This is a super posh hotel, so the theatricality is to be expected. And what stunning theatricality it is, in a kind of ‘walk on water’ sort of way.
In overall form it’s not all that dissimilar from Louis Kahn’s Salk Institute, with a row of angular forms creating an axis, highlighted by a water feature, and open to the sea. Though certainly heightened here by making the entirety of the axis the water feature, and the forms all that more bold (and, at night, colourful!) Plus the addition of a bird’s nest…
A neat mix of architecture creating spatial art. I dig it.
