The continuously changing colours and lights of Lake Balaton nearly create an ethereal experience on the high coast of Balatonföldvár. The towering loess wall projects the force of the geological ages. A human feels tiny and momentary, yet there is something calming in dissolving in the timelessness of nature.
Nothing else could be the starting point of the concept of the hotel on such a site but the outstanding location. We tried to achieve the analogy of layering, ascent-descent, fracture and towering over with the tools of architecture while composing the volumes of the building.
