佛得角共和国位于西非海岸，圣维森特岛是该国众多岛屿中的一个。Ramos Castellano Arquitectos日前完成了位于该岛的酒店综合体项目。业主是一位法国的徒步旅行向导，他买下了一栋位于市中心外围的旧时殖民住宅，并期望建筑师将其打造为酒店，使游客们能够以此为起点去探索附近的小岛。
Cabo Verde is an isolated country located off the coast of western Africa. On São Vicente, one of Cabo Verde’s ten islands, where local architecture firm Ramos Castellano Architects has completed a hotel complex for a french trekking guide. The client had purchased a old colonial house on the outskirts of the town center, and asked the architects to develop a hotel for tourists who want to explore the nearby island of santo antão, using the historic property as a starting point.

▼综合体被分为几个独立的单元，the complex’s separate units were adapted to the existing terrain
By using the same implantation philosophy of the surrounding buildings, Ramos Castellano arquitectos adapted the complex’s separate units to the existing terrain. Designed in response to the sun’s path throughout the day, each block is oriented to face a different view of the island — from the city to the bay. The breakfast-bar building has been positioned to shield the site from the strong winds that blow in from the sahara desert. All rooms at the Terra lodge hotel, promote cross ventilation and passive climatization strategies.

As the remote island has a lack of material and resources, the architects sought to simplify the design as much as possible. From the floor finishes to the furniture, many of the elements that make up the scheme are handmade and have been crafted by local people. Wood has been used for the buildings’ gridded verandahs, while lime putty has been used to clad the hotel’s brilliant white structures. From an environmental standpoint, roofs feature photovoltaic panels, while water is re-used on site for irrigation. Recycled materials have also been used throughout the design. While the surrounding buildings contain 12 hotel rooms plus a suite, the colonial house now contains the premises of the client’s tourist agency. On its roof is a terrace where guests can enjoy a daily breakfast and views out onto the bay.
