The investor’s intention was to build a modern hotel with catering, social, sport and relaxation facilities, on a plot located in the northern part of the city of Frýdlant v Čechách.
These plots have a unique view of the city, and the Frýdlant’s castle with the Jizera Mountains panorama in the background.
The original concept supposed a reconstruction of the historical boarding house (so called ‘Greek House’) which would be used as a part of the new hotel.
Also, a new wellness building was supposed to be built on the site.
A garden was designed to fill the area between both buildings.
During construction, nonetheless, it was discovered that the historical building was in a very bad technical shape and it had to be torn down.
At the same time, the investor managed to buy additional land and thus, the hotel site could be extended and the original building substituted by a new hotel building.
The position and overall composition of the new building uses better the potential of the place.
The new hotel building is situated in the middle of the site, to the south of the wellness building and Zelená public street that goes through the site.
The mass of the hotel building is very varied because of a number of terraces and a part of the upper floor being dramatically cantilevered over the northern parking area.
That is why, in terms of material, facades were made simple and modest.
Facades on the southern side contain a lot of glass surfaces, with the prominent element being the ellipsoid-shaped exterior lounge with a panoramic window strip.
Full strips of window headers, as well as the surface of both gable walls and the northern façade at the ground level, together with cantilever ceiling, make use of the BAUMIT PRO insulation system, covered by a smooth, thin layered, coloured, SILIKON TOP K2 silicon plaster with 2mm coarseness.
The 300mm high sockle part is covered by FILLTOP 05 plaster.
Two shades of grey plasters were selected because they nicely complement glass covered surfaces with aluminium frames and sun breakers.
They also complement well the northern part of the cantilevered facade, composed of natural-coloured glass concrete panels with a relief tree motive.
Baumit insulation system helped achieve the intended expression of the building while maintaining excellent thermal and technical parameters of the building.
