Hotel rooms without balconies

 

After- new facade wiht balconies made from existing roof structure

 

Adaptive reuse is the cornerstone of green design.  This Hotel in Puerto Rico was renovated to create a greater guest experience. The renovations had several green strategies. First to reuse concrete structure to create balconies by removing the tile roof and forming new patios. Second was connection to the landscape  creating connecting paths and landscape rooms. The third was to connect the guest to the adjacent golf course and Caribbean Sea beyond by opening the facades to the views and creating usable outdoor spaces.
