Italian Accommodation in the Alps

Apfelhotel Torgglerhof

Apfelhotel Torgglerhof

It is all about the apple in the ‘Apfelhotel Torgglerhof’ in Saltaus in the Passiria Valley in Northern Italy. The agricultural farm and the hotel extend on 3 buildings and form the farm ensemble – surrounded by numerous apple trees and nature. For noa* network of architecture the starting point and key element of the design was the circle of the apple throughout the year: bloom, harvest, refinement and repose period.

Architecture and the apple
The hotel is extended with 9 new rooms and a new wellness while the public spaces as the reception, restaurant and bar are redone within the existing building. Inside and outside are connected and the apple trees are growing into the interior of the hotel.

The hotel welcomes the guests with the bloom: spring colors, bright apple flowers are on the walls and playful chairs create the lobby area and welcome the guests. A fireplace, which is inspired from the traditional ‘Wiesenofen’, creates a soft border in between the reception and the bar.

The restaurant dissolves in direction of the landscape with full height glazed sliding doors and continuous on the outside terraces; the border in between inside and outside disappears. The zoning of the different areas of the restaurant is made with different pastel tones of green, rose and yellow. Historic harvest tools inspire the lighting and an old workbench forms the buffet.

The new suites are located in the old stable keeping its outer structure; bars and beams are laid bare and loggias with glazed fronts are implemented in the façade. The ground floor turns into a museum with a shopping corner, where the history of the apple cultivation and of the Torgglerhof is explained. The rooms represent the refinement and the classic apple crate were the starting point for the design of the bed and the bathroom.

The entire sauna area is dedicated to the repose period and is diving into the nature in the truest sense of its word.

Dive into nature
The entire sauna area is dedicated to the repose period and is diving into the nature in the truest sense of its word. The building gets part of the landscape and forms an extension to the garden. The outer structure of the wellness building is totally green and is seen as a hill, which evolves into a mystical and intimate space at the interior.

The interior is kept pure and dedicated to the elegance of the materials. The earth-coloured concrete walls pursue the lines of the wooden slats of the sauna benches and highlight the sloped form. Concrete lamps form the lighting of the interior. The big window opening allows the guests to enjoy the great view towards the surrounding nature.

The spa area consists of a sauna with changing rooms and a shower on one floor as well as a relaxing space on the lower floor – always viewing the greenery of the apple trees.
