Hotel Architecture

La Concha Resort is considered the crowning achievement of local architects Osvaldo Toro and Miguel Ferrer, who also designed the iconic Tel Aviv Hilton and the Puerto Rico Supreme Court building.

Perla, the signature seashell-shaped floating venue designed by internationally-renowned architect Mario Salvatori, has been hailed as a marvel of engineering and architecture, and is an architectural treasure.

La Concha Resort fuses tropical climate features such as cross-ventilation, natural illumination, open lobbies and seamless transitions between inside and outside spaces, with details relevant to Island traditions. These include an interior patio, visual allusions to traditional galleries with blinds, a mirador encompassing the sea and city, and the use of water throughout as a leitmotif.

La Concha’s protective concrete façade, known as brise-soleil in French or quiebrasol en Espanol, filters sunlight towards the interior corridors, creating lacy shadows and silhouettes that precisely match the corridor floor patterns.
