This building was initially conceived for the Ancon spa, in Lima, Peru, as it usually happens with many orders, unfortunately the construction did not come to fruition however the project itself. The project originally tried to combine two orders that flow into the Peruvian coastal reality: on the one hand the terraces and all the feeling of the dunes and the color of the hill. On the other hand, the Modernity that entered the city in the 1950s and transformed a beautiful and peaceful spa into a kind of small-scale Copacabana. And as a result of this we recieved a call from Brazil, Rio de Janeiro, where a developer saw our building thanks to one of our partners. He would like to know if we may repeat that experience (the same language, the same style, the same proportion and color for a hotel in his country). Immediately we started to recycle it to see if it fit in the new terrain and we were able to do it. It is one of those cases in which, as Koolhaas said, ideas are not lost, they are only relocated (like the Oporto Auditorium) and so what was going to be a wonderful housing building will probably turn into a beautiful hotel next year overlooking the Bay of Leblond in Copacabana.
