La Fosca Beach Hotel is a new Rough Luxe hotel in Palamos, Spain. The design comprises a series of spaces to eat, drink and relax offering hotel guests and locals variety and choice throughout the seasons.
Hotel bedrooms are individual ‘tree-house’ pods, the forms of which are derived from the canopies of pine trees typical of this region. These pods would be constructed off-site and each supported in-situ’ by its own set of structural columns.
The variation in height and positioning aims to recreate the forest’s canopy. A driftwood screen between street and hotel provides shade and privacy to the bedrooms from the street. All bedrooms have full-height, south facing glazing that opens onto private terraces which enjoy magnificent views to the sea.
