The project is located in Pass Thurn, close to Kitzbühel, Austria, and is part of a new 7-star Hotel development.

It consists of suites that elevate in the nearby forest of the Hotel, and that share the public facilities of the Hotel like lobby, restaurant, and Spa. The suites differ in size, and they go from 60m2 to 80m2. The structure is reachable by an outdoor stair and an additional glass elevator that connects directly up to the room. Each suite will include a bathroom and bedroom with glazed facades for stunning views towards the surrounding forest and mountains. The larger units will additionally have a private living room and a sauna in the bathroom. The project takes inspiration from local vernacular architecture while reinterpreting it in a contemporary way. The connection between men and nature is a fundamental criterion in this project. It should activate and amplify human senses with the use of simple and local materials while slowing down and living a moment within the top of the trees, a spatial experience within nature.
