The pure beauty of the Austrian mountains embodied in an architectural design capable of both dialoguing with the surrounding landscape and accommodating fascinating furnishing pieces inside.
We are among the peaks of the Wilder Kaiser in Austria, facing the famous Kitzbühel Horn mountain, perfectly framed by the large windows in the living area of this elegant chalet known as ALM360.
The interior design, by Aufschnaiter - a well-known Minotti retailer and design studio with more than 20 years of experience - was inspired by various key brand values: quality of life, peace and nature. These were translated to form a spatial synthesis in which the relationship between what we feel and what we see is one and the same, a cleverly designed compositional balance for a new interpretation of Tyrolean architecture.
The symbiosis of traditional raw materials and modern technological solutions brings a sense of exceptional comfort and a refined aesthetic to this chalet nestled in the green mountains. The spaces have been designed as welcoming environments: from the living area to the three guest rooms, each with en suite bathroom, to the large wellness area with sauna, Turkish bath and direct access to the swimming pool with its own outdoor terrace. The continuous connection between indoors and outdoors is emphasised by the choice of furnishing pieces from the Minotti collection, designed precisely to create a fil rouge between the domestic and open-air spaces. These include the rigorous Roger seating system by Rodolfo Dordoni and the Superquadra bar cabinet by Marcio Kogan / studio mk27 establish a dialogue with the graceful Tape Cord Outdoor chaise-longue by Nendo located in the adjacent wellness area. A seamless unit, not only to look at, but also to touch and perceive: kicking off your shoes, the Osaka wool rug designed by Minotti Studio is as warm and welcoming underfoot as the wooden slats of the floors. And the same warmth is reflected in the use of stone in the Keel coffee table by Rodolfo Dordoni, which brings the graphic veins of the mountains outside back into the home interior.
The large living area, characterised by the exposed roof trusses made of reclaimed wood, runs between the freestanding fireplace and the large panoramic windows, emphasising the awe-inspiring views visible from the living room and the large dining area.
The Linha table by Marcio Kogan / studio mk27, protagonist of the space in compositional continuity with the rigorous volumes of the kitchen, maintains the coherence in its own solid wood top. It is accompanied by the soft comfort of the Torii dining little armchairs by Nendo, perfect for spending many hours around the table, without ever tiring of admiring the surrounding landscape.
Adjacent to the living area is the master bedroom, whose enveloping mood sees the use of leather and fabrics with an extremely tactile texture: the Roger Bed by Rodolfo Dordoni synthesises this sensation, connecting the sober elegance of the leather base with the material headboard in woven fabric. The Harvey Line bedside tables, also by Rodolfo Dordoni, balance the interplay of textures.
The entire interior design is based on the sophisticated use of materials, shapes and their constant harmony: a fascinating mix of fine, natural raw materials and contemporary design influences.
