The site of a new hotel is located on Lesi Ukrainki boulevard, characterized by two dominant scales: Soviet nine-storeyed houses flanking the boulevard and newly-constructed thirty-three-storeyed office towers.

 

site plan

 

The composition consists of three volumes: the lower one with public functions, one volume of hotel rooms, and a sky-bar volume. This vertical parceling helped to achieve the scale corresponding to the early Soviet development.

 

 

 

The lower volume has an atrium with galleries, from where one can get to the hotel lobby, boutiques, restaurants, and conference halls. Hotel rooms are located in the volume differing in their layout. The upper volume of the sky-bar is displaced to make a unique viewpoint. On the whole, the project reflects the complexity of the existing urban situation and technologies employed in modern hotels.
