Tofana Hotel by Lukas Rungger, Marina Gousia, Christian Rottensteiner and Lea Mittelberger

Home > Winners > #61054


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Tofana

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Hotel

INSPIRATION:
The dynamic personality of the owners (Yoga and Pilates instructors, mountain bikers, ski and snowboard instructors and mountaineers) has led the new Tofana to adapt to these two athletic powerhouses: the -mountain- becomes an abstract conceptual inspiration for the entire architecture. The outer silhouette is aesthetically pleasing with its unique scenic entourage and reflects the shape of a tree-lined mountain peak. The hotel acts de facto as a -base camp- for the guest.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
In the demolition and reconstruction of the Hotel Tofana in San Cassiano in Badia Valley, Italy, the surrounding mountain range served as inspiration for the new architecture and interior design. The concept of the new -Explorer's Home- transfers the athletic spirit of the owner family to the entire building...

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The new Tofana should become the temporary home of the guest... Meeting point, regeneration and recreational center as well as starting point or base camp for adventurers, sportsmen and connoisseurs. Following the motto -Never stop exploring-, the concept of movement and the infrastructure in the new Tofana Hotel, follow the principle of a climbing route, which can be traversed by the visitor. The nature and the mountain serve as a stage for various places to linger and relax.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in April 2016 and finished in December 2016 in San Cassiano, Val Badia, Italy.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The main feature of the facade design is the surrounding terraces and vertical connections in the form of external staircases and ramps, which on the one hand serve the purpose of fire protection and on the other, connect the outside areas and different floors. The main materials are reinforced concrete for the constructional parts, plastering for the external facade, large windows in all rooms and plants on the terraces.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Floor area 2470 sqm Storage rooms are located on the basement floor. On the ground floor are all public functions of the new hotel, including lobby, reception, bar and lounge, kitchen and restaurant, parking in the north as well as some secondary rooms like storage and access. On the first, second, third and fourth floor are the new rooms of the hotel, all at least 25 sqm, with large balconies in various sky directions. On the fourth and fifth floor is the spa and wellness center, including fitness room, saunas, lounges, rest rooms, relaxation rooms and a yoga room.

TAGS:
Mountain, silhouette, nature, panoramic view

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The interior design follows the alternating natural landscape of the Badia Valley: furniture and sofas in blue, green and brown tones suggest alpine meadows, biotopes, moss forests or rock caves.

CHALLENGE:
The design celebrates the evolutionary transformation of an originally compact building - into a layered structural landscape that sustainably reflects its surroundings... the house brings nature into the house. Small, playful details make the rooms unique, such as the lampshades made out of iron wire, which remind one of oil lanterns in an Alm hut. The playful tiles on the bathroom floor, wall and cieling prod the guest back to Grandmas time. Small mirrors, inscribed with words and sayings in the local Ladine dialect, give each room an individual character.

CLIENT/STUDIO/BRAND DETAILS
NAME:
noa* - network of architecture

PROFILE:
noa* is the essential expression of a collaborative work-ethos: the young team of architects & designers, led by founders Lukas Rungger and Stefan Rier and based in Bolzano (Italy), explores and examines interdisciplinary methods of design, continuously evolving depending on both nature and requirements of each project. By following the concept of „emergence“, where the whole is perceived as being far greater than the sum of its parts, a holistic approach and strategy is central to noa*s way of conceiving design.
