Hotel Milla Montis in Maranza, a timeless Alpine style

Peter Pichler Architecture won an invited competition in 2019 to design a new hotel in northern Italy. The new Hotel Milla Montis was inaugurated in October 2020.

The hotel is located in Maranza, in the Italian region of South Tyrol. Meadows and fields surround the well-shaped mountain of the small Alpine village, just above Puster Valley, a tourist destination well known for its marvelous hiking routes. The project location is characterized by its unique scenery and impressive panoramic views of the Dolomites Mountains.

The new hotel structure is fragmented into four shifted volumes to break down the scale of the entire structure while at the same time respecting the scale of the surrounding buildings. The composition is inspired by the vernacular architecture of the region and the classic wooden barn reinventing a contemporary reinterpretation of this typology.

The curved shape of the exoskeleton façade is inspired by the pitchfork used by local farmers. Maranza is a small village in South Tyrol with a significate agricultural background.

The interiors are simple and functional, a timeless Alpine style. Ash wood is combined with typical green loden textiles, adding a dash of color while giving continuity to the natural palette of the surrounding landscape.
Wood is the main protagonist of the project, both outside and inside, creating contrast with the exterior blackened wood and the interior lightwood.

The façade reflects the internal program and reacts in scale with larger and smaller openings (public vs. private spaces). Most of the public spaces such as reception, bar, restaurant are located on the ground floor level and speak directly to each other.

The first two underground levels are made of concrete while the upper floor is a timber structure. In terms of energy efficiency, the hotel achieves the most important local sustainable certificate called Casa Clima accomplishing the “A” category, being the highest one.
