"El Manantial by Theleisureway, Puerto Venecia, Zaragoza, Spain," has been recognized as Highly Commended in the "RLI Most Anticipated Opening 2023" category.

Inspiration and First Ideas

Located at one end of the plot, our intervention is part of the main natural axis of Puerto Venecia, giving us the opportunity to add another iconic component to the axis. theleisureway found in ”El Manantial” – or water source – the inspirtation to create the source of water that eventually spills into the lake of Puerto Venecia, enveloped by different species of greenery and topographies.

Final results

To complement the leisure offer of the complex, we proposed a space integrated in nature with activities for all members of the family.

Inspired by the native nature of “the cenotes” in Mayan Mexico, a large ramp acts as a landmark and creates 3 different atmospheres that evoke the sensations of cenotes: peace, harmony, and adventure creating a place to be used both day and night.
