noa* (network of architecture) curates the hotel seehof with an atmosphere that is both alpine and mediterranean. the design of the space is driven in response to its location in natz-schabs, northern italy — deep in the mountains near the austrian border. the main building of the hotel recalls a monumental countryside residence, with its deep loggias, that serve to visually enlarge the suites and intensify the connection with the surrounding natural context. the new rough, earth-colored plaster combined with the new clear, horizontal wooden structure gives the hotel a noble appearance.

noa* (network of architecture) conceived hotel seehof as a hybridization of architecture with its surroundings. a pool and spa area are shaded beneath a series of oblique, occupiable green roofs which seamlessly transition into the surrounding forests and fruit orchards. architecture becomes landscape and landscape architecture. the location of the heated outdoor pool affects the user as well as the extension of the bathing pond. the water level of the lake is on the same level, allowing an ‘infinity channel’ a visual connection with the lake to an infinite water surface. the interplay between architecture and interior design creates a holistic composition in which guests and the recreation are celebrated within nature.
hotel seehof receives a new spa area, which is structurally integrated with the surrounding landscape. this space, with its swimming pool and sauna, opens widely upward with its irregular potholes and pergolas through large panorama windows towards the lake. directed views from the interior into the surrounding grounds, as well as inside open areas, so-called patios, concisely convey the atmosphere of a large park. the design of the outdoor areas also play an important role. a natural unity was created here, in which the space can be walked through on different paths. contemplative dwellings are spread around the lake shore.
