Turmhaus Tirol

Situated in the Tyrolean Alps, Turmhaus Tirol is built into the gradient of a steep mountain slope and reaches up six floors into the sky. The lower three floors are dug into the slope itself and form the concrete foundation for the wooden structure. Flamed larch boards of different widths, some of which overlap, give structure and character to the façade. The windows, arranged according to functions of each room, also liven up the reduced design of the building, with its wide cantilevered saddle roof.

Türalihus

The Türalihus is part of a historic ensemble of buildings in the centre of Valendas, Switzerland. This small mountain village on the banks of the Rhine in the Safien Valley is known for its stately town houses. First built in 1485, the Türalihus has been extended multiple times over the centuries – with annexes, additional levels, and the stairwell from which the house derives its name. The house stood empty from 1941 until 2007, when the Swiss “Vacations in a Listed Building” Foundation acquired it from the son of the well-known Swiss architect Rudolf Olgiati and transformed it into the holiday home it is today.

Hotel Gasthof Krone

The traditional Hotel Gasthof Krone is centrally located at the village square of von Hiltisau in the Bregenzerwald. The typical log building from 1838 was originally a courthouse, but has been used as an inn for 170 years. At the beginning of the 2000s, architect Bernardo Bader carefully renovated the building with great respect for its old structure and extendet it with six rooms. What has been added in a modern way is clearly recognisable, but does not form a contrast, but a harmonious addition to the old. The finesse of the local craftsmen can be seen in every detail in the dining rooms and hotel rooms.
