The conversion of the wellness area at ’ Hotel Felsenhof’ in Flachau (Salzburg, Austria) is part of a long term development concept which tranforms and adapts the existing structures of a locally grown familiy hotel into a contemporary hotel business through different modular phases. The main focus lies on a family friendly hotel which offers an easy, ecological and open minded atmosphere for young families spending their holidays in the alpine environment.

Mochi Restaurant in Vienna, Austria by Kohlmayr Lutter Knapp

Tuesday, May 29th, 2012

Article source: Kohlmayr Lutter Knapp

The story of the two Mochi founders roots in learning how to cook with Pierre Gagnaire and Jean- François Piège in Paris while the other directed BMW World’s restaurant in Munich. Their vision was to create a space where people and ingredients could meet on the highest level of atmosphere and quality. Beyond regular parameters of star cuisine and slick architecture a space should be created challenging a next level of authentic encounter.

URBANAUTS | STREET LOFTS in VIENNA, AUSTRIA by Christian Knapp & Jonathan Lutter

Authentic experience has become an important value to urban travellers. Individual impression instead of mainstream sightseeing is what motivates modern tourists today to explore major cities. A new hotel concept now offers the infrastructure for trips off the beaten track.

The idea is simple and convincing. Due to its proximity to the city life Vienna’s ground floor zone symbolises an area of unique urban character. At the same time massive vacancies of city shops urge for their revitalisation. URBANAUTS bridges both aspects using vacant boutiques as authentic habitat for travellers. Former shops become central hotel rooms – URBANAUTS Street Lofts.

The concept is unique. Hotel is no longer regarded in terms of a self-sufficient building. Based on the theory of the horizontal hotel it stretches out over the city. Fragmentation is the keyword. Rooms are spread within a district, adding up to segments in different parts of the city.

A quiet oasis right in the middle of the city centre. Entered directly from the street the lofts offer a most private and discreet space right next to where city life happens. Spacious and comfortably furnished they create a new category of Boutique Lofts among the family of Boutique Hotels. Their strong connection to the city is always sensible through the art work of local artists who are invited to account for the past of the loft.

Di Piu in Vienna, Austria by Kohlmayr Lutter Knapp

Friday, May 25th, 2012

Article source: Kohlmayr Lutter Knapp

The design principle at the restaurant located in a downtown shopping mall in Vienna was to avoid establishing a spectacle located in a place of excessive percipience. First and foremost the people, the excellent food, the taste should be percepted not the design. The new skin, the visible layer, consists of modificated, recombined and low priced materials which are quite unusual for the use in an gastronomic environment. They receive new haptic and optic characteristics through it’s large scale adjustment.

The extension to the Kuchl campus was completed as a modern timber construction in September 2009, being the first university building to conform to passive house standard. The building occupants were to engage in their activities at a university location that puts the academic focus of “Timber, design and sustainability” into practice. The school′s own building was to serve as a “best practice example” in Kuchl and benefit from the positive experiences of 400 students as spokespeople.

Summer House in Southern Burgenland in Oberbergen, Austria by Judith Benzer Architektur

The project Summer House in Southern Burgenland (Austria) describes a sharp-edged cubature which fits into its surroundings through its simplicity and homogeneous appearance. In being used as a summer house, and by virtue of the installation of a wine cellar with production surfaces at a later date, the building’s design is oriented by the cubature of the Kellerstöckel(wine house) typical of the Southern Burgenland region.
