Description of the project

The architectural studio Mano de Santo and KMZero, Open Innovation Hub, part of Martinez Group, chose Guardian Glass when designing Punta de Mar, the first floating, dynamic and advanced accommodation in Spain. This innovative project, promoted by startup Punta de Mar, aims to take the concept of experiential tourism to another level, of which the first prototype is already placed at the Club Náutico in Denia on the Mediterranean Sea.

Punta de Mar is a floating platform with a careful, minimalistic architectural design, that is both functional and respectful to the environment. By helping to foster an all-senses experience of its surroundings, the project’s goal is an integration with the natural environment, together with intimacy, comfort, relaxation and a sense of well-being for the guests.

The floating structure used triple glazed Guardian glass that provides superior energy savings, security and acoustic insulation. On the outer surface Guardian SunGuard® SN 70/35 HT selective glass was installed; followed by Guardian ExtraClear®, an intermediate glass layer; and on the inner surface, Guardian ClimaGuard® Premium2 laminated glass is used to reinforce the overall security and energy efficiency.

For the project’s interior design, Guardian SunGuard® HD Silver 20 was specified (in wardrobe areas, headboards and bathroom) with the aim of playing with different reflections. Due to its various mirror effects, privacy can be enhanced in these more intimate areas, while creating interesting, fun effects in others, providing a sense of spaciousness and immersion of the outside with the inside. 

The architect highlights: “The importance of the glass, as well as all the other materials we have chosen, has been essential. With these, we have looked for a total connection with the surroundings. In particular, the glass should have some specific performance in terms of transparency to achieve that [apart from insulation], as well as large dimensions to solve the comfort aspect too. This adds up to the fact that the glass used for the living space of the lodge allows a 360-degree experience. The guest feels enveloped by the surroundings. It’s an experience of total integration and the glass assists in achieving that.”
