Zell am See
Status: Concept study
Client: Architec Objektbau
Interior design study for a project developer. This hotel project is in a fantastic location with a great view over the rooftops of Zell am See. The hotel offers a direct view of the lake and the wide panorama stretches from the "Steinernes Meer" in the north to the "Hohe Tauern" in the south, revealing a wonderful view of Austria's highest peaks. The hotel is situated on a south-eastern slope, which guarantees exceptionally long sunny days even in winter.
The hotel is designed by architect Michael Pazelt. It combines contemporary style with traditional materials. The use of rough-cut, stained wood panelling and natural stone from the region lends the design a local atmosphere and conveys a warmth that perfectly complements the refined lines of the overall modern concept. Large glass surfaces and windows provide unobstructed views of the unique panorama, while the layout of the buildings ensures the privacy of the individual flats. The projecting balconies, overhanging upper floors and the staggered positioning of the six buildings give the overall concept a unique dynamic.
The interior design was created by destilat. The concept is the optimal complement to the architectural design of the hotel. Based on the style of traditional Austrian chalets, the theme of wood runs through the entire hotel complex. Wood gives the project its cosy alpine atmosphere, which contrasts strongly with the emphatically modern surroundings and yet integrates effortlessly into its environment. The extensive use of natural materials such as slate from the region, but also untreated and oiled wood for floors, underline the Alpine Austrian character of the atmosphere.
Conclusion: Alpine style of tomorrow, exclusively interpreted and newly translated into a modern architectural language.
