Chalets Laudegg, Austria

Anyone admiring the images of the Refugio Laudegg will understand why the ensemble of four vertically offset buildings won the Alpine Interior Award 2011. Although unmistakably 21st century in its language of shape, the structure fits in nonetheless perfectly with the historic town centre. This is thanks to the proportions and the materials used: Grossglockner alpine wall panels from Mareiner at the front and behind them the heat-treated, rough-cut boards from Sankt Marein.
