Hotel in the Apple Grove

Best Project of Building or Facility by Student

About the project
Students used to grow and study plants in the premises of the Pskov-based apple garden. Unfortunately, because of the air pollution the garden in the center of the city, within walking distance from most of the local landmarks, is no longer suited for the purpose.
The author project made some researching and found out that in recent years Pskov has been visited by more and more tourists, especially families with children. She decided to locate a hotel in the apple garden, which would include both single and family rooms.

The contemporary appearance of the hotel might be found controversial by some of the citizens, but Sultana is sure that it is like a fresh breeze in the traditional landscape, offering a perfect contrast with it.
