Bergmeisterwolf, an architectural studio, has designed the extension of the Nature&Spa Vitalpina Hotel Pfösl in Nova Ponente, in the province of Bolzano, an accommodation complex situated in a natural setting with a strong visual impact, surrounded by meadows and forests

The resulting free space has led to a new, more harmonious and natural connection between the buildings
