Coll Blanc Grandvalira
/ Type of project: Hotel
/ Location: Sochi
In every single project we always want to honor the local culture and values. Sometimes it is in a very evident way, sometimes we reflect that in a subtle way in each element that takes part of the whole project.
In this Project, the Grand Hotel Rodina in Sochi, we believed from the beginning that it had to honor the best Russian values, combined with the occidental culture and styles. This way we get delightful rooms and spaces where you can breathe the local culture in every corner.
Our idea was to turn the Grand Hotel Rodina into the perfect Dacha. A space where, without any doubt, Russian frequent clients will find the ideal atmosphere to rest. It is a place where high quality materials breathe the surrounding nature; This will reflect in each object and piece of furniture a taste, texture and color that will surprise every client. We have created an atmosphere that will emphasize the compromise of Russian people with their culture and values. Foreigners will learn, in a subtle and sensorial way, the best of the Russian culture and they will realize how gratifying it is to enjoy the nature and the best service at the ideal Dacha.
This project is engaged with the quality and the environment; it perfectly coexists with the surroundings. These spaces reinterpret the amazing Russian Izbas and take from them the colors, textures, shapes and materials and this give them a new meaning and place them in a new level.
The use of natural wood placed in the same way as it was placed in the old Dacha façades, the carpets becoming the bed headboard. The bohemian crystal lamps or the marble tables, the leather and the wood melt in unique pieces which emphasize the quality of the warm and cozy suites where any visitant will feel at home.
