Design Hotels in Carinthia
The CUBE Nassfeld is an autonomous fun factory in Carinthia, a piece of urban lifestyle transplanted to the countryside. The solid, cube-shaped building is enclosed by a steel and glass construction which, by night, is lit in different colours. The hotel opened its doors in 2004 and has since been hard to miss. Rough materials such as concrete and steel dominate the no-nonsense design concept and lend strength and weight to the building, while the use of glass conveys a sense of light and openness. And the interior is just as extravagant. The rooms, which are very functional, all come with a “showroom” where sports equipment can be stored. And the buzz continues outside of the rooms with large public zones on all floors, designed to encourage communication.
Carinthia’s first design hotel opened its doors in 2003 and offers 15 suites overlooking the lake. The Aenea entices with its classical architectural design coupled with clear and modern lines. The symmetric design language with black, white and silver colours creates a minimalist and exclusive ambiance. The hotel’s wedge-shaped layout ensures that all suites enjoy equally great views of the lake. Glass, metal and plaster are the dominating materials at the Aenea. Soft carpets, comfortable leather chairs and upholstery and warm light lend the hotel an intimate feel. The rooms feature Minotti and Rodolfo Dordoni furniture, and the bathrooms boast Philippe Starck.
Falkensteiner Hotel & Spa Carinzia, Hermagor
Located in the foothills of the Alps, the Falkensteiner Hotel & Spa Carinzia perfectly blends with its natural surroundings. The entire hotel, which was finished in July 2005, represents a holistic architectural composition. Corners, curves and smooth edges structure the 200m long complex. Expansive atriums with water channels and plenty of green create a nature experience within the hotel’s confines. The spacious glass lobby forms the centerpiece of the building which was designed by Arkan Zeytinoglu. The rooms’ special decors leave place for emotion.
