“Hotel Construction of the Year 2014” Award and BAU.GENIAL Award 2014

October 2014

Vote of the “Hotelforum”: the Forsthofalm Hotel, a timber framed building, is the “Hotel Construction of the Year 2014”

Forsthofalm Hotel in Leogang in “Salzburger Land” county in Austria has received the award “Hotel Construction of the Year 2014”.

Mr Andreas Martin, the chairman of the “Hotelforum” jury said:

“A mountain inn for skiers, which opened in 1972, has been converted into Forsthofalm Hotel with a complete timber frame. Being successfully run by the second generation of the Widauer Family, the hotel, which is open throughout the year, is a timber frame construction without glue. The coherent and particularly sustainable concept of this holiday hotel has fully convinced the jury members. The vision of the owner Mr Markus Widauer has been excellently realized in difficult logistic circumstances by W2 Manufaktur Architects.”
