2020 UDAD 🏆 Awards

Winner: Palmira Garden Hotel & Spa | Genpro

The hotel was designed as a part of the recreational cluster and is adjacent to the monument of regional significance «Timokhovo Manor XIX» in Moscow region, Russia. On the one hand, it was necessary to create a modern building, which, on the other hand, should be organically combined with the architectural ensemble of the manor.

The restrictions to the protective zone of the cultural heritage object concerned the height, color decisions and architectural style — the absence of spires, towers and other protruding elements in the appearance of the building. Given these, we created a loft-style building with variable altitude and rolling roofs. The color solution is made in the range of the cultural heritage object.

The three-storey structure of the hotel complex begins with a 2-storey executive-public area. On the first floor there is a food area, a fitness club and a swimming pool, on the 2nd floor there is a conference hall. The residential area with hotel rooms consists of 4 and 8 floors.

The pane of glass in the facade solution offers beautiful views of the hotel rooms to the park and the manor, and, on the outside of the glass facade, there are clouds and natural landscape, like living stained glass. The sign is located on the speaker portal, which closes by the door to the terrace — it is a business card of the hotel. Aged brick in facade finishing and metal details in the form of stairs and awnings emphasizes the loft style.
