Text description provided by the architects. Located in the Virgin of Guadalest Valley, an environment of high scenic value 50 minutes from Alicante, VIVOOD Landscape Hotels, the pioneering network of sustainable design tourist destinations inaugurated the first landscape hotel of our country this summer. It has been a challenge both architecturally, in terms of the landscape, as well as at the services level.
A challenge that begun by offering all the comforts of a luxury hotel in the middle of nature, as well as innovating with a modular architecture integrated with the landscape, through its 25 independent suites, a restaurant, lounge bar, a panoramic pool, and many terraces and private exterior jacuzzis.
Thus, VIVOOD is consolidated as a new hotel chain designed and managed by architects, preoccupied with the creation of spaces focused on the design of a new concept, an experience for the future guest who will live that place. A place of avoidance for the traveller who seeks new sensations of calm and exclusivity.
All the elements integrated into the concept, from the surroundings, the landscape, the views, the architecture, the interiors, the pool, to the jacuzzis, have been designed with the aim of building a hotel with special charm. The most pure, silent and tranquil environment to achieve avoidance: its true added value.
VIVOOD arises as a place for disconnecting, and is projected based on the basic premises of the Landscape Hotel concept:
1.Seeking a direct, physical and visual contact with the environment, which is possible thanks to the large windows laid out on each of the built modules, including common area buildings as well as bedrooms, and both in the main room as well as the bathroom.
2.Fostering a sense of privacy and seclusion. To do this, the rooms are materialized as independent modules and scattered in a vast unbounded natural environment, where each has an associated area of no less than 1500 m2.
3.The modules are arranged without altering the terrain topography, impacting it in a limited way through a system of noninvasive and reversible foundations.
4.We preserve and restore the site landscaping using native vegetation.
5.The architectural design of the hotel has been developed in order to promote the independence and individuality of each of its rooms, from which to contemplate the landscape without being seen. Thus, they can be accessed from the roads arranged in the back, where no one can see inside the accommodation.
6.The urban layout of the rooms is developed around a central spine which articulates the different paths and sets the different exclusive guest paths of these modules, ensuring maximum silence.
7.The project is implemented through the use of sustainable building systems and successfully integrated with the environment, emphasizing the use and combination of wood and black viroc.
8.Control of outdoor lighting. The entire hotel is designed with indirect low consumption lighting, controlled with low light points. They are guiding elements in the night but do not affect the environment nor produce light pollution.
