In the resort of Lech am Alberg in the Austrian mountains, the Gasthof Post is an exclusive 5-star Relais & Châteaux hotel that has been in the hands of the Moosbrugger family for 75 years. The building has recently been extended by the studio cp-architektur to include a luxury spa and 11 new suites on two floors.
The style of the hotel has remained faithful to the local, typically alpine tradition, evident in the choice of furniture, abundance of textiles and fine wood, décor, and the paintings by Günther Wasmeier placed above the hand-carved beds. In stark contrast to this style, the décor of the spa and swimming pool featuring oak, stone and wood is more Scandinavian in its modernity.
The colour scheme: the new suites are divided perfectly between green on the ground floor, as in the older interiors, and red and white on the second floor. The bathrooms are painted to match the rooms and connect to them through large double doors.
Set against mosaics in the luxury suites are the deep and welcoming Spoon XL and Ottocento bathtub, modern interpretation of the old cast iron baths. Both made in Cristalplant® biobased, a durable and technologically advanced compound, soft and velvety to the touch, they are a perfect complement to the ultimate experience in comfort.
