Hotel Renovation, Ramsau

The three-storied Hotel building originally called Hotel Pension Stierer, built in the 1950s, used to be a popular destination for the sports fans. The building is located in the Steiermark, Dachstein region, a few kilometers away from Schladming, in the middle of a small settlement, Ramsau, with a picturesque view of the southern slopes of the Dachstein. Through the valley nearby one can reach the Dachstein Hunerkogel lift, which climbs up to the glacier on the height of 2687 m.

The new owner contracted us to create a cost effective plan for an overall renovation of the building. First of all, we had to reconsider the catering and lodging functions located on the rundown ground floor as well as to create a totally new wellness department on the basement level. Besides the renovation of the rooms on the upper storeys, a new unique image of the place was conceived by using the vintage posters promoting the ski-region and sports. At each room a certain former poster or detail of it was magnified and foiled onto the surface of the doors.

The planning and construction works took 6 months.
