Innovative solutions will be used to make access to the facility more guests friendly. Pik Studio has published the first visualizations of the hotel interiors.
– We have created a unique interior: bold, modern and friendly for hotel guests – said Paweł Pałkus, architect and co-owner of Pik Studio for Propert Design. The adaptation of the old architecture of the office building was a challenge for architects. – We had to deal with ventilation and air-conditioning installations, which we hid in the suspended ceiling only in a part of the bar, which gave us the highest level of the lobby. We decided to discover the original ceiling and give it its own character. The wiped plaster imitating architectural concrete allowed us to create a drawing of the ceiling, which we decided to transfer to the wall and incorporate the Focus logo – Paweł Pałkus told.
The three-star Focus Hotel will be housed in a revitalized building at ul. Bernardyńska 13, which had previously served as an 8-story (10-story) office building. Due to the excellent location and view of the Brda River, the hotel will be a base for both individual and business guests. In addition to 85 spacious and well-equipped rooms, in the new Focus hotel guests will have at their disposal a restaurant, bar, fitness room and sauna. The facility also provides a modern conference area and car park.

The characteristic blue Projprzem office building has grown into the panorama of Bydgoszcz for 55 years of existence. The building was erected according to the design of Witold Jańczak in 1964. From the beginning, it housed the headquarters of Projprzem Makrum. Employees of the Group companies moved to the new headquarters of the entire Capital Group, located in the new IMMOBILE K3 office building at Plac Kościeleckich.
