Design Practice Location:
The interior design of the spacious chalet ensemble near Kitzbühel continues the tradition of alpine building style in combination with modern elements. The two buildings on a slope harmonise excellently with the surrounding development with a view of the grandiose mountain world of the Kitzbühel Alps. The appeal of the classic alpine chalets has been integrated in a contemporary design and modern convenience. Large-scale claddings of recovered timber for floors, walls and ceilings create a consistent visual appearance, which is augmented by selected furniture and materials. Glossy surfaces and deliberately placed colour accents contrast with matt-black steel and elegant, dark natural stone. A particular highlight is the spa area, where the contemplative atmosphere is reinforced by the conservative materiality and lighting.
