Extension of an existing hotel.

Location: Arta Terme, Italy
Status: Initial design
Delivery: March 2010
Total area: 1500 m2
Project team: M. Tepedino, N.Toribio, C.Zappulla

The client was the owner of a hotel that had been in the family for generations and grown slowly by adding on extensions over time. The brief was to design another extension to cater for the ever-increasing number of wealthy Eastern Europeans coming to the town to visit the spas there. The plot available was set between the hotel and a neighbouring building a good 30m away. The design carefully takes into account the adjacent structures and sympathetically increases in cross-section between one and the other.
