In a magical mountain site, between "Abu Gosh" and "Har Adar", stands an old building which started as a sanatorium and is now abandoned. The Entrepreneur who bought the property was asking to transform the building into a modern spa hotel that shall host visitors for relaxation and health vacations.
Our goal was clear but hard to achieve- adjusting the building to contemporary hotel standards despite the old structures, and changing the design so it will be suited to the new project approach. The narrow rooms were designed in a horizontal concept that should give a large feel to the room. The bathrooms are planned to be transparent, and by that allows the room to seem even bigger. The room is oriented to the Jerusalem Mountains through a new and large balcony. The material and colors palette consisting of oak parquet, bright wood furniture, white bricks and a touch of smoked relaxing colors, was designed around the spirit of the spa hotel. On the suites floor, we combined 2 historical rooms to a large and spacious suite.
