First prize


The project “Tenerife at Home” storytells the singular landscape of the Canary Archipelago where Tenerife island is a very important and representative part of it, starting a journey through its great landmarks; The Islands, the Volcano, Bufaderos, Oasis, Beaches, Whirlpools.... Bringing and adapting them into a new and very comfortable gently landscape, allowing every leisure activity occur “at Home”while at the same time, meeting the identity of Tenerife in a playful, unexplored and very immersive expereince of the local landscape.

Second prize


The maritime culture was always an important element of Tenerife's history, which is obviously a common characteristic of an island. However, as Tenerife is the most important part of the Canary Islands, its geographical location contributes to this cultural reality. Since the end of the medieval period, ships have mostly used Tenerife as a stopover on voyages between Europe and the Americas. In contemporary times, the touristic attraction of Tenerife adds another dimension to this situation.

Third prize


Tabaiba es una palabra de origen guanche usada para definir a una de las plantas autóctonas más características de Tenerife, procedente del ecosistema tabaibal-cardonal de la zona costera. Un paisaje único y singular que se configura como símbolo, como icono… al igual que este hotel debe ser un referente en su tipología por su diferencia y exclusividad. Con este concepto, proponemos un espacio orgánico y fluido que se adapta a los cambios de pendiente generando distintos ambientes y atmósferas.

Tenerife is an island of the Atlantic Ocean which belongs to the Canary Islands archipelago. With a land area of 2,035 square kilometres and 894,700 inhabitants, it is the largest island in the archipelago and the most populated island in Spain.

It is characterized by its diversity, climate and authenticity. An island with an unique charm that has served for many years as a quality tourist spot for many national and international visitors.

Many hotel corporations have shown their interest in setting their establishments and providing tourists with attractive stays on the island.

Given this context, Spring Hotels Group has recently acquired a plot of 62,000 square meters for building a new hotel of 525 rooms, in one of the main areas in expansion of Arona, tourist municipality south of Tenerife, where the other three hotels of the chain are located.

The future project will concentrate building on the north and east side of the plot in order to have the maximum free space possible for developing the proposals of this Spring Hotels Design Challenge.

The objective of the present competition for students of architecture and young architects, Spring Hotels Design Challenge, consists in proposing a unique and spectacular landscape that must make of the hotel’s outdoor areas an iconic space that, thanks to the quality of the design, its uniqueness and the experiences that it will propose, becomes the main actor in attracting and awaking the desire of future customers.

An attractive leisure space containing different activities that provide clients with a unique experience in the tourist business. A place of reference in the current tourist scene.

The challenge is to emphasise the magnitude of the plot and transform this big outdoor area into the element that makes the hotel a unique place of reference in the Canary Islands.

The following prizes will be awarded to the proposals that best meet the purpose of the competition:

1st Prize
2,000 euro + a two-day stay at one of the chain’s hotels.

2nd Prize
1,000 euro + a two-day stay at one of the chain’s hotels.

3st Prize
500 euro + a two-day stay at one of the chain’s hotels.
