AHEAD awards winner creates hotel that draws on local environment

Architect Jonathon Leitersdorf explains the vision behind luxury resort Six Senses Ibiza, in this video produced by Dezeen Studio for the AHEAD hospitality awards. The Six Senses is located in Cala Xarraca, on the northern tip of Ibiza. The project was named the winner of the Spa and Wellness category at the AHEAD Europe awards 2021. TheAHEAD Awardscelebrate striking hospitality projects from across the world and is split into four different regions: Europe, Middle East and Africa, Asia and the Americas. The winners of the AHEAD Europe hospitality awards were announced during a live ceremony in London on the 19th November. According to Leitersdorf the hotel was designed to take cues from the local spaces on the island, in order to feel more like a real community. "The first concept that we had in our mind was a sense of discovery," Leitersdorf told Dezeen. "We ended up with a concept of a utopian village built out of nine buildings, which are actually all connected underground." "The idea is, if you created something more like a village that has outdoor spaces and indoor spaces, and they're all a little different and a lot more intimate, then people will be happy to stay and never leave." The 20-acre site offers up to 116 guest rooms and includes restaurants, a spa & wellness centre, and a yoga pavilion. The resort's design takes cues from the surrounding environment, with many of the structures finished in terracotta hues and an organic material palette, reflecting the rugged terrain of the site.
