MARKET SQUARE HOTEL OULU
ARCH: MARKET SQUARE HOTEL OULU
The hotel proposal sits on the most controversial spot of the city - The debate of suitable inflill architecture between the historical landmark buildings has been going on for decades without concrete result.
The proposal adopts the structural and architectural materiality from the delicate old neihgbouring buildings while bringing contemporary architecture as a part of matrix of the built history. The activities such as hotel, restaurants, brasseries and a spa aim to revitalize the market square that has a huge potential to be the everyday place to spend time throughout the year.
