A modern alpine style meets the most selective requirements

The OFA Group in Innsbruck has created one of the largest hotels in the Tyrol. The VAYA Fieberbrunn luxury complex has commenced its first winter season, welcoming guests to the snowiest holiday destination in Austria, right next to the Skicircus Saalbach-Hinterglemm-Leogang-Fieberbrunn cable cars.

This mega project has created a holiday complex with 450 beds on premises measuring 9,000 m². In addition to rooms, suites and penthouses of varying sizes with large terraces or balconies, the complex has stunning flats and chalets finished in a traditional style. The complex offers 4-star facilities with indoor and outdoor pools, a large spa, sauna and fitness area, 2 restaurants for breakfast, lunch and dinner, a cosy bar and lounge, underground parking, and a nearby path to the chair-lifts.

A modern and chic alpine style meets the most selective requirements. Generous living areas ooze glamour from every item of wood, stone and leather, and quality fabrics guarantee a relaxed sensation of wellbeing. Elegant rooms and top-quality facilities characterise this stunning design by the architect Karl Fahrner and his team. The large complex expresses originality and a modern vibe without breaking with tradition.

As an expert in mountain constructions and the creator of significant property and tourist projects in Austria, Karl Fahrner is a selective connoisseur of natural materials and craft skills. The high quality of the buildings required a stone installation to enhance the performance of the external insulation, creating a long-lasting sensation of wellbeing. The architect chose the Geopietra BERGAMO model for the VAYA complex in varying indoor/outdoor settings, combining the highest technical standards with the ancestral vibes of wood and stone. The professional installation of this material contributes fundamentally to the aesthetics and functionality of the solution. Its natural appearance conceals technical characteristics such as breathability, optimal thermal inertia, low conductivity and freeze resistance. Murogeopietra on external cladding also meets requirements regarding the non-propagation of fire to higher floors. The grey stone typical of the area, with a square profile and earthy, musky tones, combines with the warm grain of aged wood in stunning settings where the new design acknowledges the technical and emotional value of the traditional architecture.
