The current extension of the Hotel Steigenberger in Krems by 32 rooms, as well as the conversions in the exterior and interior are a good example of the high-quality and sustainable architecture for which the office GERNER GERNER PLUS is known for over 20 years.

The spectacular scenery of the vineyards, in which the hotel is embedded, has been highlighted in the best possible way by the architectural design. All levels in the house are now barrier-free, environmental requirements, which are particularly high in the region, were of course taken into account. Examples include the use of geothermal energy, the use of solid wood windows and a ventilated wooden facade.

The hotel’s original structure was completed in two stages. Obtaining a number of consultants’ expert opinions on landscape protection was necessary during the planning phase. Smooth progress and complying with the given time frame was made possible by conscientious cooperation among all the parties involved.

Thirteen large planters were arranged next to the hotel’s balconies. The deciduous trees planted in them, which are several years old and grew together with the building and the natural surroundings over time, represent a central element of the design.

The uppermost floor of the new building houses a spacious wellness area with a rooftop terrace which provides a spectacular panoramic view of the vineyards and the Danube. A bridge connects this new area and the existing indoor pool.

The ceiling between the pool and the added floor was dismantled, creating an atmospheric connection between the existing and new buildings.
