A portrait of timeless design
Spain - San Sebastián, Gipuzkoa
Significantly ecological and at the same time technological and innovative design choices: this is the spirit that defines the Hotel Akelarre. Opened in the summer of 2017, the complex integrates and completes a restaurant of the same name located a few kilometres from the centre of San Sebastian and overlooking a panoramic hillside location on the Bay of Biscay coast. Five volumes of stone grafted onto the spine of the hill, which house 22 suites, all overlooking the azure sea.
Stone, wood, and metal, natural and timeless materials still linked to tradition, are interwoven with artistic installations and designer furnishings. Maximum care and precision characterise every detail, from the choice of materials, to the way they are juxtaposed, to the finishing touches.
Within this context, CEA bathroom fittings have been installed, whose clean and rigorous design completes and enhances the bathroom decor and is accompanied by the quality of AISI 316L steel, a material that reflects the idea of inspirational sustainability for the entire project.
