The intention of the project was to create a large-scale family-oriented as well as high-quality recreational space, logistically designed with stylish building structures. The mountain range towering above the resort acted as a starting point. The entire resort is based on this fixed point and its structure follows the attempt to derive smart building design from it.

The apartment resort with its 79 luxurious vacation apartments is intended to offer up to 300 guests relaxation, cultural history and a homely vacation atmosphere of the highest standards. For this purpose, living, spa, fitness and restaurant areas extend over 700m² in cuboid complexes. The alpine influence is expressed holistically as well as in detail and in the construction of the building. The asymmetrical arrangement of the elongated and transversely oriented gable roofs is modeled on the peaks and jags of the mountain ridge above.

The alpine-smart spatial design runs through the entire complex. The large roof terrace, for example, nestles quietly between the ridges of the roofs, while inside, generous glazing in the public areas allows direct interaction between the guest and the vast surroundings. The use of local larch wood and Rauris stone completes the reference to the surroundings in detail.

Accesses to the outdoors create a playful relationship between the object and its surroundings. In the basement, for example, the southwest-facing sun terrace forms an extensive and harmonious transfer between the building and the building object. To ensure this kind of communication on an individual level, each of the units, which range in size from 35m² to 105m², has its own balcony. The Carpe Solem Rauris project proves that large-scale construction and spaciousness can certainly be brought into harmony with tranquility, retreat and relaxation through clever building structures and room layouts.
