Hotel Can Mostatxin in Alcúdia, Spain

The site had originally been a Manor House for a prominent local family which dated back to the 15th Century. The house had fallen into disrepair with some parts empty for over 300 years, and locals recalling its last use as a butchers shop some 30 years ago. The central body of the house featured a tower thought to date back to 1467 and a stone wine vat which predates the house. There was also a very impressive central courtyard which sits 20 metres below street level, although this was almost full with three hundred years worth of bricks, roof slates and general rubble along with several hundred nesting pigeons.

It took a year to clear the rubble and the pigeons, and a further year to make the site safe. There had been no access to the tower rooms in living memory, so once scaffolding was in place expert contractors could begin the painstaking work to renovate the stone work and refurbish the gothic architecture.

The key features of the site are what make this unique. The tower, gothic stonework, stone arch, basement wine vat and below ground courtyard have made the project special for all of those who have worked on it and the result is a Boutique Hotel which remains true to the original House with a feeling of tranquil beauty.

This project was designed by Toni Cànaves, the principal architect of DAA3 in Spain.
