The One Suite Hotel is situated in Srebreno, half way between Dubrovnik and the Čilipi airport. It is a meeting place for the local residents and a new focal point of Župa Dubrovačka, representing an added value in a lively business and commercial zone of the town, available to everybody, not just hotel guests.
Eighteen accommodation units of varying structure are placed on two floors, with commercial and catering facilities integrated into the ground floor and the reception area. There is an infinity pool surrounded with a sunbathing deck on the roof. The hotel offers a tailor made experience for guests with a green & healthy lifestyle: a gym, massage pool and a special gastronomic concept in the “Lokal” restaurant and bar, developed by Andrea Klemenčić. All meals feature locally sourced foods produced by family owned farms. The bar serves local wines and kraft beers. Electric vehicle power station and a modern conference room are located in the hotel.
The client developed a unique “One Suite Hotel” app that, besides standard options (internet access, hotel check-in and check-out) allows unlocking of doors and guides the visitors through the entire facility. There is also a possibility to view running and walking trails for recreational use in the Župa area.
High quality natural materials have been selected for the interior design: clean lines and lighter colors in accommodation units and darker tones in public spaces. 3LHD cooperated with Prostoria on the furnishing, a large part of the furniture bears the Croatian design signature. The author of visual identity, signage and environmental graphics design is Orsat Franković from Flomaster. Main feature of the interior design is Art in One, a concept of collaboration with prominent Dubrovnik artists. The hotel is a kind of art gallery that will affirm the art scene by exhibiting local artists and their creative energy. The authors of the exhibited artworks are Ivana Pegan Baće, Viktor Daldon, Tina Gverović, Marko Ercegović, Ivana Jelavić, Ana Opalić, Ana Požar Piplica, Luko Piplica, Ivana Dražić Selmani, Slaven Tolj and Ivona Vlašić.
The hotel facade was made of plaster with a glass granulate additive to achieve a gentle glittery/silver effect. Landscape design, conceived by Ines Hrdalo, is based on a selection of indigenous greenery and the preservation of existing old olive trees.
The project was financed under the European Regional Development Fund. The total value of the project is 25,698,546.86kn, and the co-financed amount is 9,385,495.08kn.
