Tenerife is an island of the Atlantic Ocean which belongs to the Canary Islands archipelago. With a land area of 2,035 square kilometres and 894,700 inhabitants, it is the largest island in the archipelago and the most populated island in Spain.

It is characterized by its diversity, climate and authenticity. An island with an unique charm that has served for many years as a quality tourist spot for many national and international visitors.

Many hotel corporations have shown their interest in setting their establishments and providing tourists with attractive stays on the island.

Given this context, Spring Hotels Group has recently acquired a plot of 62,000 square meters for building a new hotel of 525 rooms, in one of the main areas in expansion of Arona, tourist municipality south of Tenerife, where the other three hotels of the chain are located.

The future project will concentrate building on the north and east side of the plot in order to have the maximum free space possible for developing the proposals of this Spring Hotels Design Challenge.

The objective of the present competition for students of architecture and young architects, Spring Hotels Design Challenge, consists in proposing a unique and spectacular landscape that must make of the hotel’s outdoor areas an iconic space that, thanks to the quality of the design, its uniqueness and the experiences that it will propose, becomes the main actor in attracting and awaking the desire of future customers.

An attractive leisure space containing different activities that provide clients with a unique experience in the tourist business. A place of reference in the current tourist scene.

The challenge is to emphasise the magnitude of the plot and transform this big outdoor area into the element that makes the hotel a unique place of reference in the Canary Islands.
