Atmospheric change of perspective. On 1314 metres above sea level, the Panorama House 1314 rises out of the dark green coniferous forest high up on the Astjoch mountain in St. Lorenzen, from where you can view all the highlights of the South Tyrolean landscape. From the expanse of the Puster Valley to the mighty mountain peaks of the Dolomites.
Even though the modern solid wood house with its towering structure and pointed gable borrows from the Ladin architecture of the region, it finds its own interpretation and, above all, proportion through its horizontal extension. Spread over four floors, a concentrated, almost meditative atmosphere unfolds here. All rooms are lined with brushed, untreated spruce wood, which creates a feeling of generosity and brightness. The minimalist pieces of furniture were chosen very consciously.
The ground floor is used for cooking, dining or relaxing in the living room in front of the fireplace or enjoying the panorama on the cantilevered spacious terrace. The extensively equipped kitchen in dark wood forms an exciting contrast to the light rooms and is subtly repeated throughout the house. The wooden staircase then leads up to the first floor, where there are two bedrooms, the bathroom and another small balcony. And under the roof, visitors can expect even more space for leisure time – with a magnificent view and special perspectives, such as the skylight by the staircase, which frames the forest and its treetops.
What to do
In summer, the Fanes-Sennes-Prags Nature Park invites you to go on excursions, on rafting, mountain biking and climbing tours, while the varied landscape of the Dolomites with its numerous mountains, high alpine pastures and lakes offers a wide variety of hiking and swimming opportunities. In winter, in addition to the downhill slopes at Plan de Corones [Kronplatz] and in Alta Badia, there are endless cross-country ski trails in Reischach, Pfalzen and Enneberg. At any time of the year: Enjoy South Tyrolean specialities and wines, a trip to Taufers Castle or to Bruneck, which is only 15 min away.
