Grossling Spa in Bratislava
TUL Rector's Award for school work in the Young Architect Award 2020, Redčenkov – Danda studio
The proposal deals with a dilapidated area in the center of Bratislava right on the Danube embankment. In accordance with the city's intention, the author decided to restore the original function of the spa and add a library. The jury appreciates the architectural quality of the newly created multifunctional space where the author's concept of conveying the impression of an ancient experience using the characteristic features of the ancient Roman baths was fulfilled. At the same time, the author managed to sensitively implement high-quality contemporary architecture with a well-thought-out layout and the inclusion of terraces creating a pleasant space in the inner atrium. The jury also positively evaluates the excellent graphic design of the presentation. The project is a shining example of what the transformation of a disjointed crumbling building in the city center into a living multifunctional space bringing new life back to the place can look like.
