Don Majestic Hotel is a new Hotel in Punta del Este, Uruguay.
The main requirement for the design of the hotel was to try to build an innovative architecture, with a singular and unique shape.

Singularity and uniqueness are the main concepts that have guided the creation of the Hotel. For the design, the Architects got inspired by nature, by the curves of nature.

The studio designed a sculptural curved piece of architecture.

To obtain and materialize the sculptural shape of the building, with floor plans that vary in size, the studio has designed a very exceptional engineering structure, with a unique central pillar in the core of the building

An essential architectural aspect of the hotel is the Skin of the building.
The essence of the sculptural shape is the curve, it has been crucial for the design to install curved glasses in the whole building.

The architects have designed the hotel with creativity, with poetic, with courage and with passion, looking for the creation of an innovative piece of architecture, an architectural Jewel, an Icon.
Looking for that moment when architecture transcend itself. Trying to express poetic in its architecture.
