Loisium Hotel and Spa Resort with Wine Center
On the edge of
the picturesque town of Langenlois, one hour west of Vienna, a new wine
center and visitors’ facility was built on a gently south-sloping
vineyard to celebrate the rich local heritage of a magnificent wine vault
system. This historic subterranean network, which includes 900 year old
stone passages, underlies the urban plan of the town. The north-south
axis of the network echoes that of the Baroque houses above and suggests
the existence of a second town below that which is visible.

The Hotel and Spa Resort
Like the grid
of the city, the geometric spacing of the vineyard rows is continuous
through the landscape connecting the three elements. The 53m X 53m square
plan is aligned with the strict geometry of the surrounding vineyard rows.
Offering a variety of activities and room types, the Loisium Hotel Wine
and Spa Resort offers guests and visitors a variety of experiences. Earthlike
materials and palette combined with the views of the surrounding landscape
create a strong connection and relationship of the hotel to its context.
