Hotel Milla Montis, vernacular architecture turned to contemporary
By Editorial Staff -

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 Milla Montis 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 project consists of four connected volumes that are inspired by the context and scale of the surrounding buildings. The composition is inspired by the vernacular architecture of the region and the classic wooden barn and reinvents a contemporary reinterpretation of this typology. The slightly shifted sloped roofs and the curvilinear exoskeleton façade are reducing the scale of the building. All the rooms and public facilities like Bar, Restaurant, and Spa are facing the breathtaking panorama of the Dolomites, framing them like artwork.
