Appreciation towards  Álvaro Siza for providing the following description:


The hotel occupies part of the existing football pitch and seems to fit into the hill on the Southside. The volume spreads out amidst the greenery outside.

With two stories and in the form of a “U”, the organization is simple: the bedrooms are located in the two almost identical legs and at their junction are the service areas and the social spaces.
