When designing this building, we were looking for a form that would effectively use the potential of the plot, its insolation, scenic potential and acceptable size. The decision to asymmetrically place the corridor in relation to the building’s axis allowed to increase the number of southern apartments with a view opening to a nearby lake. The introduction of a mezzanine for most hotel apartments significantly increased their size and spaciousness. Green terraces near hotel rooms increase their quality, provide intimacy for residents, and additionally improve the balance of biologically active areas on the plot. The ground floor of the building has been designed in such a way as to enable flexible arrangement of rooms for the preferred function. Here we have placed the entrance zone with the reception, luggage room with facilities, administration and staff facilities, conference rooms, restaurant, bar, whiskey room, living room, kitchen facilities, spa and toilets. In order to effectively use the permissible size of the building, we have introduced an underground storey containing parking lots, a technical part and spa treatment rooms.
This several-storey building of the hotel refers to the style of the local development of Warmia and Mazury, both through the roof design, the material used as well as the dynamic layout of the ground floor construction, inspired by the traditional Prussian wall. The characteristic dynamic line of pillars harmonizes composition with the roofline. The red brick refers to the traditional building material of this region, and through various variations of its arrangement, creates an interesting facade sculpture.
The designed object establishes a dialogue with the surrounding space, the extensive lake and the specificity of this region of Poland. The applied design solutions are to ensure its timelessness and the beneficial aging process of the building.
