Good architecture should evoke emotions. Blue Orange, a comprehensive wellness center in Letňany, intentionally uses restrained architectural means and carefully planned combinations of materials to achieve optimal mind and body affinity. The two-floor building, designed by Luděk Rýzner, makes “friendly places” of all parts of the restaurant, hotel, conference room, health club, and beauty salon, providing interesting transparency for daylight and the outdoors environment through peaceful atria, terraces, balconies, and flat roofs with greenery.
Contact between the outdoors and the indoors results in ultimate relaxation in the atrium in front of the beauty salon.
The red color of the environment underlines the clubby character and cozy surroundings.
The entrance hall and reception area embodies the building’s motif: warm and cold elements combined in terms of materials and colors.
Raw poured concrete combines with sleek glass railing.
The subtle metal stairway stresses the technical nature of the fitness hall.
Despite its rich menu, the restaurant’s interior looks healthful and austere.
The air-conditioned physical condition and graceful body laboratory with state-of-the-art Schwinn stationary bicycles.
Besides sophisticated services, Blue Orange offers activity and relaxation in a technically advanced, well laid-out health club with cardio fitness, a stationary bike studio, and four squash courts.
