Sheraton Abandoibarra Hotel, Bilbao

The hotel is part of the new Ria 2000 master plan of the City of Bilbao, several blocks away from the Guggenheim Museum. Inspired by the work of the artist Chillida and the solid roots, history and culture of the Basque Country, the building is treated like a solid stone block, relieved by a lattice of perforations.

The rooms have been oriented along the perimeter so that guests can enjoy the different views like the mountains towards the north, the river and the Old City towards the west and the park towards the south.
