Gogl Architekten designed Wiesergut Hotel in Austria, located directly on the ski slopes and framed by age-old mountains, a white four-story house rises above an ensemble of minimal, modern buildings with floor-to-ceiling windows. Josef (Sepp) and Martina Kröll have transformed a 14th century family estate into a modern retreat that exudes organic warmth and comfort.
Your cares will melt away upon crossing the threshold of their alpine hideaway, as you succumb to the lure of the homey hospitality that forms the core of this sanctuary of light, nature, and fresh air. Local traditions take both new and familiar forms at Wiesergut. The plot of land that the Wiesergut stands upon has been in Sepp’s family since 1350 and has been used for small-scale farming since his great-grandmother Gertrude opened a guest house on the property two generations ago. The Kröll family tradition of farm to table continues today at the Wiesergut—with a twist. Photographs: Mario Webhofer.
