Context

The client was looking for the renovation and adaptation for hotel use of a listed building, acquired in 2013 by the Soldevila Ferrer Family – a member of the Majestic Hotel Group – and located in the central Plaza de Sant Francesc in Palma de Mallorca, into a 5 star hotel for the city.

 

Solution

We were in charge of the technical project’s architecture and engineering, as well as the complete management of the rehabilitation and adaptation of the listed building into hotel use.

The developed architectural project was especially respectful to this neoclassical building, dating back to 1880 and known as Can Alomar by its former owners – a Mallorcan family who made their fortune in the Americas in the past, – as it maintained all the characteristics of the old stately homes of Palma’s old town.

Due to this very special condition, it was necessary for Palma’s City Council and the Consell to agree on all types of protected elements, both internal and external. For this, a multidisciplinary work team was formed that included all the necessary arts (interior designers, landscapers, experts in lighting, recovery of frescoes and works in stone, traditional ceramics, sculptors, archaeologists and historians) that had our the technical coordination.

The result of this effort can be seen today in each and every one of the details that make up its 42 spacious rooms and suites, a panoramic 30 m2 pool, a meeting room with the capacity for 20 people, a restaurant located in the stables of the manor house that can hold up to 70 seats (adding those of the garden and with direct access from the street), a lobby bar, several terraces, patios and a lush garden.
