Winners of ‘Cala San Miguel Hotels’ Ideas Competition in Ibiza
The Ideas Competition, promoted by Real Estate San Miguel SA, have as a single objective The Hotel Complex ‘Puerto San Miguel’ in Ibiza through the complete refurbishing and rebuilding of its three Hotels: Galeón, Cartago and San Miguel. The conceptual commitment of the Competition, called ‘Mediterraneally’, it is translated as an authentic Mediterranean experience, away from other overcrowded places in Ibiza, that revolves around the views, the enjoyment of the Mediterranean Sea and its calm, gastronomy and landscapes.
The winning design, by AIA Activitats Instal·lacions Arquitectòniques in collaboration with Romano Arquitectos, proposes the restoration and redesign of the Hotels so as to maintain their use but providing value to the complex; improving itineraries, diversifying public areas and providing better quality spaces to stay and contemplate the place. Currently, with a fragmented landscape, the design expects to reconnect and reintegrate the buildings into the environment, generating a harmonic fabric and reinforcing the typical coastal vegetation strip. A design with Mediterranean essence, island identity and constructive sincerity.
