folded roof surfaces are anchored in the ground, inspired by the thatched roof scale typical of the area.
One of the key guidelines in designing the building was to maintain as much of the existing pine forest as possible. To this effect, the new building is abstracted from the surrounding area with lush greenery and is seen by the observer in separate sequences that appear between tree trunks. Nevertheless, due to its unique programme, the building beckons to be seen, which provides the rationale for the slightly more expressive exterior form and materiality of the structure. Because of the white cladding, the building still succeeds in engaging with the passers-by despite being mostly hidden in the trees. The white colour in combination with the attractive form creates a recognisable landmark that duly outshines the adjacent hotel facilities and gives the complex a distinct appearance.
The expressive exterior is contrasted by a warm wood interior. The interior is designed as one fluid connected space which opens up to the smaller atriums and framed views of the forest landscape outside. The smaller scale of the structural envelope and interior cladding approaches the human scale. At the same time, the highly structured interior addresses the acoustic requirements, which are of great importance in a space with large, sound-reflecting water bodies.

Curriculum studio / partecipanteEnota was founded in 1998 with the ambition to create contemporary and critical architectural practice of an open type based on collective approach to development of architectural and urban solutions. Constant changes and new complex situations in the world around us drive us to think about new architectural and urban solutions. In order to be able to produce answers to those new questions we believe it’s time to surpass the boundaries of conventional discipline set mainly by our cultural backgrounds. Enota’s team of architects focuses on research driven design of the environment where study of contemporary social organizations and use of new technologies are interwoven to produce innovative and effective solutions. Enota’s solutions are strongly influenced by research, reinterpretation and development of social, organizational and design algorithms that derive from nature. The result is always a strong binding of the buildings with the environment that surrounds them.
