Lucas and Hernández-Gil Architects helped to design a charming hotel that seamlessly combines modern and medieval architecture. In many tourist areas, there is a demand for accommodations that boast modern amenities and historical charm. This hotel demonstrates how architects can incorporate contemporary features without sacrificing rustic charm.

The 'Hotel Ayllón' is located in a medieval village in Segovia, Spain. The hotel itself is made up of two buildings that were each given a contemporary makeover. Wood was used throughout the buildings to give the hotel a rustic quality, but the addition of modern furniture makes the space feel comfortable and contemporary. The architects then left certain exterior features intact in order to help the hotel blend into the surrounding medieval architecture.

The Hotel Ayllón demonstrates how architects can provide guests with the comforts of home, without sacrificing a building's historic features.
