Treeishness - Hotel in Mariefred (English)
Abstract [sv]

Grundförutsättningarna för projektet var uppgiften att skapa ett mindre hotell i småstaden Mariefred som skulle relatera till staden på ett meningsfullt sätt. För att hantera hotelltypologins motstridiga behov av å ena sidan publika, livfulla ytor å andra sidan privata, lugna rum tog projektet inspiration av de rogivande träden på den i övrigt livfulla tomten som angavs i uppgiften. Hotellets olika rum, rumsgrupper och planlösning har därmed inspirerats av en trädanalogi.

I projektet har även flödande rumssamband undersökts för att hantera verksamhetens stora behov av kommunikationsytor. I byggnaden har dessa försökts minimerats och planlösningen präglas istället av funktionsspecifika rumsgrupperingar ordnade efter förmodade flöden av gäster, personal och övrig logistik. Utrymme för flexibilitet i planlösning var även en del av processen med följden av stor variation av sammankopplade hotellrum eller möjlighet till extraprogram i bottenplan.

En betydande utmaningen i processen var att låta trädanalogin vara en inspiration för meningsfull arkitektur utan att landa i det alltför pretentiösa. En annan stor utmaning var att få de flödande, flexibla rumssambanden till en funktionell planlösning och fortfarande ha möjlighet att utveckla projektet arkitektoniskt i övrigt. 

Abstract [en]

The basis of the project was the assignment of creating a small hotel in the town of Mariefred that would relate to the town in a meaningful way. To handle the conflicting needs of the hotel typology consisting of - on the one hand public, vibrant parts and on the other hand private, quiet hotel rooms - the project took inspiration from the trees in the assigned site which gave peace to a relatively lively place. The hotel’s various rooms, group of rooms and the plan has thus been inspired by a tree analogy. 

The project also has examined a plan characterised of rooms and functions connected in a flow with minimised space solely dedicated for circulation. Groups of rooms with specific functions is organised according to presumed flows of guests, staff and other logistics. Flexibility in the plan was also part of the process with the result of a big variety of interconnected hotel rooms and the possibility of temporary additional programs on the ground floor. 

A significant challenge in the process was to let the tree analogy stay as an inspiration for meaningful architecture without being pretentious. Another big challenge was to get the flowing, flexible room relationships to a functional floor plan and still be able to develop the project architecturally otherwise.
