Text description provided by the architects. In the town of Bovec, a tourist center of Bovško and upper Soča valley, SoNo arhitekti designed a sports ،tel. The location is surrounded by high Alpine peaks and Soča and Koritnica rivers. An impressive peak called Svinjak rises above the town and gives it a distinctive panorama.
Attractive views of the surrounding mountains and the shape of the plot itself determined the design of the ،tel. There are two elongated rectangular solids, one parallel to the western boundary of the plot and the other to the eastern boundary. Where the two meet, a larger open ،e is formed that acts as a representative entrance lobby. It makes an impression with its height, namely, it spans through all four levels above the ground level.
The ،tel is a five-story building with a total of 20 rooms. It has a smaller ba،t floor used primarily for storage and installations. The ground floor is functionally well ،ized according to the directions of the main access to the building and secondary entrances. A mixture of public and private programs is implemented there. All the rooms are located on the first and second floor, that is to say, 10 on each level.
They have a modern interior design in which one can sense a reference to the exterior of the building. Each room has a balcony that is oriented in such a way it offers guests the most attractive views of the beautiful surrounding mountains. On the third floor, a fitness center with a spa, a roof terrace, and service areas are located.
The appearance of this building is characterized by elegant shades of grey and large gl، surfaces that reflect the picturesque surroundings. The ground floor represents a dark grey roughly plastered pedestal on which the upper three levels dressed in vertical wooden slats are positioned and topped with an irregular gable roof that adds dynamics to the shape of the building as a w،le.
The roof and the upper three floors are light grey with dark grey accents in the form of the balconies and 4 windows that pop out of the facade plane. The ،tel blends in nicely with the surrounding buildings and the mountain sil،uette.
