Text description provided by the architects. The location of the property is majestic: In the south it borders the heart of the village, where the cemetery, local government office, fire brigade, music and community hall, public school and pre-school facility are located. On the western side, there is Wengeraustraße with its farm shop and where the ski bus stops. The road curves toward the north-eastern boundary of the property where also the cross-country ski route runs past. One accommodation wing is supported by six powerful reinforced concrete columns and projects around 23 meters over the rock garden at the entrance driveway of the hotel. This allows sporting enthusiasts to ski right up to the mountrain resort in true style.

The hotel complex consists of a low, massive basement with white plastering which opens itself to the mountain pa- norama with a curved glass façade and three attached accommodation wings with 120 rooms of different categories. These three building sections have slightly sloping monopitch roofs, are clad with larch wood, 19 metres wide and bet- ween 40 and 50 metres long. Each wing is oriented toward a different direction. This provides the loggias in front of the rooms with different views. The minimum layout consists of a bathroom, separate toilette, a seating section, a comfor- table bed and a glass sliding door on the loggia where two armchairs and a table are provided for guests. To ensure that the mountains can still be seen from the sun lounger, the railings have been kept low.

Three residences with apartments that are connected to the hotel via bridges complete the accommodation offered. With a flat saddle roof and larch wood cladding they are of the same type as the hotel wings; however, with their height of three storeys, a width of 13 metres and a length of around twenty to a maximum of 28 metres, they are considerably smaller. In this way, they take on the dimensions of the surrounding buildings and form the transition to the village, which borders the area in the west and south.
