The preview of Falkensteiner family hotel in Austria

2022 - Ongoing

A new hospitality project where VSP signes the interior design in a building realized by the Norwegian firm Snøhetta.


The Falkensteiner Group's new family hotel dialogues with the surrounding area. The structure is built on four levels, taking advantage of the the slope of the mountain, and consists of two buildings connected by a central part, where the common areas are located. 


Untreated wood and white-plastered walls pay homage to the local building tradition, where the Montafoner Häus, a stone and timber construction, has been the architectural archetype of the area for centuries, forming the cultural landscape of the valley.


The project is in keeping with tradition and its genius loci by choosing vernacular materials, but above all an evocative colour palette, which draws inspiration from the peculiarities of the Alpine landscape and in particular from three-phase farming, an agricultural technique that has shaped the life and culture of the rural population for centuries.

"Based on the typicality of this ancestral agricultural technique, which alternated sowing crops winter, autumn and spring, we focused on the various shades of natural colours, making it the central point of our interior design," say Tiziano Vudafieri and Claudio Saverino.
