The new suites are basically the crown to top off our building. We’ve added an extension, rotated the roof and now have it tapering to a high, sharp angle. It’s simultaneously a traditional style of roof in our region and also a clear contemporary line.
Freedom and functionality, fantasy and fun – the demands placed on the interior design of hotels are many and varied. A challenge that makes our design team at home INTERIOR light up. Insights into beautiful hotels, episode 5.
In this remote location, you can truly get away from it all: Liebenstein lies near to Bad Kötzting and in the middle of the Bavarian forest. We took a trip to the forest to talk to Thomas Mühlbauer, whose family founded the hotel and has run it for over 50 years.
It’s very clear: a high roof is airy and creates expansiveness. On the other hand, a hotel room should receive guests as if with outstretched arms full of warmth and cosiness. Architect Stefan Ghetta and home INTERIOR worked together to develop the corresponding ideas and material concept.
We’re familiar with this kind of panelling from headboards and seating benches. Rarely have I seen it used the way we’ve used it here: across the entire room height and upholstered with a mix of different fabrics. In combination with the wood in particular, it introduces just the kind of warmth and comfort that’s important to us.
In our company, we set store by continuity and reliability that move with the times. My father also worked with home INTERIOR, and I am very pleased to be continuing this collaboration. It was originally our trusted architect, Stefan Ghetta, who put us in touch with home INTERIOR. That was a stroke of luck.
They’re delighted! It’s not just the new suites getting plenty of praise, but also the redesigned areas in the restaurant, which bring a classy clarity to the atmosphere through colours and fabrics. Room for our guests and our team to breathe.
