- masterplan concept
The restructuring process of Hotel Timișoara gave rise to the idea of building an extension on the adjacent parking lot, a multi-functional volume that will fill the empty block. This extension has a double role, that of integrating and of supplementing the facilities specific for the activity of the hotel, and, through its volumetric structure, of generating a sequence of interconnected public spaces, forming a fluid path between the pedestrian street level and the roof terrace located on top of the extension.
The ground floor, hosting functions accessible to the public, is transparent, permeable, opening to the street as an interesting urban space. The pavement of the pedestrian street, the setup of sitting places and opening the indoor space to the public space will turn Mărășești Street into a live street, similar to Alba Iulia Street, located nearby.
Access to the conference halls located on the first floor, but also to the terrace, is made from Mărășești Street by exterior stairs, a continuation of the public space.
