Wicker Columns

ME Sitges Terramar Hotel

The edifice of Terramar suffered 2 renovations, 1 on top of the other and if normally a building would need to have 10 columns, this one had 20. The design challenge was to convert a problem into an advantage.

 
Every column is thought as a sculpture covered with two types of materials: gypsum and wicker. Half of the columns were covered with wicker, so a touch of warmth would be added to the environment. In order to cover the thinner columns, only 2 wicker modules have been created. For the thicker columns 4 parts were needed made with 2 different molds.
