Complete design of Avenue Park, a closed type complex, including a hotel, a spa centre, one outdoor and one indoor swimming pool, and residential flats, together with a number of service premises: an underground car park, a car wash, some shops, gyms, tennis courts, a restaurant, a bank office etc. Our aim was to create modern vision, in line with the latest residential needs. The total built-up area is 20,000 sq.m.
An existing high-voltage power line visually divides the property into two construction work areas: According to our design, the part facing the street will consist of a hotel with a restaurant and an outdoor swimming pool, and the internal part - a residential complex with a green area. Both structures are L-shaped for better protection against the north-east winds, which are very common for this part of the country. In the protected part of the hotel and the restaurant, there is an outdoor swimming pool with chaise longueurs and romantic open tents, while in the interior of the aparthotel, there is a picturesque green space with plenty of trees hiding various cosy spots for relaxation and sport.
The design provides a composition of two buildings with clean, compact and synchronized shapes, with minimalistic details. The façade and colour design of the building emphasizes their tectonics. The white and anthracite grey harmonize beautifully with the glass and wood. We sought a calm silhouette, clean volumes and stylistic matching of the two constructions.
At level -1 (underground level), there is a spa centre, an indoor swimming pool, a children’s pool, a steam room, an aroma steam room, aroma sauna, Finnish sauna, a spa capsule, an ofuro bath, a relaxation room for procedures with salts, and a salt sauna. We have also provided some VIP rooms and a room for lye procedures.
The reception area of the hotel will consist of a receptionist's desk, two offices, a lobby, a bank office, toilet facilities incl. disabled WC, and other service premises. There is also an internal connection to the restaurant on the ground floor. There will be 48 single rooms and flats altogether in the hotel, and 78 flats in the aparthotel, all of various layouts. The two-level 'penthouse-type' flats are part of the aparthotel and are located on the ground floor, with adjoining gardens, separated by hedges from the internal park of the complex.
The underground car park will consist of 125 parking spaces. All evacuation and fire access requirements have been complied with.
It is a cast-in-situ structure with a beam-free skeleton and brick non-supporting walls. A 10 cm outside insulation system is provided - EPS, outdoor plaster, stone and HPL. The exterior and interior partition walls are made of 25 or 12 cm thick Wienerberger bricks masonry, respectively. The building complies with all energy efficiency requirements.
The design and architecture parts were concluded in November 2017. The work on the engineering parts is still in progress. We expect the construction work to begin in late 2018.
