Text description provided by the architects. In-between the trunks of the beautiful Öijared forest a new figure zigzags its way between the tree trunks and blends in with the from which it iscreated.
Kjellgren Kaminsky has designed a new hotel adjacent to the Öijared Golf Club, designed by Gert Wingårdh in 1988.
The new hotel, consisting of 34 rooms, a conference room, lounge and offices, will convey a sense of countryside where the vivid forest and its genuine materials are present trough wood, stone and dim colors.
The hotel is based on the same invisible grid as the existing clubhouse, but contrary to the clubhouse which is dug down in the earth the hotel stands on pillars.
Therefore the building has as small impact as possible on the site and enables the forest to continue to grow up close. In order to blend in with the surroundings the hotel is clad with an exterior wooden screen.
