Marlica II is a project that emerges from the success of Marlica Hotel in Manzanillo, which specializes in long stay rooms.
The proposal seeks to dialogue with the existing building of Hotel Marlica through contemporary shapes and by taking advantage sea views.
Through the optimization of a structural module, the project achieves to have as many units as possible in the piece of land.
The structural module becomes part of the architectural language as the formal element that organizes the volume on the façade that faces the sea to have the widest and best possible views.
On the street side, the façade is made with a concrete lattice that gives privacy while allowing the flow of air through all the units.
