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, it has become one of the most distinctive hotels
on the eastern part of the island.
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 and to create an adjacent spa to supplement it.
During development, the project was split into two independent zones, each
designed to suit its own specific purpose.
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 spa intended for skin
treatments and relaxation is located to give the visitors the best views of the
surrounding landscape and is also filled with light in all rooms where light is
The placement of the two zones makes them meet at a single point where one
faces the other, so that they are interlinked. This gives access to both
through the hotel lobby, which is connected to the main pool 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. Now completed, the roof  is dotted with windows. This
interplay of window holes in the roof  creates a beautiful dance of light
reflections inside The existing pool has got new facades and a new green roof,
which is dotted with a series of square openings. This interplay of window
holes creates a beautiful dance of light reflections in the building.
In the spa area, the space is sculpted and colourful showers of light flow
through the openings in the roof. This makes the building itself part of the
treatment, offering the feeling of well-being created by nature when it is
introduced into the building, a feeling of total immersion for the visitor.

  1. 光感很棒啊,很醉人,不过最后那种SPA的感觉,隔着一整面玻璃看风景,如果能有点自然风就更爽啦。

  2. 他们的墙壁和楼板层为什么这么厚?
