Located in Dienten am Hochkönig, Austria, this project was completed by Architektur Gerald Kessler. This alpine chalet has been lovingly restored under the consideration of specific environmental and architectural aspects. Only high quality materials and fabrics from the region were used. Many traditional alpine elements give the modern house a warm atmosphere.
Description by Urlaubs Architektur: Idyllically located the holiday home “das Hochkönig” sits on a sunny hillside in Dienten am Hochkönig with panoramic views of the surrounding mountains. With much emphasis on ecology and architectural details the house has been extensively renovated in 2014. Both on the façade and in the interiors matured timber has been combined with glass fiber reinforced concrete. This mix of local materials and concrete elements gives the building a both modern and rustic character.
The Hochkönig consists of two apartments: apartment Peda downstairs and apartment Ida upstairs (accessible via an external staircase). The apartments for each 7 or 8 people feature large living rooms with dining area, kitchen, wood stove, panoramic windows and access to a terrace or a balcony. Each apartment has 3 bedrooms and a sauna. Visit Das Hochkönig and Urlaubs Architektur
