Situated on Santa Maria beach in Sal Island, Cape Verde, Hotel Belorizonte is one of the first hotel structures in the area, which apart of the main building, has 170 bungalows that will be renewed for this new faze.
The proposal wishes to redistribute the bungalow functional areas, ensuring that a new seating area is promoted, which can be used has sleeping area for children.
Has a result of this intention, two separate toilet and bath volumes, split by an area of sink that communicates directly with the room, occupies the background of bungalow.
Glass walls with veneer shutters where simultaneously used as separation of these spaces to the room`s main space, ensuring natural light in the bathroom areas, and depth field in the bedroom area.
All the bedroom area was studied with a set of simple storage solutions, in order to monetize all the small spaces where functions can be hosted.
The presented solution seeks to solve all the areas with a minimum of materials, all within the same key logic of cutting all possible and excessive vibration, in such a small space.
