Architecture of Hotel Santiago de Cuba
Architect: José Antonio Choy
The Hotel Santiago de Cuba Occupies a built area of 27 800 m2.
The building of the Hotel Santiago de Cuba is solved with a metallic structure in tower and basement, the image avoids the conventional appearance of this hotel topology. The tower was designed in 15 levels, 12 of them dedicated to the lodging and in the end, a bar viewpoint with visual toward a wide environment of the city and the landscape of the mountains.
The basement contains the public, commercial and gastronomic functions, as well as the administration locals and services, most of which are developed around an interior patio and throughout having traveled by a serpentine gallery that takes to the external areas and the pool.
he image of the Hotel Santiago de Cuba tries to achieve a strong relationship with the immediate and mediate context of the city of Santiago de Cuba whose architectural tradition has stayed through the time in narrow symbiosis with its specially uneven geography, in which the landscape is defined for the presence of the sea Caribbean, seen at times, and Sierra's Teacher profile.
