Situated in the valley of the Kamienna River and on the slopes of the Karkonosze Mountains, Szklarska Poręba is one of the most popular places for relaxation – not only for holidays. This well-known mountain resort, with its distinctive architecture, bustles with life all year round. It’s also where the 4-star Mercure Szklarska Poręba hotel was built, with interiors designed by the Warsaw-based architecture studio Tremend.

Located in the heart of the Karkonosze Mountains, this hotel combines traditional local architecture reminiscent of 19th-century buildings and modern yet cozy interiors, all spiced up with a relaxing spa area. One of the hotel’s buildings was the former Szarotka Holiday House, which has been completely restored and modernized. It now offers 23 luxurious suites with kitchenettes. While designing the hotel’s interiors, Tremend studio architects were inspired by the surroundings, creating an individual storytelling of the place.

“As with every project, we also tried to create interiors that tell the story of the hotel’s location. The theme for the design of the common areas and rooms at Mercure Szklarska Poręba was the local glassworks, quarries, mountains, and beautiful land-scapes that surround the property,” said Magdalena Federowicz-Boule, architect, and co-owner at Tremend.

Colors of the earth

Surrounded by greenery, the hotel invites you to come inside, where guests can feel the spirit of the mountains just from the doorstep. The variety of materials, patterns, and textures refer to the surrounding landscapes. The stone reception desks refer to the mountainous environment and the rocky slopes of Szrenica. The warm, natural colors of the earth have been contrasted with muted orange and navy blue. The architects were inspired by the colors of the stones, clay, and the stream flowing nearby.

The glass spherical lamps featured all around the hotel are a nod to the local glass-works, which still boast a handmade process. The decorations are dominated by glass vases and plates, sugar bowls highlighting the importance of local products. In the ho-tel’s lobby, the walls are also stunning. They refer to the shimmering various colors of minerals extracted from local quarries. The sunlight coming through the window further illuminates them, giving an amazing impression of depth. While relaxing on comfortable armchairs, guests can enjoy peace and harmony, thanks to the perfect combination of different materials and textures inspired by nature.

The warm tones, wood, and stone used in the lobby flow seamlessly into the interior of the Bergo restaurant, which treats guests with delicious regional cuisine with a modern twist.

Relaxing in nature

Mercure Szklarska Poreba Hotel is a unique place to relax. It also houses the Berga SPA & Wellness, a place where guests can take care of the well-being of the body and mind. While designing this space, Tremend architects also drew inspiration from the surround-ings. They transferred the strength of the mountains, the power of the forest, and the force of the brisk stream in the materials used for the finishing touches. This resulted in a place where visitors can relax in nature with an outdoor pool, indulge in therapeutic and relaxing massages, and beautifying treatments. The surrounding forest is condu-cive to finding life’s balance and drawing positive energy from nature.
