zooco estudio‘s flamingo club is a hotel resort located in the southern area of tenerife, in the canary islands, comprising a series of irregular, terraced buildings on a 105500 sqft (9801 sqm) lot. the spanish studio has renovated the entire project, which was built in different stages and thus had acquired ‘a messy image and undefined style’, bringing back its original identity of elegance, wellness, and exclusivity.

to unify the mixture of styles and forms of the flamingo club, zooco estudio has chosen white as a base color, together with bamboo, basalt stone – vernacular mineral from the area- and glass, combining them with punctual colorful elements and emphasizing the playful character of the ‘flamingo’. the main building of the resort, which encloses the lobby, the bar, the restaurant, a shop, public areas and hotel rooms, also suffered a mixed fusion of styles that now have been cleaned with the new master plan.zooco estudio's flamingo club hotel in tenerife combines bamboo, basalt stone + white hues

 

 

the main building’s east and south façades have organic forms, while its west elevation is more regular and orthogonal. zooco estudio has designed an extension in its east-south-west corner, with the aim to generate a transition between the organic and the regular façade that at once creates a wall ending in the south facade. this extension follows the nature of the existing architecture but cleans its ornaments and generates pure horizontal lines, creating a mass and void perception -materialized in mass and glass. different functions of the main building. include a shop in the semi-basement level, a restaurant at the ground floor, and a covered sun deck in the first floor.
