The starting point of this project was an urban-archeological work. We found a building in complete decadence, formerly called Hotel Jardín Amazonas. A couple of images from its splendorous times caught our attention, mainly by the central courtyard, that figured an oasis within the city, among the 70´s decor, the artificial grass mat and the clothing of the people who were photographed while sunbathing by the pool. Nothing remained from that hotel apart from the typical structure of a motel. In this process, apart from removing and showing the different layers, we decided to add some potential elements that could give cohesion and unity to the project. The central courtyard becomes the busiest public space, having the restaurant all around. The lattice of concrete blocks connects with these aims of spatial relationships, but also provides privacy and enriches the journey to the rooms.
