Text description provided by the architects. The Hotel Seehof is located on a high plateau near the village of Natz- Schabs/Naz-Sciaves near Brixen/Bressanone (IT) by the small natural lake “Flötscher Weiher”. In 2017 this family-run hotel added a new pool and wellness area directly on the lake – where nature and the recreational value are at the point of focus.

Celebrating The Nature

The new spa area with pool and sauna area connect structurally with the surrounding landscape and impressively opens up with its irregular potholes and pergolas through large panorama windows towards the lake. Directed views from the interior into the surrounding grounds, as well as inside open areas, so- called patios, concisely convey the feeling of being in a large park.
The design of the outdoor areas also play an important role. A natural unity was created here, in which the space can be walked through on different paths. Contemplative dwellings are spread around the lakeshore.

The combination of the architecture with the surroundings is most impressive here: the oblique, green roofs of the spa can be used for sunbathing, while this green area seamlessly transitions into the surrounding forests and fruit orchards. Architecture becomes landscape and landscape architecture.

"The wooden façade and its rough surface are related to the environment, with a focus on incorporating regional materials. The communication with the lake - important characteristic and name of the hotel - is deliberately staged here." Stefan Rier

The location of the heated outdoor pool affects the user as well as the extension of the bathing pond. The water level of the lake is on the same level, so that the infinity channel connects visually with the lake to an infinite water surface...

The interplay between architecture and interior design creates a holistic design in which guests and the recreation are celebrated within nature.

The Red Thread

The new interior design deals with the history of the place and incorporates it into the design.

In 1958, Jakob Auer, grandfather of the land-owner, founded the so-called soil improvement consortium on the Natz-Schabs /Naz-Sciaves apple tree plateau, in order for the traditional cultivation of apple trees to be intensified. The widely used water pipes used at the time become an inspiration for the interior design. Copper elements, which can be seen throughout the house, are consciously accentuated as a design element.

Special attention and incorporation of natural materials from the surrounding environment, was a focus point in the interior design. Wood, linen, stone, braided furniture and accessories in combination with bright, discreet colors correspond to the natural concept of the new Seehof.
