These Submerged Round Organic Forms Will Be A Part of A Hotel Extension In Italy

Italian Architects Markus Hinteregger

Italian Architects Markus Hinteregger and Elias Lahner have unveiled an extension to a hotel in the mountain village of Luttach. Located in Northern Italy, this hotel restructuring will be based on the round organic forms of the surroundings that harmonize well with the landscape's hilly contours. Embedded in the land, this extension can be used for a variety of functions and offer a more natural open space for visitors. The architects’ design proposal won the competition organized by the hotel owners to extend and combine the entire hospitality complex in the existing hotel.

The architects will expertly connect the new traditionally-shaped volumes in the existing hotel consisting of a variety of volumes. According to the concept, the reshaping of the buildings with organic forms that look like that have been carved from the ground.

The round forms of the extension deliberately blend into the landscape and provide visitors with a change of perspective. These will be a focal point for guests who visit the hotel for a temporary stay.

An expanded metal facade covers the buildings, which are differentiated in dimension and height.

The exterior also features an extensive but minimalist design. Thus, the new facade will give an entirely new and surreal look to the hotel.


The dynamic elements in the new ‘face’ of the hotel allow the building to stay in motion. These openable shutters on the elevations set an accent and highlight the transformation of the buildings to the independent requirement of the guests.
