Set within the scenic mountain panorama of upper Styria, Austria, the “Deluxe Mountain Chalets” serve as an extension to the numerously awarded high- end restaurant “Wirtshaus Steirereck”. The ambition was to capture fantastic views across the valley, so the owners together with the architects decided to place the chalets on top of the mountain crest in order to provide 360 degrees views. Due to the existing forest along the crest, the architects derived their concept from bird nests and developed it into chalets which are floating above the landscape. Each chalet provides parking lots, gently integrated into the existing landscape underneath the buildings. The idea was to hide all M&E and technical components of the buildings within the landscape and to elevate the buildings above the terrain which gives a floating experience to the residents.
