Austrian Alps Spa Hotel

Location Austria
Design Principal Tom Kundig

Located within an extraordinary alpine setting, the Austrian Alp Spa transforms a former military installation into a world-class hotel and health resort accessible only by helicopter or mountainside gondola.

The magic of this project lies in the delicate nature of its site, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. As guests move through the hotel and guest rooms, they will embark upon a journey defined by a progression of experiences that test the thresholds between prospect and refuge, safety and exposure, and adventure and comfort--in sum, the experience of nature in its full range of expression.

The design combines existing structures with new ones, resulting in a clustered ‘crown of thorns’ that minimizes the impact of overall development. Adding building height to existing structures and cantilevering new wings creates a visual experience for guests reminiscent of an aerie.
