New swimming pools, gardens, and solariums for the Hotel Jardín del Sol.

Jardin del Sol Hotel is located on the coastline of Calvià in Mallorca. This unique location presents an opportunity to carry out a project to improve the exterior areas, creating a new exclusive and unique product within the hotel itself.

The east side of the building was suitable for improvements as it was unused and in an elevated position with respect to the rest of the exterior areas. The project was conceived taking advantage of this difference in level: a series of terraces that cascade down to the sea creating different mixed areas of vegetation, paved and water areas.

This staggered arrangement allows each area to have privacy from the other and enjoy the views and sun without interruption.

The pools are conceived as one more terrace, overflowing and looking for the visual union with the sea. The general concept also creates a topography within the pool itself, separating 3 areas: a first area with a higher water temperature where you can find a jacuzzi, a solarium-beach within the water and the main pool with more depth for bathing. All the areas within the same basin of water, creating different experiences within the pool itself.

The materiality of the project seeks the fusion with the landscape of Mallorca: the different levels are conceived as terraces, "marges", being all the walls made of dry stone and the pavement of the terraces of wood or stone from Binissalem.

The color of the pool seeks to merge with the blue of the Mediterranean Sea and the gardens are designed with local species integrating into the existing pine forest.
