HELIOS HOTEL MAIN ACCESS AND HALL REMODELLING

JAS ARQUITECTURA as Architects

Hotel building dating back from early 70’s and that has been operating 100% ever since its opening day. A first intervention in the main Access as well as in the Hall was needed. This first intervention represents the first step of a long road of different reforms that will end up remodelling the whole hotel. This first intervention is vital since, on the one hand, it will determine the future development of the following reforms, but at the same time, it should function as an independent and autonomous intervention. The intervention is conceived as an free-standing volumen, a White composite coated volumen, in which the limit beetween the covered Main Access (porch) and the Hall are no easy to distinguish.


The porch opens itself up to the main entrance from the street, inviting access. Through a set of volumes that plays with lighting and the appropriate layout of the topography, terraces and access spaces are generated, making it difficult to distinguish inside, outside, public and private.


Inside the hall, due to the relatively small scale of the intervention, we have tried to keep as many possible pre-existing elements, such as the pavement. The decoration has been treated from a functional point of view, so that remains the same language used in the outside and different compositional volumes are adapted to the pre-existing installations which are not changed.
