Indoor pool for the hotel Castell Dels Hams in Majorca, Spain.

A2arquitectos as Architects

In 1967, a small hotel, Hotel Castell dels Hams, was established on the island of Majorca amid the Mediterranean vegetation. Over time, and through subtle improvements and extensions. The last of the alterations, meant to celebrate the Mediterranean light and the location's idyllic bond with nature, turned the hotel into much more than just a holiday destination. The work centred on replacing the covering and enclosure of the existing heated pool. The main pool area is adorned with a series of square openings for windows in the roof that allow the light to flood into the area. The pool was originally connected to what was once considered the back of the hotel, where it was confined to a space that was clearly being wasted. The challenge of the project was not only to stop the new areas from being used as secondary features, but to ensure they were used to highlight the hotel's sunniest facade.
