The hotel (part G) is made up of a central building divided into 3 irregular parts and 11 more distant and smaller associated parts, articulated in plant and morphology, to create an architectural work characterized by a strong sense of belonging to the territory from a formal point of view. The plan is laid out in a way to homogeneously form different and articulated architectural components, assembling them spontaneously and inserting them harmoniously into the territory according to the orthography and the morphology of the environment.
The architecture, accomplished with elementary geometry, contributes to making the complex identifiable in its simplicity, outside predetermined schemes, but not casual or in conflict with the surrounding landscape. In particular, the area on which the reception will be built presents two different orthographic connotations: a semi flat zone to the south-east on which Unit B of the central body, the parking area and three separate E units. and a zone to the north and west which presents a downward slope toward the southeast side, where the guest rooms for the central body will be realized, grouped together in two units called A and C, six isolated units, D, and two isolated units, F. The complex is served by a direct access to the coastal road Cagliari – Teulada, with adjacent parking areas, and from the street which crosses it lengthwise connecting it on the north to block/unit E1/f, and with another parking area in the southern end of the property.
The project optimizes the access to the normal services and to the open-areas destined to be temporary living areas, with paths that adapt to the land. The hotel structure is articulated in a series of recognizable elements connected to each other by walking paths. The central body is composed of 3 essential parts: Block B designated as the welcoming area, assigned to collective and logistic services, and to the administration and all technical parts; Blocks A and C are mainly the guest rooms. Blocks D, E and F are destined as guest rooms. The isolated units, 11 in all, made up of Units D, E and F, will be rooms. All the groups of buildings are of maximum 2 floors connected functionally by pergolas, porticos and stairways which twist and turn following the natural tendency of the land and are and are connected to each other by walk ways to consent access to each single unit.
The buildings are placed on the land at different heights respecting as much as possible the orthography, and limiting the impact on the surrounding landscape. The receptive cells of various typologies have a room with 2 beds, bathroom, living area, and some have a terrace, or on the ground floor have a private green area. The hotel complex has 178 guest rooms of which 12 are equipped to house the disabled.
