In the midst of an imposing landscape, with the powerful presence of the north-west wind (the Cierzo), this hotel is conceived as a succession of comfortable, sheltered indoor spaces from which to contemplate the exterior. The architecture, interior spaces and landscape design seek to draw the visitor towards the rural character and to the strange beauty of the austere landscape, by providing simple, generous and silent spaces.
The overall building is composed of a series of simple monochromatic cubic structures. Their scattered arrangement provides views through the interstitial spaces, reducing its massive appearance to a minimum and generating an animated play of light and shadow.
The treatment of the exterior spaces is a transposition of the characteristic forms, colours and vegetation of the Bardenas desert and the surrounding irrigation fields: orderly plantations of fruit trees, vegetable gardens and scattered aromatic plants such as rosemary and thyme. The ground is covered with local granite-rich earth. Boulders extracted from the site act as a horizontal fence and mark the boundary between the wheat field and the hotel.
