Hotel Arłamów is one of the most famous and respected resorts in Poland.

The location in the heart of the Bieszczady Mountains in Natura 2000 area required special respect for the environment and regional building tradition. Arłamów is also a unique story – a former secret resort, which hosted dignitaries of the communist world, as well as the place of isolation of Lech Wałęsa, who spent interning time in Arłamów during martial law.


The rich functional program has been designed on almost 100 hectares of land. In addition to two hotels, the complex includes a full-size sport hall with shooting range, courts, gyms and a climbing wall, a horse riding unit, sport fields, two ski slopes and a golf course. The demand for electricity and heat is covered by its own green heat and power plant.


The heart of the whole complex remains the inner, glass-covered courtyard. Thanks to movable stands, the courtyard space allows to organize various types of events such as balls, concerts, fairs and sporting events.

The hotel has one of the largest SPA complex in Poland.


From start to finish the design was developed in BIM technology. The possibilities offered by parametric modelling have also been actively exploited. They were used, among the others, to optimize the shape of the roof above the courtyard, to ensure optimal acoustic conditions inside and even distribution of sound intensity over the entire surface of the auditorium.
