Hotel in the Aurina Valley, Italy with Excellent Views Over the Mountains
By Magaly • Nov 1, 2017
This project is located on a hill at 1200 meters above sea level, and extends to the East in the Valley Aurina – Ahrntal, Italy. It has an extensive ground area – 5,300 square meters – and its construction was completed in 2017.
It has six floors in which there are 20 rooms, as well as a spa. The restaurant area has been enlarged. The expansion project has been considered as an “additional expansion” of an existing building, being remodeled only in the areas that such remodeling was necessary. The resulting building retains much of the old structure.
From there, we can enjoy the wonderful views over the green vegetation that covers its mountains that surround the hotel. The interaction of natural materials, such as the black larch that has been used, gives the building an obvious beauty. The characteristic features of the local typology have been used in a contemporary way.
In the bedrooms, we can find wooden floors made from larch that has been taken from the surrounding forest. In addition to the wood cladding used inside the building, clay plaster was also used – all local. This choice and combination of local materials has created a highly welcoming and relaxing atmosphere for its guests.
