#LANDSCAPE #SPIKES #WOOD
Sarajevo is a longitudinal city, with heterogeneous architecture, surrounded by mountains that have hosted the Winter Olympics in 1984.
Compositionally speaking, Hotel Pino consists of two bodies: a primary horizontal cube in which public facilities are housed and vertical volume – the tower, which contains exclusively guestrooms. Circulation of guests dominates in the main cube that contains an access point, a spa with swimming pool, conference rooms, kid playrooms and a restaurant. Guest rooms are located along the perimeter of the main building and they receive daylight through the addition of roof spikes. Responsible way of building on a mountain requires adaptation to climate and geographical conditions. Lessons from the local vernacular architectural language were the key inspiration in the form finding of the exterior appearance of the building.
Steep spikes on the facade are an interpretation of roofs of mountain village houses and the silhouettes of pine trees. The main building volume rests on a stone cladded base – again citing tradition and the tripartite division of the composition of the object – legs / body / head – stone / wood / glass. Wooden shingles, from our previous experiences proved to be sustainable, durable and economical covering material on the mountain. Scratched below the surface, the support structure of the building is made of reinforced concrete – the dualism of these two materials is further interpreted through the interior – warm wooden surfaces communicate with rough, rustic concrete. Previously described tactility of materials goes side by side with the use of photo-wallpaper – the image is still returning to architecture as a scenographic and decorative moment.
