On the Petržalka bank of the Danube, in the area in front of AuCafé, a new floating company will be added – Pontoon. The authors of the new operation project, which in addition to seating areas or various events with a view of the Danube and the city also offers accommodation, is the studio FVA Architects.
Unconventional floating object Pontoon situated on the Petržalka side of the Danube with a unique event space on the main deck offers an open view of the panorama of Bratislava's Old Town embankment.
The material concept is based on the cubic volume, represented by a distinctive Corten facade, which leaves visible traces of weather influences acting in time, the so-called patina, which also forms a natural protective layer of material. The dominant expression of the building is moderated by the dark cladding of the upper deck as well as the extensive glazed areas guaranteeing unforgettable visual experiences.
The principle of Corten is constantly changing appearance over time, from deep orange to dark brown earthy color. Over time, the significantly extroverted shipbuilding potentially becomes a less conspicuous object.
The opening date is not yet known.
