Lopota Lake Resort & Spa in the Kakheti region of eastern Georgia has added a new eco-friendly accommodation option to its portfolio. Designed by David Koiava of Design Avenue Studio, the energy-efficient two-story new construction, which includes 45 rooms and six suites, was designed to organically complement the natural splendor of the setting.
“As the hotel’s design is inspired solely by the hyper-local area surrounding it, the resort grounds and the surrounding mountainous landscape, the result has been a property that is quite distinctive among the hotel scene in the city. region,” says Koiava. “Instead of trying to stand out and make a statement, we tried to blend in perfectly with the natural surroundings of the hotel.”
The reinforced concrete structure is clad in pine and lined with greenery to further blend in with the surroundings, even spilling out onto the lake shore on one side. Spacious balconies attached to each bedroom further enhance the panoramic views, while solar panels crown the building. Vibrant contrasting hues emanate from the furniture, complementing the natural backdrop with leafy greens, earthy oak floors and hints of orange. Custom wallpaper also covers the interior with landscapes of autumnal forests.
