From analysis of the client, the area where the hotel is situated and the people who frequent it, we concluded that it would be appropriate to create a space that was related to culture, art and leisure. Based on this and on the hotel's original name, Cristal Palace, a construction that allowed a visual continuity between interior and exterior and in which glass interacts in interesting ways with the sun, a mixed space was conceptualised: hotel + exhibitions and events gallery.  It is designed in a way to be a tribute to its name, where the protagonists are transparencies, semi-transparencies and light. Glass, light and colour, their characteristics and different interactions, between themselves and with the human body, are used to produce sensations in each space.
