Service areas and low cost hotels on the highway

Building with three programmes: low-cost hotel, 2 cafes, 2 shops

The project addresses the Hotel and Restaurant product with a very high value for money, an excellent €/m2 ratio in the project investment spreadsheet and cost reduction in subsequent maintenance. The hotel was designed with 50 rooms, two shops, and two café-restaurants on both sides of the highway. An architectural proposal was created based on low-cost solutions hidden behind complex systems of highway customer service.
