Multifunctional complex Falcon Investment
The task of the team of architects was to place four functional parts of the building under one roof: a hotel, a sports center, a multi-levelparking and a tennis club. Externally, the massive project on the main avenue in Minsk resembles a flying falcon. This bird is one of the elements of the investor’s logo – the Fund of Qatar Armed Forces.
In the center of the building, there is a sports center, which can hold 2098 visitors and is equipped with locker rooms and training halls. The commercial unit of this part of the building represents a boulevard: there is a street with cafes and shops recreated here to go for a walk. Tennis club includes three hard-surface courts and six squash courts. It is adjoined by a SPA center with a swimming pool and fit ness rooms.
The building of the Marriott hotel, which follows the shape of watercourse of a nearby river Svisloch, dominates in the whole composition. Most of the hotel rooms overlook the river and so does aspacious lobby from where you can go down to the park area.
The complex was designed with account of the needs of all visitors: there is a barrier-free access to all parts of the building and places forhandicapped people on the four-level parking lot.
