Bachhuber Contract carry out the conversion, renovation and expansion of 4-star hotel Traube am See in Germany
A hotel with a long tradition
The renowned 4-star hotel with 94 rooms in Friedrichshafen at the Lake Constance has a long tradition. Established in 1800, it has been run by the Felix family since 1962. The hotel rooms belong to different categories and are split in two underground connected buildings: 'Stammhaus' and 'Haus Seeblick'.
The hotel has been extended regularly over the years, with the latest carried out during spring 2018 by general contracting company Bachhuber Contract, which were completed in April 2019. The lobby, hotel bar, conference and breakfast room have been completely renovated and modernised. The indoor pool was newly built as well as 20 rooms in the new Haus Seeblick.
The interior design was created by architect Wolfgang Eckle and Anita Holzner from Bachhuber Contract.
Fundamental ideas behind the interior design
The feel-good atmosphere and warm colours that were incorporated into the wellness area can now be seen in the new areas too. But the rooms in Haus Seeblick have been designed in a more modern and linear style. Thanks to the new spatial conception, additional space was created in all areas.
Natural oak floors, individually crafted furniture, and fine fabrics create a very special atmosphere.
The spacious spa and wellness areas were also redesigned. A seamless transition has now been created between the sauna and relaxation area and the new indoor pool; where a large window with views across and access to the hotel garden creates open spaces.
The colour concept was inspired by the lakeside: earthy colours, natural materials, driftwood, sand, water, light and shadows blend into a unique harmony, especially in the newly built boathouse.
A stronger unity between architecture and lakeside landscape
The access road to the lake acted as a divide between the hotel and natural environment prior to its redesign, but now the unity between architecture and environment has created a unique outdoor area thanks to new colour conceptions and replanting.
