OOIIO Architecture shared with us 'Unbalance Hotel', their latest project for a landmark hotel and congress building in Lima, Perú. Located in a city which is currently enjoying a constant growth, the interesting topography is what the architects decided to take advantage of to start the hotel design. The outstanding building silhouette immediately grabs pedestrian’s attention and it becomes an actual landmark for the more than 8 million inhabitants of Lima, and the whole country of Peru. More images and architects' description after the break.

We have designed this singular hotel for a Latin American promoter interested in creating a unique, innovative and worldwide recognizable building with a moderate investment. The plot is located in front of the Pacific Ocean, in a quiet area outside of the city center, hanging on a cliff with a relative height that appears due to the proximity of the Andes to the Pacific Ocean.

A hotel with these characteristics and dimensions constructed in a traditional way would be a visual barrier, so we bet on a frame building that hosts a huge program that could block the ocean´s view, but thanks to its peculiar shape, the landscape is now even more relevant, we have framed it! And the observer will appreciate both, sea and land through our building.

The building has 125 rooms but there are an important percentage dedicated to restaurants, conference rooms, meeting rooms, exhibitions, etc. the unique building´s shape will be the perfect “frame” to attract people and activities into it. This hotel achieves an extra profitability due to the surprising, interesting and original design.
