Mini-hotel Ozherelye (Necklace)

Best Project of Public Building or Facility

About the project
Designing the hotel against the backdrop of untouched forests of Karelia, architect Roman Leonidov strived to fit the building into the surroundings. The semicircular shape of the lake and its steep shore suggested the building’s design, so it follows the shoreline. The large level difference made it possible to use elegant long wooden supports. The hotel is divided into two parts by a section protruding above the water. The building stands on a light wooden frame. Its rigidity is ensured by numerous invisible metal rods. The foundations are monolithic reinforced concrete pillars with intact soil underneath.
