About "Zum Grünen Baum"
"Historic guesthouse in a Medieval town. Venerable from the outside, cosy living design inside – the most successful new opening in the surroundings." - Geo Saison Magazine
Architect Dr. Christian Kapeller:
"The draft works of this project were based on the continuation of the 500-year old construction and the history of the guesthouse. Very interesting and at the same time a big challenge was the connection of history and presence to the building, the linking of old walls with modern workmanship in order to preserve and renew the unique charm of the building."
Architect Dr. Andreas Flora:
"It's a wonderful task for an architect to be able to design historic places like this guesthouse. An old and unused building can be regarded as a text fragment waiting to be completed. In addition to the careful restructuring of old rooms, we studied the historic traces of the house and therefore newly interpreted former usage and rituals.
