For this hotel located on Paseo Juan Carlos I in the city of Ibiza, the Madrid practice of Silvia Colmenares Vilata renovated an existing 1,512-square-meter building and added a 1,945-square-meter construction.
Various volumes are integrated into the rear zone of the original stepped section, in compliance with the requirement that the setbacks increase with the height of the construction.
