SJO Airport Hotel
SJO Airport Hotel, situated in front of Juan Santamaría International Airport, is an embodiment of urban revitalization and environmental awareness in Costa Rica.
Located on a site that formerly hosted a gas station, the project commenced with an essential decontamination process. This transformation from a polluted space into the location for a 110-room select services hotel highlights an innovative approach to remediation and land use.
The ground floor, adjacent to the General Cañas Highway, offers a welcoming space with a restaurant, bar, lounges, and store. The design ensures a seamless transition from travel to relaxation.
Moreover, the project includes trees and green areas, replacing what was previously an all-asphalt parking lot. This addition of greenery contributes to the visual appeal and underscores a commitment to sustainability.
The underground level accommodates a gym, administration, and BOH services. Levels 2 to 6 house bedrooms that provide vistas of the Alajuela Mountains, artfully designed to offer comfort and elegance.
The facade consists of a beige stucco grid, accented with seated-back checkered wood and glass panels, and rounded corners, symbolizing a harmony of efficiency and grace.
SJO Airport Hotel represents an efficient design that blends proportion and quality with an environmental ethos. Through the integration of decontamination efforts and green spaces, the project exemplifies modern architectural principles.
This carefully planned undertaking, with its appealing views and unique features, marks a thoughtful approach to hotel architecture. By merging aesthetic considerations with functional needs, it reflects a dedication to sustainability and urban transformation. The Hospitality Consultant is Grupo Consutur
