4-star hotel with a spa & an ocean view
Hotel Öresund is a 4-star hotel in Landskrona, Sweden. The hotel is located by the quay promenade and has 130 hotel rooms and exclusive spa facilities. The vision was to design a modern and sleek building that would contrast the surrounding historical buildings.
The building has an open and lively expression with a bright facade and large windows. At street level Hotel Öresund houses restaurants and outdoor cafes. On the second floor you will find a large conference hall. The hotel rooms on the highest floor have balconies and at the top the spa is located with a luxurious outdoor terrasse, a floating basin, and a wonderful ocean view.
The pool glazing for this project was done by HYDROSIGHT.
Modern & sleek facade
The facade is characterised by the yellow and beige stones framed by white glassfibre reinforced concrete. BB fiberbeton manufactured around 250 facade elements, corresponding to 500 m2 GRC. The elements are mounted with either embedded steel frames or embedded steel brackets. This installation solution provided an easy and hidden installation that required no technical maintenance.
Through design and manufacturing we help architects, entrepreneurs, and builders create unique, durable, and sustainable facades. Whether you are starting construction on a new build or embarking on a renovation project, GRC is suitable for both.
Glassfibre reinforced concrete (GRC or GFRC) is incredibly versatile and grants you an architectural design freedom with almost endless possibilities. With the formability of GRC you can achieve any geometry and with a surface designed for your specific project. GRC is a lightweight material and our cladding elements are typically only 12 mm. Thus, making it easier to work with and transport whilst also easing the load on buildings.
GRC is an excellent facade material if durability and sustainability is of great concern and importance. GRC is durable for more than 100 years without any technical maintenance and it does not dent, rot, corrode, nor burn (class A material). With a sustainable material and an environmentally friendly production without toxic materials, GRC elements from BB fiberbeton are ideal for environmental certifications, such as LEED, DGNB, and BREEAM.
GRC is made of white cement and fine aggregates and reinforced with glassfibre. Elements are produced using a special spray-technique that allows for a low water/cement-ratio, a low thickness, and a high strength.
