HOTEL FX MAYR
client: FX Mayr
location: Wörthersee, Carinthia
size: 1500 m²
The project is our winning proposal for the new FX Mayr hotel in Carinthia. The visitors of this hotel undergo a strict purification regime and demand the most intimate atmosphere. We wanted everybody to feel at home in their own personal retreat. Therefore, we created a cluster of displaced pavilions with the most private and cosy hotel experience possible. The roof is tilted up towards the south, catching as much sunlight as possible and down to the north, dramatically framing the marvellous view to lake Wörthersee.
The visitors need a calm, contemplative atmosphere to completely concentrate on the purification process of their bodies and minds. We wanted to give them the feeling to live in their own house, with their own private gardens overlooking the beautiful lake. Gentle setbacks, natural elements and shifting the volumes against each other produce a secluded and private atmosphere in an otherwise densely populated plot.
