. "We are here for a moment" not only from the point of view of the short stay of hotel guests, but above all from the point of view of the history of the surroundings .. The location of the hotel in the Kraków-Częstochowa Upland, which was geologically shaped 3 millions of years ago, makes us think about the time , respect the landscape and the surrounding nature. " Tomasz Wuczyński Plus Architects Group
LEVEL 511 Design Hotel & SPA was opened in the 2012 year, but the history of its origin begins in the XXI century XX century, when the municipality of Ogrodzieniec sold to the current co-owner a plot of land located on Janowski hill together with the existing building there.
It was a tourist hostel that has not functioned for over 10 for years. Earlier, in the 60 years, the building was the technical function of a television relay station. At the time of the acquisition, the building was abandoned, devastated and its form in the form of a concrete cube disfigured the surrounding landscape.
It started with the concept of reconstruction and extension of the existing hostel for a small hotel with a restaurant and beauty rooms called trendy SPA. The form was to be very traditional so that it would not contrast too much with the nearby ruins of the castle.
In this form also the object was designed and built in the second half of the 90 years in a closed state. Here is the 10-year break in investing. The business plan developed showed that the hotel in this form will be unprofitable.
There was a lack of more hotel rooms and a real SPA, in other words water. First, the area was bought and the second stage of the investment was started. This work was entrusted to young architects with a small experience, but with enthusiasm and capable of creating very modern architecture.
As a result of conversations with the conservator's office, very demanding building guidelines were obtained, including an absolute ban on changing the terrain, low height of new buildings, no more than 8 meters and most importantly from the point of view of the impact on the surrounding landscape, designing the building so that it would not be visible in the landscape with the castle, and therefore not competing with it.
In the course of developing the design of the new facility, landscape analyzes have been made, which proved that even in extensive panoramas from viewpoints located at 2 and 5 km, the hotel building will not be visible on the hill.
It was a turning point for investment.
At this stage of the project a large 20 swimming pool is already planned, and in the basement of the old sauna building with access to the original local rock, which now adorns not only this space, but also the space of the upper hall and restaurant. However, there was no access to a large amount of good water. Drilling in the hotel showed that at a depth of over 100 meters below the plot area there is a huge reservoir Jurassic waters.
A permit was obtained for the use of this water and the construction of a well with the appropriate pump. After the construction of two buildings, there is still their connection. The concept of corridors in the field and lifts to overcome the height turned out to be correct and confirmed by the fourth building permit. The construction of the facility was completed at the end of the 2011 year.
In January 2012 year 4 Star Level 511 Design Hotel & SPA has received its first guests, giving them at their disposal, among others comprehensive SPA zone, 20-meter swimming pool full spring water from deep water intake i restaurants with a menu card based on local products.
