Hotel Kalasatama "Hila"

Invitation competition

We took part in an invitation-only competition which aimed to find a high-quality, fresh and well-fitting hotel building solution for the planned hotel plot next to the shopping centre REDI in Kalasatama. When planning the building, we paid special attention to the volume, shape and facade of the building as well as and to the traffic and logistical arrangements. Noise levels were also considered in our plan.

Our competition work “Hila” won the first prize. The plan included 200-250 hotel rooms, a restaurant and a cafeteria. Our plan will be used as a base for the block planning and further development of the hotel.
