La Concha lauded by Architectural Digest
By : FRANCES RYAN
frances@caribbeanbusinesspr.com
Edition: July 16, 2009 | Volume: 37 | No: 28

$220 million revival featured as one of top tourism-design projects; 248-room Renaissance Resort lands Four-Diamond rating from AAA

La Concha’s $220 million revival not only injected a much-needed burst of energy into Condado’s tourism district, but also grabbed the spotlight as the new chic spot “to see and be seen.”

The upcoming August edition of the prestigious Architectural Digest (AD) magazine features La Concha’s remodeling project and its resurrection as a 248-room Renaissance Resort. It dubs the end result a total success in preserving the essence of the “beautifully massed, expertly sited, vividly inventive building…” and goes on to describe the works of the architects as masterful in bringing back to life this San Juan tropical modernist gem.

“La Concha’s original tropical modernist design skillfully combined with new structural design—aimed at capturing natural light and air flow as well integrating interior spaces with natural surroundings—is what has made this project successful. Beyond an architectural preservation initiative, the new La Concha hotel has become the expression of our brand as a premier entertainment and tourism destination,” said José “Peco” Suárez, general manager.

Appropriately, AD credits the developer’s foresight for heeding the advice of concerned citizens and historians who recommended breathing new life into the original 1958 La Concha shell instead of demolishing the structure to build a new one when it passed into private hands. That smart move has paid off with the resounding positive response from both the local and visiting tourist communities.

The AD article also captures the mammoth task the office of Marvel & Marchand Architects and Jorge Rosselló Interior Designers & Space Planners took on in rescuing La Concha’s long-neglected structure.

The article notes the architects created deep-shading overhangs, open corridors, windows and doors that open to lush interior courtyards and provide crossventilation, and a beautifully lacy quiebrasol (their take on a brise-soleil) for further modulation of light and heat.

The piece goes on to say “the hotel featured vaulted ceilings that capped poolside cabañas, a sea of white marble in its interiors and Salvatori’s whimsical mollusk of a restaurant floating in a reflecting pool that seemed to merge into the infinity of the ocean beyond.”

Despite a number of additions and subtractions over the years, the basic bones of the original were kept intact, according to architect José R. Marchand and designer Jorge Rosselló, noting their stroke of luck when they found the original hotel drawings that revealed important architectural elements such as the spiral staircase in the lobby and the cabañas that had been scrapped over the years.

Dubbed the most dashing expression of the hotel’s energy is la concha itself, Mario Salvatori’s original seashell restaurant, which had lost much of its luster over the years. Lit from below and with ambient Murano glass lamps, the shell now emerges as the pure piece of sculpture that it always was, the AD article said.

La Concha also recently earned the coveted Four-Diamond rating in its first-time inspection by the American Automobile Association (AAA). La Concha landed the prestigious ranking for its high degree of hospitality, service and attention to detail.

Other details that make La Concha a Four-Diamond resort include special attention to style, décor, amenities and services, excellent curb appeal, landscaping and lighting in the parking lot, impressive architectural features and added security. Approximately 32,000 hotels throughout the U.S., Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean are AAA-approved and rated from a low of One Diamond to the rarest Five Diamond.

Re :CONDADO | LA CONCHA CONDO HOTEL TOWER | 13p

WOW ! When LA CONCHA is open at that time the Condado’s district is listed in top areas. But i have few information about Caribbean architects projects.
Caribbean architects projects feature. Promote and showcase Architecture (built and unbuilt), from Caribbean nationals to the global community, and vice versa. For more information about, Caribbean Art and Tropical Architecture. Other caribbean architects promote and showcase Architecture, art and graphic design (built and unbuilt), from Caribbean nationals to the global community, and vice versa. For more information about, Caribbean Architecture and Caribbean Architects.

Éxito forjado en cristal



La empresa local Vista Systems engalanó la portada de una prestigiosa revista de la industria de cristal a nivel mundial, gracias a su trabajo en el restaurante Perla, del hotel La Concha, en Condado.
Cuando Claudio Reck, propietario de Vista Systems, con sede en Carolina, concedió la entrevista a la revista US Glass, Metal & Glazing no pensó que poco después se llevaría la sorpresa de encontrar su trabajo expuesto en la portada de la publicación.

La empresa local, reconocida por su atención al detalle en proyectos para clientes exigentes, compitió por el proyecto de Perla con muchos otros contratistas, ya que el diseño propuesto exigía que los inmensos cristales de formas irregulares tuviera un montaje prácticamente invisible.
“El requisito era que no tuviera vigas de metal. Estuvimos como seis meses buscando un fabricante que hiciera el cristal, hasta que conseguí uno en Singapur que nos dijo que sí. Vinieron hasta ingenieros de Singapur a medir y observar la estructura”, relató.

Reck contó que cuando comenzó a trabajar en La Concha no pensaba obtener el proyecto del emblemático restaurante Perla. Ya tenía las manos llenas con la venta e instalación de las puertas de cristal a prueba de huracanes en todas las habitaciones del hotel.

“Me arriesgué porque nunca había hecho un proyecto tan grande, pero la calidad del trabajo y la atención a los detalles consiguió que nos dieran todo el trabajo de cristalería del hotel”, señaló, pero aclaró que por presiones de tiempo, el recibidor de La Concha lo trabajó otro contratista.

El Centro de Convenciones también salió en la portada de US Glass en mayo 2006 resaltando su diseño "hurricane-proof".
