Residenz-Strandhotel The 4-star First-Garni hotel welcomed its first guests on April 26, 2005. The owners of the hotel who are also representatives of the only Principality in distant Australia, the Principality of Hutt River, were given a personal compliment by Prince Leonard to the grand opening of the hotel, at the sea front in the Baltic resort of Warnemünde. The Hotel has 30 exclusively furnished rooms and suites, which can be air-conditioned individually and special noise reduction measures ensure your undisturbed rest and recreation. All rooms/suites from the first floor upwards have a roof terrace or balcony with a fantastic sea view. Also easy to reach through an elevator is the air-conditioned breakfast restaurant and the wellness-vital-health area (MEDICAL-SPA).
Warnemünde has its 4th lighthouse”
Ines Kuhner-Wozniak & Manfred Wozniak
Presentation of the design lighthouse by Mr. John Woulfe, Sydney/AU on Wednesday, April 29, 2009 in the Residenz-Strandhotel” Family Wozniak was introduced to Mr. John Woulfe on the occasion of the presentation of the hotel movie of “Residenz-Strandhotel” in February 2007 in the “Four Seasons Hotel” in Sydney/AU. In an adjoining gallery Mr. Woulfe was presenting some of his art works. Already at that time Family Wozniak was very interested in his works, as he uses a special hand carving technique and connects materials such as stainless steel, Australian timber and sandstone, to create unique designs.
At that point we were yet unaware of the worldwide success of this artist.
In May 2008 we commissioned Mr. John Woulfe to create a lighthouse for the lobby in our “Residenz-Strandhotel” in the Baltic resort in Warnemünde. After lots of coordination and sorting his other assignments, the artist started sculpting the lighthouse in the fall of 2008. End of January 2009 the project was then completed.
As part of the project preparation and the intensive collaboration with Mr. John Woulfe, we then realized what a star this artist was and not only in Australia but also in major cities such as: Dubai, New York, Montreal or London.
In February 2009 Mr. John Woulfe presented his art work in a transportation box on a pick up in the entrance area of the “Four Seasons Hotel” in Sydney. In a very short amount of time we were surrounded by a crowd of people who also wanted to get a glimpse of the lighthouse. Also because it is rather unusual to mount a large box in front of the hotel, pull out a cordless screwdriver and open up the lid of the box.
Family Wozniak already had the chance to admire the art work on a photograph which had been sent in advance in an email, but in reality and with the sun’s reflections this work was far more impressing. We considered this art work a great success.
