3LHD win competition to design new Lone Hotel in Rovinj
17. November 2006
3LHD has won the first prize on the competition for the design of the new Lone Hotel in Rovinj, in one of the most attractive tourist resorts on the Adriatic Monte Mulini, Rovinj. The new five-star hotel will replace the existing Montauro Hotel in the Monte Mulini area and will be one of the first completely new hotels in Croatia in the last 15 years.The project for a building of highest hotel standards with 250 residence units, two restaurants, a brasserie, five bars, a conference and a wellness centre, over six levels, will be a big challenge for the office in the next few years.The design team was motivated by the following factors: location in the park, a specific terrain with significant height differences within the site, as well as the immediate vicinity of the Eden Hotel with its specific aesthetic characteristics. The ground plan in the shape of the letter Y has been defined by the elevations of the terrain, while the height differences in the interior provided for creating a vertical central lobby, the main axis round which all the facilities are centred. All the levels are multi-functional, thus improving the dynamics of daily use.One of the design objectives was to create a powerful and unique visual identity, ranging from the external design of the building to the interior planning of the facilities.
