A new hotel complex in Wisla will be built at the intersection of Wyzwolenia and Zielona streets, in the southeastern part of the city. The entire complex will consist of five buildings with an area of more than 19,000 square meters. Architects from the Franta Group studio wanted to find a unique form for the proposed establishment, and thus depart from the current way of designing contemporary hotels in the Silesian Beskid.

sustainable architecture

The goal of the project was to fit the building into the landscape in such a way that, while fulfilling the extensive program, it would not dominate the context of the site and the beauty of the surrounding landscape with its overscaling.

For this reason, we decided to move away from the form of a concentrated building in one strong mass in favor of a balanced architecture of a complex of hotel pavilions broken into modules," explains Maciej Franta.

The architecture of the pavilions is a contemporary synthesis of wooden volumes

As the architect says, the main inspiration for the formation of the complex was a reference to wooden huts standing freely in a mountain glade.

Therefore, we proposed the architecture of the pavilions as a contemporary synthesis of the cubature of wooden regional architecture characterized by slants, wood and proportion, and linking it functionally with an underground storey covered with a green roof in the form of a multifunctional meadow," adds Maciej Franta.

The program includes the development of five hotel pavilions. The individual blocks will have five above-ground floors and four underground floors, where such functions as a swimming pool with a spa zone, parking, and technical rooms will be located.
