Planning of an alpine wellness hotel**** in Brixen, Italy at 1100 meters above sea level.
Here, luxury is defined by a combination of space, peace, time and nature. Reduction is our leitmotif. Our aim is to place the hotel within nature by respecting the environment. It was important to us to design an ecological building which fits into the natural surroundings sustainably and uses the given natural resources sparingly. A refuge which fulfills the human desire for safety.
The roof adapts to the surrounding landscape. The form of the building represents an attempt to show the connection between its architecture and nature. By reducing to the essential, the architecture should evoke the sensation of being in touch with nature as well as a feeling of openness. The interior was designed in order to fulfill the wish to perceive nature haptically, visually, acoustically and emotionally. The range of colors is based on the colors of the surrounding nature and is separated into active and passive color shades according to their functions.
