Riviera is a four-star hotel, located in the heart of a huge recreational complex, that encompasses an aqua park, an observation wheel, a beach and so on. The complex is situated in a prestigious district of Kazan. The 26-storied building of the hotel is glazed with sky-blue glass and serves as an embodiment of the new, modernized image of the capital of Tatarstan. Wide full-size panoramic windows of the hotel rooms face the river and the Kazan Kremlin, and this view is absolutely amazing. At the height of 100 meters there is a viewing point, which has become a habitual place of rest for the local citizens as well as a traditional site of wedding ceremonies.
The project was designed by Orimex-Stroy. The architects and designers successfully blended flawless European style with purely oriental luxury and exuberance in Kazan «Riviera». The glass manufacturer for the project was Glassbel company.
To glaze the façade of the hotel, the architects opted for Guardian SunGuard HP Royal Blue 38/31 coated glass, a multifunctional glass with a blue shade when seen from the outside, yet perfectly transparent from the inside. It successfully helps to protect the residents of the «Riviera» from the scorching sun rays, while letting the light flood the inner premises of the hotel.
