Pasito Blanco Resort & Spa Design Unveiled

OBM International (OBMI) has been selected to design the luxury Pasito Blanco Resort & Spa in the Canary Islands’ Gran Canaria.

OBMI will oversee every detail of the project’s design process, from conceptual design to working drawings crafting a five-star, 160-room boasting a full-service spa, several bars and restaurants, three pools, and a rooftop lounge.


The primary goal for OBMI is to create an impressive visual impact, allowing the structure to cascade down the hillside, descending to the rocky coastline. OBMI is set to incorporate multiple levels, detached villas, sweeping docks, pools and patios, echoing the natural contours of the land to establish a flowing sensation throughout the entire resort.

Highlighting place-specific architecture, OBMI’s design for Pasito Blanco is one that will respect the islands context, culture and climate. Situated on a gently cliff overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, OBMI will reflects the area’s heritage by following traditional lines, taking advantage of local building materials and utilizing native landscaping.

The use of reinterpreted colonial design, local volcanic stones, white walls and wood features, including handcrafted Canarian wooden balconies, will carefully blend the architectural history with indigenous influences.
