design et al are delighted to announce that Ingenhoven Architects have been shortlisted for a Hotel Under 200 Rooms Award in The International Hotel and Property Awards 2016.
Nestled in one of Europe’s most beautiful landscapes, the Lanserhof resort on the Tegernsee in Southern Bavaria offers 70 rooms and suites. Guests can enjoy preventative and regenerative treatments in this health resort. The Lanserhof combines luxury hotel facilities and state-of-the-art medical care under one roof.The architecture of the Lanserhof matches and supports the health philosophy of the resort. The cubic building with clear lines integrates well into the landscape. The floor plan follows the classic concept of a cloister, whose wings surround a green and protected courtyard that offers ample space open to all guests. Large windows and loggias open views to the surroundings of the bathhouse, a nearby golf course and the landscape. Sliding shutters with fine wooden lamellas provide visual privacy and solar shading for the loggias, and create open or semi-opaque spots. Like separate houses, the guest rooms reflect the principle that every guest should have his or her own place of refuge. Natural materials support the therapeutic effect of a stay at the resort and are part of an overall holistic approach towards a healing architecture.The health-promoting architecture emphasises research in building biology to ensure its compatibility with health aims. All choices were made in accordance with the criteria of the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB). Mainly natural and untreated materials were used, such as larch from certified sustainable sources for the façades. Wooden surfaces, shades of white and warm colours create a contemplative ambiance in the treatment and social rooms. The light colours and the elegance of the interiors add to a peaceful and friendly atmosphere.
