First Floor Puerta America Hotel
brings together 19 of the world's finest designers. Each of the 12 floors bears the imprint of a different talent and measures 1300 m2. The only constraint was each had to contain 28 rooms and 2 junior suites. The external structure, a fairly standard rectangular tower block, is developed by SGA Studio. John Pawson for common areas and Jean Nouvel designed the cladding on the facade and the 12th floor. Norman Foster's second floor draws inspiration from the palette of the Basque sculptor Eduardo Chillida. David Chipperfield’s 3th floor has hand-made floorings, and white marble to invoke luxury and privacy. Zaha Hadid designed the first floor which is characterized by sinuous lines and fluidity. She states she has been able to create a different architectural language. Based on the new developments introduced by digital design and enhanced by today's production capabilities, the aim was to create fluid space.
