Description
This hotel and spa complex were created around a natural hot spring in the Austrian countryside. The artist designed the complex to reflect and be part of the topography. Building forms undulate to mimic hills. Roofs are planted with grass, shrubs and trees to imitate the surrounding vegetation. Features such as green roofs and composting toilets were integrated into the design to make the complex more sustainable.
The hotel and spa are about 120 kilometers from Vienna (Wien).
