• Forest hotel Schmücke
    Rennsteig, Thüringen (D)

    The historic building in the scenic location of the Thuringian Forest is situated by a thoroughfare. The building fabric was run-down, and not only required renovation, but was also to be extended to include an accommodation wing with a wellness area. The aim of the plan was to give each guestroom a unique view, while minimising interference with the landscape. The fact that the extension is embedded in a hillside means occupants of the old building cannot see the new rooms.
