South of the town of Waren in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, a narrow stretch of land runs between Lake Müritz and Müritz National Park’s Lake Feisnecksee. Once home to a sawmill, the hotel complex that stands here today opened its doors in 2019 and boasts a number of luxurious holiday apartments and also a private marina, which was completed in early 2021. Whether for sailing, hiking or cycling, the region is extremely popular with locals and tourists alike. The impressive, historical architecture of Waren’s town centre and harbour provides a cultural balance to the vast array of outdoor activities on offer. The hotel itself is the icing on the cake with its many spa and dining options. Holidaymakers are treated to all the benefits of a prime location, good infrastructure and the excellent service offered by the resort.
The building complex has a classically modern architectural style that works well with its backdrop and does the surrounding nature justice. The two distinct, three-story buildings have a total of 184 apartment units that enjoy an unobstructed view of the lake and lavish park area with their large-scale window façades, balconies and terraces. The partially covered stairwells, which divide the apartments into even sections, create additional open space.
These exposed and generously proportioned outdoor areas in particular require a reliable and also aesthetically appropriate dewatering solution. Discreet channels were to be installed at floor level on the balconies and terraces as well as on each level of the partially open staircases, ensuring optimal drainage of precipitation whatever the weather.
A perfect fit
The decision was made to go with two different drainage channels made by Richard Brink GmbH & Co. KG. The metal products manufacturer supplied a total of 2,503 metres of Fultura channels, which are height-adjustable thanks to their stilt supports, as well as 74 metres of fixed Stabile drainage channels. Produced in lengths of two metres, the installers cut the channels to length and fixed them in place on site. In order to meet the varying requirements of each installation location, products were used with inlet widths of between 120mm and 200mm. While the Fultura channels were always installed in front of the window and door reveals, Richard Brink custom-made the Stabile versions with the reveal depth in mind so they could be easily inserted in the ground-floor stairwell entrances. Perforated, hot-dip galvanised gratings with narrow slots were used to cover all the channels.
Following installation of the dewatering system, which went quickly thanks to the products’ high-quality craftsmanship, the sleek, timeless design of the gratings blend in seamlessly with the overall concept of the hotel complex. “MAREMÜRITZ Yachthafen Resort is one of the most beautiful holiday resorts in Germany. Guests can relax in the privacy of their own luxury holiday apartment, complete with lake view, while also enjoying the comfort and convenience of a hotel. The noticeable high quality of the apartments make for the perfect holiday feeling. Our local trade partners have done a great job here with their expert knowledge and premium products. A fantastic collaboration with flawless results,” says Felix Müller, Director of Project Development at 12.18. Investment Management GmbH.
