Luxury resort on the Alps
Luxury resort in the Kitzbühel Alps. Intimate atmospheres between Stone and Wood

The Kaiserlodge in Sheffau, on the Kitzbühel Alps is the project by architect Marco Holzer, who reinvents the traditional elements of a mountain hotel, revolutionizing the concept of a luxury holiday and opening it up to a freer and more flexible culture

The property is surrounded by an artificial lake of 1300 square meters where guests can swim and dive. The landscape has been concretely integrated into the design and the structure itself adapts to the morphology of the mountain in the background. The careful selection of materials results in a complete immersion in nature

For the external facades, the Camuna of Geopietra model was used, which has the same reflections and tones as those of the nearby mountain. In the rooftop spa, Murogeopietra naturally outlines the spaces of the swimming pools, saunas and relaxation areas
