New architecture, good food and pure nature

The existing buildings of the restaurant and agricultural facilities, which have grown over generations, were refurbished to a high standard and supplemented with additional buildings.

Two new glass houses are embedded in the given hillside situation and connected to the kitchen landscape below via atriums that are flooded with daylight. The warm and smaller glass house supplies the kitchen with fresh herbs and spices.

The large glasshouse is used as a cold greenhouse for year-round plant cultivation. Additional overnight accommodation – 1o heated cabanas – can also be found in this part of the building. A new bathing area was modelled under the cold glass house.

Complementing the existing building, the new salettl is open and transparent, with a view of the surrounding nature. Spatial comfort is enhanced with flexible, changeable wooden slat curtains. This makes it easy to create a variety of different room areas.
