Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Spain
Designed by Zooco Estudio, Flamingo Club Hotel embraces different proceedings in a hotel resort located in Tenerife’s southern area, in the Canary Islands.
Miguel Crespo Picot, Sixto Martín Martínez and Javier Guzmán Benito of Zooco Estudio were recently awarded a 2020 European 40 Under 40® Award from The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies and The Chicago Athenaeum.
The project has been built in different phases, as a consequence of this multiple renovations, the complex has a mixture of different finishing touches, furniture and decoration elements that used to generate a messy image and an undefined style for the company.
The resort has been built in different stages, with different scale procedures and ignoring at the beginning the real magnitude of the hole renovation, but with a clear idea from the very beginning: clearing up the pre-existence and recover the Flamingo’s Hotel lost identity: elegance, wellness and exclusivity.
For this, the white color is used as a base, the bamboo, the basalt stone – vernacular mineral from the area- and the glass, combined with punctual colorful elements and emphasizing the “Flamingo.” This way, a Master Plan is settled for future interventions.
The main building is also the access building and it encloses different uses as the hall, the lobby, the bar, the restaurant, a commerce, public areas and hotel rooms; and as the rest of the complex it had suffered a mixed fusion of styles that now have been cleaned with this master plan.
The team has designed an extension in its east-south-west corner; the aim of this extension is to generate a transition between the organic and the regular facade that at once generates a wall ending in the south facade.
