Alpine hotel / Competition 3rd place
An old mountain hut located at 1800m above sea level is to be converted into a modern wellness residence. BWM Architekten’s proposal combines the idea of a mountain residence, or green hotel, with the Alpine way of life as well as the comforts and atmosphere of a modern lifestyle and the highest ecological standards. A four-storey walk-in tiled stove, moonlighting as an identity-defining sculpture, forms the heart, the atmospheric epicentre, of the building. The rooms and suites fulfil a variety of needs, offering peace and quiet for people desiring solitude, as well as cosy meeting areas for socialising. The building clearly falls in with the local Alpine building traditions, both in terms of the basic concept of a converted “Schutzhütte” and in the choice of materials, namely wood and stone.
