The quartier apartment hotel flanks a new residential district, which was built on a former hospital premises in the heart of Garmisch-Partenkirchen. The construction in modern wood architecture differs from the traditonal local building type and stands out, but nevertheless refers to its surroundings: The four asymmetrical gables evoke a mountain backdrop. The ornamental decorations on the southern façade of the otherwise simple building take up the wood carvings of the adjacent old building. The connection is not only visual: the villa is connected to the hotel by an intermediate wing. In the old building there is a day bar with a library and fireplace, a seminar room and one apartment. The new building comprises 18 apartments (one of which is barrier-free). These lodges are a modern interpretation of the traditional mountain chalet in apartment form. The apartments, which are fully glazed to the north and to the south, have a purist but also very homely character due to the dominant use of wood. Each apartment has a kitchen with seating area, a sleeping/living area with a double bed and a bench in the window, and a bedroom with built-in bunk beds. The lodges on the upper floor also have an open gallery.
