City of Banska Bystricaorganized architectural competition for the design of the new hotel on the exposed site on the historical city wall in close proximity to the memorial and museum of the Slovak National Uprising. Our objective was to maintain the visual axes of the museumwhich resulted in the location of the hotel as far away from the museum as possible and diagonal geometry of the entrance foyer. Proximity to the city wall had an effect on the design of long facadesof the accommodation block with crennelatedroofline of which the historical wall itself forms a natural part.
