Text description provided by the architects. In 2006 the municipal council of Olsztyn, Poland, launched an open competition regarding public investments around the Ukiel Lake as a call for directions to formulate future plans of urban development of the area surrounding its waters.

The winning project of the Centre of Water and Ice Sports by the architectural agency Restudio lead by Rafał and Maciej Jacaszek was successfully completed in 2015.

The project introduces a natural opportunity of accessing watersport activities, which now become more open as the marina tends to be a public space not an enclosed harbour, integrated with cycling and pedestrian lanes network. It is one of the first steps in agglomeration's development that turns its face towards the water, while before, the lake was defining rather a limit of the urban space.

Floor Plan

The spatial programme includes marina and watersports facilities, gastronomy, wellness, conference and training spaces around a central axis of 100 m long pier. Two buildings' wings were set to become a fluent part of the shore, so the design integrates the built and the landscape through a green roof, set of terraces, steps and boulders. Public activities can occure with use of the amphitheatrically arranged place and multiple viewpoints accessible from terrasses. It becomes then not only a fullfillment of functional needs but a free access leisure destination for locals and tourists.

Structure of space provides transparency in between the in and out through glazed enclosure of inner room offering an iteraction of views. As the design was kept in the limits of natural scape, the use of uncovered concrete, glass, wood and stone reinforces the continuity of materiality of the site. The fact of being partially an underground volume affects energetical economies by ground insulation.

The realisation confronts elements of the landscape, its surfaces and uses while offering to people an opportunity to experience the terrain and opens a vision to the town to become one of the most important sailing centres in Poland
