Project Description
NOOK Hotels by Armagrandi Wellness Center in Çanakkale is a unique architectural design project that offers a breathtaking view on the top of a mountain. The center consists of two old stone buildings that were already existing, which have been carefully restored and transformed into a wellness space. The project prioritizes respect for nature and aims to preserve the natural elements of the surrounding environment. With a minimal and earthy design approach, the center provides a peaceful and calming atmosphere for its guests. The space offers various wellness activities such as yoga, meditation, massage, and sauna, and encourages people to connect with nature and focus on their mental and physical wellbeing. Overall, the center offers a holistic experience that promotes relaxation, rejuvenation, and health in a serene and natural setting.
The masterplan for the wellness center designed by Piknik was based on the idea of respecting and integrating with the surrounding nature. As such, the main focus was on utilizing the natural emptiness and openness of the site to create light and minimal structures that would blend in with the environment.One of the key ideas was to create tent-like spaces for various wellness activities, such as yoga, meditation, and outdoor massages. These tents would be made from light and sustainable materials and would be scattered throughout the site, taking advantage of the different views and the natural light.

The hotel rooms in the wellness center in Çanakkale designed by Piknik are designed to frame and showcase the beauty of the surrounding nature. The rooms are strategically placed in a way that allows guests to enjoy unobstructed views of the lush greenery and mountainside. Large windows and glass doors provide ample natural light and create a seamless connection between the indoor and outdoor spaces. The interior design of the rooms is simple yet elegant, with natural materials such as wood and stone used to create a warm and inviting atmosphere. Each room also has a private outdoor space, such as a balcony or terrace, where guests can relax and take in the breathtaking views.
