KNOW MORE ABOUT THE DESIGNERS:
The project is carried out in a building situated in one of the most typical avenues of Santander and experiences a priviledged location with magnificent views of the bay. With almost a century old, the construction has been intended throughout its history to the teaching use, being in origin a school, later a university center and ultimately, a nursery.
With this mediation, a conversion is proposed to transform it into a residential public space, but is it a hotel or a student residence? The answer is “both”, since it serves as a residence during the university academic course and as a tavern during the summer.
