Vivood Lanscape Hotel, Alicante
VIVOOD Landscape Hotels, a pioneering network of sustainable holiday destinations, designed and managed by architects, opened the first landscape hotel in Spain. The modular architecture blends into the landscape, and everything is designed with one aim in mind: to enable guests to get away from it all. The unique project is set in the unspoilt Valley of Guadalest, a stunning spot just 50 minutes from Alicante, Spain.
For exterior lighting of the entire hotel, adjustable low consumption bollards, Sitra 360L SLV by Grupo MCI, were installed. The luminaires guides guests around the site at night but have no environmental impact and cause no light pollution due to the adjustable heads that allows you to direct the light and create the desired effect.
In addition, this type of bollard help to enhance the depth and character of the vegetation of the complex creating a mystical and welcoming to customers who are staying at the hotel surroundings.
In the rooms Plastra Cube wall luminaires are placed. These luminaires provide direct/indirect light and are made of plaster, which allow the luminaires once installed can be painted with the same color as the wall fitting perfectly in space.
The hotel provides all the comforts of a luxury hotel in a completely natural setting by using innovative modular architecture. The result is 25 independent suites, a restaurant and lounge bar, a panoramic swimming pool and several terraces and private outdoor hot tubs, all nestled in the heart of nature.
Each and every aspect of the concept - the site, the landscape, the views, the architecture, the interior design, the swimming pool and the hot tubs - has been selected to create a captivating hotel with an enchanting aura. A pure ambience of silence and tranquility where you can get away from it all: a real differential value.
VIVOOD is a place where you can leave the world behind, based on the basic premise of the Landscape hotel concept:
1.Direct, physical and visual contact with the surroundings. This is achieved with the enormous windows in each of the modular bedrooms and common buildings, not only in the main room but in the bathroom.
2.By fostering a feeling of isolation and exclusivity. To achieve this, the guest accommodation consists of independent modules arranged in a spacious, open, natural area, each surrounded by at least 1,500 square metres of land.
3.Modules are positioned on the land without changing its topography, and anchored to the ground using an innocuous, reversible foundation system.
4.The landscape in the area is conserved and restored using local plants and trees.
5.The architectural design is such that each room is independent and separate, allowing guests to enjoy their surroundings in privacy. Access to the accommodation is by way of at the back of the units, from which nobody can see inside the buildings.
6.Rooms are laid out along a central ‘backbone' that branches out into the different paths for exclusive use of guests accommodated in each unit, to ensure absolute peace and quiet.
7.The project has been built using sustainable materials and techniques and blends beautifully into the environment. The main building materials used are wood and black Viroc.
8.Outside lighting. The entire hotel is installed with low consumption ambient lighting controlled with low spots of light. These guide guests around the site at night but have no environmental impact and cause no light pollution.
