ blocks, now vertically to create sun terraces for every room. The two wings would join again in a different manner, forming a stepped void as the most important space holding the project.
The ground floor of the project accommodates common programs as well as main outdoor areas –lobby, lounge, restaurant, garden; while the several stepped floors lodge the 82 rooms of the hotel, and the roof at the south section allocates an open sun terrace with a swimming pool and bar.
