Bridging the tension between tradition and modernity 

Embedded in the breath-taking mountain landscape of the Salzkammergut, the new wellness and spa resort “Narzissenbad Aussee” is built on the “Lerchenreither Plateau” in Austria´s geographical heart and well-known recreational area Bad Aussee.

Local building tradition and modernity are combined to a contemporary architecture representing a mixture of domestic materials and modern, expressive design. The sharp and edgy form of the outer shell refers to the characteristic mountain range surrounding the area of Bad Aussee.

Depending on the point of view, the shape of the circumferential structure is designed to act as a continuation of the alpine skyline or to stand out as an independent, topographical point. The latter is accentuated by the tall entrance tower that marks the highest point of the building.

The centrepiece of the resort is a brine grotto which was symbolically shaped as a salt crystal to underline the theme of brine itself. The interior design of the swimming complex combines the picturesque nature of the “Ausseerland-Salzkammergut” with the themes of salt and brine.
