This huge project and restoration which has taken place at Costa Adeje Suites was a great challenge and opportunity for Alfaro-Manrique due to the magnitude of this building located in the best area of Tenerife, to be able to carry out a great repositioning of the brand by generating a new concept which helps it grow into a new category. This new concept will also help us create two spaces with different audience (adults and families), but same guidelines.
The design and concept created around the Costa Adeje Suites Hotel is based on its tropical surroundings, its relationship with the location, the strength of the Tenerife coast. The vegetation from this place is a key point to our design; green colours from the plants which blend to a blue palette related to the ocean, confronted towards tones which come from the Canary terrain such as grey scales from the sand and ochre and earthy tones from the rocks.
We use a design related to the natural Canary landscape, with its colour range, its strength and scale of the natural surroundings, to create and conceive a concept of limit between land and ocean. This concept will follow us fully throughout the whole project, from the outside to the inside, giving value to the nature you can find around and inside the building. Nevertheless, it will be differentiated using different tones to classify the two main audiences from the hotel. In one side we count on tones and textures related to the ocean, based on blue and aquamarine tones; whilst on the other side we find the relationship to the earth and land from the islands resulting in more brownish and earthy tones.
The huge volumetrics that creates the geometry of the building, with the characteristic of open corridors, is emphasized thanks again to the use of colour by using a plain white colour on the facades and grey tones (which relate to basalt) used for the communication lobbies and nuclei. This will help us give the hotel a vibrant and unique touch with a rhythm and logic identified with the surroundings.
The use of exterior vegetation in the interior spaces, and eliminating the limits between architecture and landscape is something which we will see happening throughout the common areas of the hotel, specially in the nucleus of the hotel in which we can find the lobby and a meeting area for the users, an area where materials such as the basalt from the façade starts to be used to create a relationship between the exterior and interior of the hotel. These common areas show a geometrization of natural shapes which gives the space a more classy and elegant character. This is also thanks to the use of local woods and other materials already mentioned such as basalt, handmade ceramics, fibres, and textiles all in search for a great environment.
Inside the lobby and due to the huge glass walls, which allow the natural light to enter the building, a new space is created recreating a greenhouse which serves as a meeting and social point that counts with two long benched created thanks to wooden profiles with curved and straight areas which allow the light beams to enter the space creating irregular shapes.
Regarding the interior design and always with the objective of creating a unique experience, several design resources appear. Some of them are the design of elements explicitly for the spaces of this hotel, the reinterpretation of the large ceiling as vernacular interiors in consonance with nature, textiles and formal resources related to local history and handmade ceramics which give an authentic sensation to the space. All these resources are used in a sensible way to keep far away from an oversaturated design.
The hotel has a great asset as it counts with many social and dinning areas, which, at the same time, count on terraces and exterior areas. This spaces have been treated following a design guideline (the same as for the rest of the building) but with a personal touch for each of them. We will continue to see the presence of vegetation and the colours and geometries offered by the ceramics we have used.
The rooms, all of them suites, are closed from the public, giving it a more personal and private touch. Nevertheless, we will see the relationship between the interior and exterior throughout the use of vegetation on the terraces, offering the user a space of calmness and comfort. This aspect is also given thanks to the use of woods, coverings made from linen, the use of fibre lamps, ceramics on the headrest of the bed and green ceramics used throughout the bathroom; all together giving a touch of tropicality and Canary tradition.
The furniture used throughout the project has been mainly designed by Alfaro-Manrique Atelier, except for the chairs, armchairs, and exterior furniture for the pools. The lighting design for this project, as it always is one of our greatest design assets, has been a great challenge, as we always search for the most exclusive designs as for example, we can see on both pendant lamps which lie on top of the lobby tables or also the “Danaus Lamp” another great design developed by Emili Manrique, being one of our best known designs.
