Art deco glamour hotel with balustrades as key design element
The Portals Hills Boutique Hotel in Mallorca consists of 29 condos and 2 penthouses. Visitors are immediately struck by the flawless white façade and soft, rounded corners. With floor-to-ceiling glazing, extensive balcony and terrace areas overlooking the Mediterranean and a new infinity pool, balustrades were a key design element. The balustrade design not only needed to provide transparency, but also an ornamental appearance. The Q-line balustrade system ultimately comprises 316-grade stainless steel posts and handrails with delicate steel bar infill running horizontally. For some parts, even curved bars were installed.
