Linx Hotel by OSPA

December 3, 2014

Linx Hotel- Project of an executive hotel, located near the Antonio Carlos Jobim International Airport (Galeão), into Infraero concession zone. The undertaking arises from World Cup and Olympic Games lodging demand in Rio de Janeiro before, during and after these events.

The hotel’s main purpose is to serve transit passengers, business people and tourists which demand a quick connection to the airport. With 7.528,44sqm of floor area in a 4.800sqm lot, the building is composed of two blocks: one for the apartments, another for social and service areas.

According to airport zone height restrictions, the accomodation edifice is extended to the ground floor, optimizing the available lodging units in 162 apartments.

Besides the standard apartment, in both ends of every corridor two larger apartments are positioned, which can be united through the main circulation without losing each one’s privacy.

The smaller volume is composed of two levels. In the front is located the porte-cochére, leading the guests to the main social areas, e.g. the lobby, the restaurant, the snack bar and the main conference room.

In the first floor are found the gym, the bar, meeting rooms and a terrace, where is located a two-lane lap pool. The building was fully designed with industrial elements, with precast concrete structure and prefabricated elements in order to optimize the construction runtime.

The project combines energy efficiency, rational use of natural resources and automated operating systems.
