The main idea of the designed facility was to depart from the current design of contemporary hotels in the Silesian Beskids and to place the facility in the landscape in such a way that, while fulfilling the extensive program, it would not dominate the rescaling of the context of the place and the beauty of the landscape.
The architecture of the pavilions was proposed as a modern synthesis of the cubature of wooden regional architecture characterized by slants, wood, and proportion, and linking it functionally with an underground floor covered with a green roof in the form of a multifunctional meadow.
The project includes the construction of five hotel pavilions with two hundred apartments, a spa, restaurants, cafes, and a complex of additional sports and recreational functions, shops and kindergartens, relaxation, and terraces.
The entire complex is planned in a premium standard, exceeding all previous projects in the Silesian Beskids.
