Albeida Tourist Complex in Outes (A Coruña)

Salgado e Liñares 


Winner of the 2020 National Award for Architecture, given by the CSCAE (Spanish Association of Architecture Institutes), the Albeida complex built by the Galician practice of Alfonso Salgado Suárez and Francisco Liñares Túñez is located at the source of the Muros i Noia estuary, in the parish of San Cosme de Outeiro, which is part of Outes, a municipality of A Coruña province.

Encompassing a built area of 185.7 square meters, the project refurbishes three traditional buildings – formerly containing a residence and a recording studio – and adds nine wooden cabins to the new hotel facilities. Preserving the privacy of guests and their views of the mouth of the Tambre River and the Barbanza mountains, the intervention unfolds from the idea of conserving existing vegetation and incorporating existing constructions. The supports of the light lodgings are integrated with the terrain without damaging the roots of the trees, establishing a dialogue between natural and artificial.
