The renovation of an obsolete hotel in the small and economically depressed city of Badajoz (Spain), undertakes the difficult challenge of coexistence of uses (hotel, restaurants, nightclub and casino) and explore a bold reinvention of the concept of luxury. A global "black background" will be repeated to bring out with great power a series of specific resources in artificial LED light and its possibilities. It is nightlife and leisure that this interior summons, and with them a great explosion of curvilinear flashes of golden light drawn throughout the spaces. Through these resources, a large atrium allows an ecstatic play of light and reflections in which they lose the notion of space, and perhaps that of time as well. The lighting system was designed from scratch and custom made by the architects, who designed a very flexible aluminum profile elements able to be bent three-dimensionally in order to be adapted to all the curves of the interior. 90% of the elements were able to be prefabricated and installed on site which allowed an extremely fast construction that took only six months.
